This is my first pregnancy. I hear that for high risk pregnancies, mommy has to have more ultrasounds than a regular pregnancy. What I want to know is how often does one have ultrasounds with a high risk pregnancy. I have had 2 so far and am 9 weeks.
snh571 responded:
Normaly you will have one every 3-4 weeks. It really depends on why you are high risk. I have cronic hypertention and gestational diabeties so I have them done every 4 weeks on the average. I am also over 35 so that adds to the number of visits. I had 1 US at what we thought was 8 weeks and it turned out to be 12 weeks. Then I had a 2 nd done at 13 weeks to screen for downs syndrom. Then after that I have had them every 4 weeks to watch babys growth. The hypertention causes small babys and the GD causes extra big babys. At my 20 week I had to have a more detailed US than normal to make sure that babys organs were deveoping normaly because I was taking some pretty nasty pharmacuticals durring the first 8 weeks.

The 20 week ultrasound is a common one. Pretty much everyone gets that one to check the development of the baby. It does depend on why you are high risk as to how many you will get.

I am high risk due to being a Type 2 Diabetic.
snh571 replied to candy352's response:
You will probably have an US every 3-4 weeks to moniter growth and development.
