@jesstagirl  I’m in Greece, and

I had the 8week appointment which had a vaginal exam, as well as a scan, we got to see the bean and hear it’s heartbeat.

Second I just had the other week, and was my 12 week scan, although because of NAtional Holidays etc it was actually a 13 week scan.  We had an ultrasound (And they gave us a 25 minute DVD of the scan).  We were extremely lucky and got to find out the sex.  He’s a boy!!  This test was primarily for the A-Test as it’s called here, or Nuchal Fold Test.

We will be going again at 16 weeks, where we will be having another scan, and the doctor has also scheduled that we meet with a specialist for a fetal echocardigraphy as I was born with a minor heart defect and they want check that baby is OK.  My conditon isn’t hereditary, but as the doctors said that better safe than sorry.

Next visit will be at week 25 for yet another scan.  That up to now is all the information I have.  They do a lot of scans here I think…

EDIT:  150 Euros sounds about right.  We’re paying 120 each time.  Check with your health insurance if you would be able to claim this back.

I go every 4 weeks until about 7 months.  Then it’s twice a month for 2 months and then once a week until delivery.  I had an ultrasound at 8w for dating and then the anatomy scan at 19w.  Those are the only 2 I’ll have as long as nothing is wrong.

I think your experience is fairly typical for a low-risk pregnancy. I had a 8 week dating ultrasound and saw my midwife approximately every 4 weeks. We were offered the 12 week nt scan but didn’t do it. Our anatomy/gender ultrasound was at 20 weeks (she said before that wouldn’t be as accurate for gender & I think they want babies to grow more for when they check organs and stuff).

I live in Colorado, am 36 weeks now & just started my weekly visits.

Right now I am going every four weeks. When I get to my seventh month, I will go every two weeks, then once a week in my ninth month.

So far, roughly every four to six weeks. After the next one, which is Sept. 19, it’ll be every two weeks.

I’ve been seeing my midwife every 6 weeks and just had an ultrasound at 20 weeks, which for a healthy pregnancy is completely normal.
