    We had an “unofficial” ultrasound at our first appointment (8 weeks) that the OB did in the exam room with the transvaginal u/s machine. Our real ultrasound (with a tech) was at 20 weeks.

    My OB’s office does one at 10 weeks and then again at 18-20 weeks for an anatomy scan.  I also had a 6.5 wk (b/c of a prior issue) and also one at 12 weeks (elective NT scan).

    I had my first appointment when I was 8 weeks and 5 days (they wanted it between 8 and 10 weeks) and they did a transvaginal ultrasound.

    Not counting my ER visit (6 weeks), my first scheduled ultrasound was at my 2nd appointment (11 weeks). My first appointment (7 weeks) was just bloodwork, family history, general pregnancy information.

    I had my first one right at 6 weeks, but I had previous miscarriages, so they tend to do them earlier and more frequently.

    In my province, unless there are issues with the pregnancy, an ultrasound isnt done until 19-20 weeks. That is when measurements are done and if there are no complications that will be the only one. Luckily, the tech I had was amazing and went into a ton of detail for about 30 mins after she had done all her work. I have a “babymoon 3D ultrasound” scheduled for my 29th week – but that is optional and not covered by our health system.

    Generally 8-10 weeks I believe.

    I had a transvaginal u/s at 6 weeks when I went in to confirm, and I have another one tomorrow at 8 weeks.

    My doctor does them at every visit, so I had my first one at 6 weeks.

    I was exactly 7 weeks when I had mine. Second one was at 12 weeks.

    I voted first appointment because that was the closest option, but in actual fact my first ultrasound was at 7 weeks 4 days and was done at the hospital but that was not my first prenatal appointment. My first prenatal appointment was at 6 weeks 1 day and was in my OB’s office.
