I know they say “around 20 weeks” but did your doctor schedule a separate appt at 20 weeks for your scan or do it at an already existing appt?
My appts are every 4 weeks now which means I will have an appt at 18 weeks and one at 22 weeks…Do you think she will do the scan at 18 weeks? or make me wait until 22 weeks? or schedule something in between. I will obviously ask the doctor next time I see her, but just wondering how it went for others.
I think if its 18 I will wait and if it’s 22 I might need to schedule one of those too impatient to wait sonograms at a local place that does that 🙂

The schedule I was on would have had my appointment scheduled around 19 weeks, but my office just put it off for another week so I could have the ultrasound & routine visit all in one at 20 weeks. I’m sure if you ask your Dr, they’ll accomodate. I don’t think the schedule is super-strict (I didn’t end up taking my gestational diabetes test until I was 29 weeks because of outside events & they didn’t make a fuss at all).

Mine is Thursday in two weeks. I will be 19w1d.
ETA: Usually, major ultrasounds, like for anatomy and genetic screening, are done by ultrasound technicians at your doctor’s office, not by your doctor, and it’s usually a separate appointment.

I had mine when i was 18w 1 day. I had to schedule a separate scan for that one and it took about an hour but we also found out the gender then so I was ok with how long it took!

i’m having mine at 19w exactly. they do it between 18-22 weeks depending on when your monthly appts have been. i’ve scheduled them to be on the same day so we can do the sonogram and then have the follow up with the doctor.

I had mine at 19 weeks exactly. They were going to schedule at 20 weeks exactly, but my Darling Husband couldn’t make the appointment. So they just scheduled me for a week earlier.

Mine was at 20w2d at a perinatologist. They would not do it earlier than 20w.
