How many Ultrasounds are recommended in 1st trimester? My doc advised Ultrasound after every 10days till 1st trimester gets completed..isn’t it too much?

Actually for me 1st ultrasound done in 6th week. And after that in 4th month NT scan.. have u had ur 1st ultrasound and did u find heartbeat?

Vini yes same for me..till now i already had 2 scans..one i had too early at that time i only saw the sac and other i had in 6th week in which i did found the heartbeat..and now 3rd one is due for tomorrow.

Even I had only one ultrasound in first trimester

Please tag any doctor and let me know if too many scans are matter of concern?

If u have found the heartbeat. .usually only one or two are done in first trimester

What if a heart beat of 112 bpm in 6 the week is found and still the doc suggests to do one more scan before the NT scan????

Every 10 days... 🤔, I am not doctor but I don't think so it's normal I have heard it for first time. Are you facing any problem?

Mrs Chhoker no this is my first pregnancy.i will ask her tomorrow but on the other hand i feel relieved also getting to know about baby growth since at this point of time i don’t feel anything from inside(just nausea)the only symptom i am facing..but i don’t want to have any side effects

If everything is fine no need of scan for every 10days..ask your doctor

Hi krutika my baby's hearybeat in first scan too was 112bpm at 6th week my doc immediately started hcg shots but did not ask to to do another scan until nt.
I am not very sure on this but i have heard not too many scans are also advisable in pregnancy and every 10 days? No not really! So far i haven't heard anyone even here say tht they have had so many scans. Plz consult your doc as to why she wants these scans.

Yeah she has already started the HCG shots... m when asked she said that just wants to confirm the heart rate n hence advised one scan prior to the NT scan

Ok. Let me check my file and see if i had any scan after hcg shots before nt scan. I will get back to yoi after sometime omce i have checked.

I heard baby heartbeat at 10 week via Doppler and then had nt scan at 12 week

Hiee nikita if everything is fine and baby doing well , their is no need to do scan.
I had 3 scans during my 1st trimester.

Hi!!thank u all for the replies..i did ask the doctor today.she said they do will all the patients to be on extra precaution side..i dont feel like to cross question more to her..and also now next USG scan will be after 15days..

Hey nitika.
Checked my file, after my hcg shots i had done nt scan. No scan in between. Go ahead with what your doc says now.
