Hi, Im about 5 weeks pregnant and I happened to visit my doctor last tuesday(4W 2D) when she did an abdominal ultrasound n could find a gestational sac. She asked us to come after 2 weeks to find the heartbeat. I hear from my people saying so many ultrasounds might not be good for the baby but my doctor asks for 1/month. How many ultrasounds do they normally do here in the US? Does normal insurance bill u more if u have ultrasounds every month? My SIL says she had juz 2 of them -1 in 8th week n the other in 20th week(this was 6 yrs back). She says everything else, u might need to pay out of ur pocket. Is it true? There r a few doctors around who call u for ur 1st ultrasound only when u r 8-12 weeks around but my doctor asked us to come in immediately. Plz advice as Im confused on whom to listen to.
