Quoting NICKEL☮POLIS:" Haven't vaccines been linked to Autism too? I don't know.. it doesn't worry me. If I do end up with a child with autism I won't be blaming the ultrasounds."


People swore for YEARS that vaccines cause autism, there was a study that "proved" it... and then the study was proven to be an absolute fraud.

Quoting Destiel:" here abortions for medical reasons are banned from 18 weeks (or 21 they keep changing it) ... so the ... [snip!] ... changing it) ... so the 12 week transnuchal ultrasound is important for people (like me) who would abort for triosomy 12 or 18."


Aborting for medical reasons isn't banned everywhere....When I was pregnant with my daughter, who has monosomy X (Turner Syndrome), they made the diagnosis at 18 weeks, and I declined to terminate...They told me I basically had until I went into labor to change my mind.

ahhh fair enough ... in Australia you have til 21 weeks unless there's a danger to the mothers life. Even then they'll just induce you and hope for the best.

Here you have an ultrasound at approx 12 weeks which checks the dating accuracy and also if it is a single or multiple pregnancy. You then have another at 20 weeks to check everything is normal and that is it, just 2. Unless you have a high risk pregnancy and then there will be more.

If you are paying privately and have a normal pregnancy they do not recommend more than 2 ultrasounds either here.

What is the voluntary one for and do most people volunteer or refuse?

I say voluntary because Medicare won't give you money back unless you're considered a high risk for downs ... my cousin refused the 12 week and ended up with a downs child that she abuses and neglects quite badly. My mum (being an ultrasonographer) insist I have it done and does mine for free before work.

Oh no that's really sad :( In fact our 12 week one checks for that too I'm sure.

My OB with Nora did his own; he used a portable machine instead of a doppler until you had your 20 week scan. He said it was less stressful for everyone involved if he just did ultrasounds instead of hunting for the heartbeat with the doppler.



And moms always liked looking at their babies. I took the girls in with me for one of them and he printed them their very own pictures.
