Question Should I?

I saw my midwife yesterday. I always love having my visits with her. An uninterrupted hour!!

Anyway, when I had my u/s last week the tech didn't get the clearest pictures of the heart. There is really no concern, but I do have the opportunity to have another u/s. Should I do it?

Baby was not really cooperative when we were checking for gender, and I'd love to be more sure than I already am. I'm torn! I know that everything is okay, so is it selfish of me to do the other u/s??

I'd love to hear your

Re: Should I?

I would go, especially because they are the ones to offer it. They probably all want peace of mind about the heart.

Re: Should I?

My doctor isn't giving me another one right now, so I am paying for one out of pocket just to tell the gender so I can get things ready.

Re: Should I?

Well, if it was all covered by insurance, and you really want to have another one.. do it! If it were me, I could care less. But w/ my last pregnancy, I wouldve jumped on any chance to see the baby! Follow your heart!
