Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Normally you get your first ultrasound around the time of your first docotr visit which is about 8-9 weeks into your pregnancy.
My first was about 10 weeks, or after the initial "hello I'm pregnant what do I do now?" doctors visit. So usually when your little bean is beanier size than the first couple of weeks. They also do this so they can try and get ya a heart beat. Then the big ultrasound (this is the is it a boy or girl one) is between 20-24 weeks.
