Quoting Tiger Lily ♥:" Honestly.........Why would you want one? When I got to a certain point, ultrasounds hurt. She would press on my hip bones, my ovaries, everything...And it was quite painful."
Quoting Jennybananna:" The anatomy scan should never take 5 minutes. There is way to much stuff to check. They usually last ... [snip!] ... check all the measurements, check the heart, blood flow, all the valves, the kidneys, the brain, the cord, the sex if you ask. "
Quoting Two Princesses:" I lost my first baby in the second trimester and I wanna be sure everything is ok. How far along were ... [snip!] ... 3D/4d Ultrasound at 28 weeks 2 days and it didn't hurt too bad. but I didn't have another for the duration of the pregnancy."
Quoting Two Princesses:" Rea lly? :O Makes sense. Maybe it was 15 minutes or so? It was some time ago. I know it was for sure ... [snip!] ... for sure not an hour though. I'll be asking my OB all sorts of questions today that I never thought of with my two year old DD."With my second my first anatomy scan was an hour because they were having issues checking the heart chambers. They finally called it a day and had me come back in a few weeks. There really isn't a set time just once they check everything they need to check.

Quoting Tiger Lily ♥:" Ohh. I thought you meant you just wanted one for the hell of it. Hah. I had my first at 20 weeks and ... [snip!] ... 36 weeks and 5 days. The one at 36 weeks was the most painful for me. I honestly felt like she was stabbing through my uterus."
Quoting lilmzzgreeneyez *NMOA*:" My pregnancy is normal (not high risk) and my Anatomy scan took about an hour. It was last Thursday and ... [snip!] ... and if they are checking for everything it will take some time. especially if baby is moving too much or in a weird position."
