I'm now in the 3rd trimester (week 28). I asked my midwife if I should have another U/S, but she told me firmly that she will not prescribe an U/S unless it is really necessary. I always thought that an U/S in the 3rd trimester is normal.
Well, I would still like to have one, as I want to confirm the gender of the baby. Maybe it's a little bit selfish, but if I knew that it would have a negative effect on the baby, I would never do it. But if it's ok for the baby, why can't I have another U/S?
Can I maybe get a prescription from my GP?
Please let me know what you think about it? I won't get offended, if you think, I shouldn't have another U/S.. Promise.
