    Question Is too many ultrasound harmful?

    I have 2 drs since my pregnancy( for safety reason). I have almost needed to visit doctors every week due to internal bleeding. I had ultrasound every vist (i.e almost every week) until now 17 weeks. Does anyone know that too frequent ultrasound is harmful to the baby?

    Never heard of side effects associated with ultra sound. Even if there are, I imagine there is a need for it and that need outweigh any potential harm. Personally, I am all for ultrasounds. When I was pregnant, I had monthly ultra-s, then weekly towards the 8th and 9th month. It gave me peace of mind to know that my baby was developing normally, that his organs were functioning and umbilical cord away from his neck.

    But if you are concerned, you really should talk to your ob about it. Your baby's health and well being is the reason you are visiting 2 docs hence having weekly ultra-s, so make sure what you are doing is good for her!

    Our ob-gyn said that if ultrasounds were a problem, the ob-gyns would know because they ultrasound their babies constantly.
