When do you get an ultrasound if you're pregnant?

ANSWER

Women get an ultrasound around 20 weeks into their pregnancy. During this ultrasound, the doctor will confirm that the placenta is healthy and that your baby is growing properly in the uterus. The baby's heartbeat and movement of its body, arms and legs can also be seen on the ultrasound. Tell the health care provider who does the ultrasound whether or not you want to know your baby's gender. And remember, ultrasound isn't a certain way to know your baby's gender.
