Generally, healthy women receive 3-4 ultrasound scans during pregnancy, one in the first trimester to confirm the due date and another around 11-13 weeks to detect any abnormalities in anatomy and to do chromosomal testing. A third is done at 18 to 22 weeks to assess thel anatomy. If any abnormalities are detected during an ultrasound, your doctor might recommend more. A 4th ultrasound growth scan is done in the third trimester.
