It Depends: Each pregnancy can be different and require a different amount of ultrasounds. Most Obgyns would like: 1. Early Ultrasound to confirm Due Date 2. 11-13 week US to screen for genetic conditions 3. 20 week ultrasound to check for fetal anatomy Other ultrasounds would depend on any maternal or fetal indications

High risk pregnancy: The usual and customary procedure for a 'normal' pregnancy is a 19-20 wk Ultrasound, the previous pregnancy must have been high risk to justify all those ultrasound tests that early. Just being older than 35 makes you high risk, so you need to talk to your OB and find out what's best

Would it be smart to get checked for adhesions that may have evolved from a c-section I had 4 years ago?

Depends: If a patient has had surgery, they will most generally form adhesions. This is very true for women who've had cesarean delivery. If the goal is pain reduction, it may be worth have laparoscopy, but if just curious, may not be worth the risk involved having surgery.

Infant vomiting: Vomitting infants can be serious as it would not take long for them to get dehydrated. Vomiting can be a sign of other illness such as upper respiratory infections, ear infections and not just GI illness, best to have infants evaluated as soon as possible.

Probably yes: You should have had blood work to see if there is a fixable hormonal reason why you are skipping your periods. In general the pill is an excellent and safe way to regulate your periods. I recommend either asking more questions (maybe going with a list or a friend) so you understand your treatment better. It is unusual to do a D&C for a "stuck" period. Usually that can be treated with medicine.

A 39-year-old female asked:

My 17year old son just had a 12 lead ECG done it showed t wave inversions in ii, iii, avf & v4. Could the barium from an ugi series cause this?

Nonspecific: T wave inversion may be part of a normal ekg and has to interpreted by a doctor. Inverted t wave is normal in iii and sometimes other leads without meaning anything alarming. Have the doctor let you know what they think. The ekg interpretation can change with age as well so you need expertise to read them at this age.
