Ultrasound vs Sonogram

Postby snoeliah » Fri May 22, 2015 10:26 am

I am due for my first prenatal visit on Thursday at 8 weeks. My doctor's office said they probably would just do a history and exam on me and then schedule my ultrasound at that appointment. I've been waiting a long time for this appointment (not really but it seems that way). Am I allowed to ask for an ultrasound? What about a sonogram? Is there even a difference?

I think the two are the same thing, just different terminology.

Sending lots of positive vibes your way for a good appointment.
