Ultrasounds
So I read an article that found a link between additional ultrasounds and autism. I had abdominal pain in my fourth week of pregnancy and the ER was nervous it might be ectopic so I had four ultrasounds in one week to confirm it was a normal pregnancy. My question is do you have to get ultrasounds at your prenatal visits? I'd like to just do one more at week 20 to confirm my due date and find out the gender but don't know if that's possible. I haven't scheduled my first prenatal yet (on the to do list, but the clinic closes at four and I never seem to get through before the cutoff time), so these are probably questions to ask then, but it'd be nice to get some guidance before hand.

Here's the article. http://www.thedailybeast.com/witw/articles/2013/04/29/are-ultrasounds-causing-autism-in-unborn-babie...
