What to Expect at Your Third Pregnancy Ultrasound in Germany

By Lisa H

Last updated on 10 January 2024

Your final scheduled prenatal ultrasound will take place around week 30 of your pregnancy (between weeks 29 and 32).

The doctor will measure your baby once more and evaluate how it's growing. They'll also check where the baby is positioned and where your placenta is located.

But don’t worry, your baby has a few more weeks to find the “head down” position desired for labor.

This may be the last time you “see” your baby inside your belly before it is born. You may be surprised how much they will resemble the picture you see at the appointment when they are born!
