when an obstetrician does an ultrasound, do they keep an actual picture of the baby for their records, or do they just keep info like on the measurements and stuff.?

If I remember right when I had mine, they didn't keep a picture, just the facts & measurements.

They told me to bring a VCR tape if I wanted a copy; otherwise, I saw nothing to suggest he kept the record.

<ETA... got a few brain cells in line and remembered that he did indeed print up a couple of pictures for the sake of the next doctor to review the sonogram. I was there on a complication though and he focused on those areas.>

Depending on the person doing the ultrasound. When my wife was pregnant with twins they printed pictures every time they did an ultrasound and she was given a few pics to keep too.

I have pics and video of our son and the OB has pics in my file, along with pics of all the other things going wrong inside, I really hate seeing them when we open my file every time I go in.

oh my gosh! totally! I remember the first time they showed me pics after my lap - uh - no thanks! then they asked me if I wanted to see a video of the surgery. EW! no! Let's just stick to the blurry black and white bean pictures.
