Growth scan

I've hady 36 week midwife appointment and have been sent for a growth scan for tomorrow. My partner is unable to make it as he's working. Just wondering whether you get a photo like the other scans? Also can you film the screen? He's gutted that he's missing it.

You can't film sadly due to silly data protection rules and you don't tend to get photos because they're all squashed up x but ask and see what they say on the pics x

I’ve never got a pic with a growth scan.

No filming and 9/10 no photos, I had one last Monday and babe was so squashed and in my pelvis you could barely make anything out. Plus they are too big to get proper photos but sometimes you can get lucky and get a profile headshot depending on where babies head is x

I’ve had two growth scans now and you honestly can’t see anything really, no face or anything they just measure baby but not how they would have on your 12 or 22 week. My partner had to miss todays and he honestly didn’t miss much other than the skull trying to push through my pelvis and some toes in my ribs

Baby is so big now that there won’t be that much to see as they will be so screwed up! It’s all dependant on your sonographer as to weather they will let you take a picture of the screen or print a photo xx

Thank you all so much for your replies.

I always ask for a photo at my growth scans, last had one at 32 weeks and got a clear photo. I’d say definitely ask for one xx

I’ve gotten random pics at growth scans. Think it depends on who does them

I got a photo of the face/head at growth scan. Wouldn’t hurt to ask if your husband is gutted to miss it

I got a photo last time but had to pay for it

I’ve had two growth scans and have been given photos both times, without having to ask xx

I got a photo at my growth scan x

I got a little photo of a foot at week 32 because of position they couldn’t see his face. Always worth an ask 😊

I had a growth scan at 34 weeks and couldn’t see a thing. Baby super squished xx

@Charlotte thank you for that. Hopefully they can get something. It's interesting to see the face soo close up

I’ve my 36 week growth scan tomorrow but I’ve always come away with a scan photo and without asking also but just ask and explain your partner couldn’t be there xx

I've had one growth scan now and no pictures were offered. To be fair, I couldn't see much anyway, as there is much less room in there now. My partner couldn't attend either because of work.

Sometimes if they get a nice photo they can print it etc but they’re not told to. So it’s not guaranteed. But yeh no filming. It’s nice to see baby again but NHS scans to me feel very medical rather than bonding. I paid privately for any bonding ones x

I think it depends on hospital as I get a photo every time I get a scab
