Dating scan

Finally the long awaited dating scan is complete! Felt like it took forever to get there. Another bit of reassurance for people who have had no symptoms, i barely had any and no nausea at all but everything is perfect 🥰 we’re so happy. Due date Friday 13th 🫣. Any thoughts on boy or girl?!

20 week scan

I just had my scan and they told me to come back in 2 weeks because they can't check something because baby didn't want to move. They also couldn't check gender yet I'm so angry she didn't check anything. Did anyone else had to go back for their 20 week scan ? I had private gender reveal scan at 16 weeks but wanted...

Early scans

I’ve just found out that I’m pregnant again (not even 4 weeks until tomorrow). My first pregnancy ended in a MMC in February, we found out at the 12 week scan. I’m looking at private scans but I’m wondering if they’re worth it as our first stopped growing at 8w6 days and we would book a scan for around then/maybe be...

Anatomy Scan

For those who found out the gender after the 20 week scan with the NHS how did it go? Are the sonographers ok with not verbally saying what the gender is? My gender reveal is 2 days after my scan and want to find out the gender at the reveal but not sure if the sonographer would write the gender on a piece of paper ...

38 week scan

Does anyone know how accurate or inaccurate weight estimates on growth scans are? I had my 38 week midwife appointment and my bump was measuring bigger, so was sent for a scan, which shows signs of GD (large abdomen, slightly high fluid) and they said it's currently weighing 9lb8!! I've never had glucose in my urine...
