20 week scan

I’m due to have my NHS 20 week scan on 26th. I will be 20+6, is this a problem? They booked it for me themselves so assuming it isn’t. I’ve seen quite a few posts that they’ve had bad experiences, been in there a long time etc. is it true I’ll be in there a while? 30 mins is the longest I’ve seen someone post abou...

Bleeding during a transvaginal scan

I had a scan today (7weeks 4 days), we saw baby - strong heartbeat, the right size and in the right place. However it was fairly painful and as soon as the sonographer removed the probe there was a pool of red blood. Through-out the day it’s stopped actively bleeding and become brown discharge but I’m wondering has...

What percentiles at your 20 week scan?

I had my 20 week scan at 20 weeks 3 days - and the baby is measuring mostly 30th-37th percentile on everything apart from 25th percentile on cerebellum (part of brain)! Midwives says anything above 10th percentile is nothing to worry about but I’m wondering what others measurements have been?

Drop in fetal weight

So my baby has always been on smaller side. My first was born at 39 weeks at 6lb7 I’m currently 36+2 and my scan today showed a drop in baby’s weight. He gained weight but wasn’t following the line as he was before. They haven’t told me his percentile and I can’t see what it is as it’s all on badger notes and doesn...

Early scan?

Did everyone else do an early scan? I can get one before I see the midwife for my “booking” appointment. But I’m not sure if I want to do an early scan or not. I want one to check it’s actual happening but I don’t know😂

5weeks 3 days - normal?

Had a scan today and saw a gestational sac and a yolk sac. Doctor didn’t seem concerned so is this normal? Another scan in 2 weeks. I have early scans because I’m high risk & preciously had an ectopic pregnancy.

Went for 12 week nhs scan

We know they’re not really allowed to say at this point what they think it is but we could tell by his face he knew what it was. We saw babys boy bits clear as day haha! The sonographer said he’s 75% sure it’s a boy and by the end of the scan he said I’m saying 80% Bcos im not allowed to be 100%🤣 Maybe if someone…

Gender…🩷🩵

Has anyone had a gender scan where they refused to write the gender down for you? I’ve had a few people say they can’t or won’t and me and my partner are so set on having this happen so we can let our friend sort stuff for our gender reveal… would be a shame if we couldn’t do as planned but just wanting to hear peop...

12 Week Antenatal App

Hi! I’ve got my 12 week scan/antenatal appointment next tuesday and i’m really worried about them weighing me. I’m plus size and i’ve always had a mental issue with getting on the scales etc. The last time I got weighed was probably 6 years ago and it sent me spiralling into a border line ED. I’m just wondering if I...

12 Week Scan 🥰🩷💙

We've had our 12-week scan today and EDD is 6th September 🥰🥰. We are keeping baby's gender a surprise until the big day but just for fun what do you all think baby is? Also just to say feeling very relieved after a couple of anxious days where I panicked about my symptoms suddenly disappearing!!
