I've just read on an NHS website that "all pregnant women will be offered an early pregnancy scan at 8 weeks" (will find the link if anyone's interested). Is that actually the case? I certainly wasn't offered one when I had DS1 2 years ago.
I'm 10+2 weeks now and have my scan next week, in worried its a little early for nuchal translucency but have been assured its ok. I don't know anywhere that offers early scans as routine. We paid £99 for scan at 7 weeks as I had concerns about ectopic and wanted to relax for Xmas. Best Xmas pressie ever, if you can scrape together the pennies I say go for it yourself but I realise it's a bit steep! Btw, anyone else have to pay for their picture of sonogram at 12 wk scan - we do, £4 per pic. Thievery!!! Good luck ladies x
Yes, you had to pay at Leicester where I had my ds. Same price, but the sonographers there would always give you loads of extra pictures. First sonographer forgot to take my payment card so I was able to use it for my second scan too. Didn't feel guilty as like you I felt it was a rip off!
