I have my babybond scan tomorrow and I am scared, excited, nervous, hopeful all at once. I will (I think!) be 10+3 tomorrow, and as I've posted before, not had huge symptoms but for a bit of crampiness early on and tiredness really. So I am praying all will be okay. Still have no idea when my NHS booking appt and scan will be! But has anyone else had a scan at roughly 10 weeks, or even better a babybond scan at this point? What will I be able to see/hear? Thanks in advance
I don't know when my NHS one is, and in my area they are sometimes waiting as much as 16 weeks to see a midwife. So... reassurance I suppose (And tbh I don't know what else, that's partly why I am asking if anyone else has been!)
At 8.5 weeks we saw a tiny baby shape, only just the beginning of arms and legs but a clear head and body. You should see limbs now. We also saw heart beating and the sonographer also gave us a tiny blast of heartbeat sound! The beats filled the room on their speaker system! That was unexpected and wonderful!
We got several scan pictures too and they estimated due date too.
I'm due 12th June, my scan is 30th Nov so two weeks to wait!! It's getting very frustrating but I'm already showing this time so that's my reassurance really. My other symptoms have gone but then I didn't really have much sickness, just a lot of tiredness! Though I did do another pregnancy test last week just to be sure!! Ha!
Thanks robin - that sounds amazing, I am excited now!
Llamallama, going by my guess dates I'm due the day before you, and I'm the same, haven't been sick or anything, just tired! Symptoms basically all gone now too, and it's my first so I decided just to go for the scan. I am guessing I won't get my NHS one until maybe 2nd week in December I might chance my arm tomorrow and ask for a blast of sound, thanks for the tip!
Hi I had my booking scan at 10+5 was able to see our baby's head spine arms and legs and see heart beating didn't get to hear it but was so overwhelmed it didn't matter! Good luck and relax and try to remember as much as u can it goes so quickly!
I've had quite a few baby bond scans this pg, starting from 9 + 5 weeks. All I can i say is, awesome!! Well worth the money! And getting the reassurance is just priceless. Pics are always v clear, even from so early on, and when baby is bigger, and, if like my baby, uncooperative, they re-arrange a date, free of charge, to try again On this scan, they should also let you hear the heart beat! Not only that, but being a fan of freebies, they also gave me free baby mags, woohoo!! Good luck and enjoy
If you are wanting a nuchal fold measurement you need to chase up to make sure you get your NHS 12 week scan on time. Not everyone wants this test, but there is a specific time window if you do. www.mumsnet.com/pregnancy/nuchal-scan
I had a scan at 10 weeks due to bleeding, and I could clearly see a little baby waving its arms and legs. Cute!
Thanks ladylike and worsestershiresauce! I'm quite surprised by how much people have been clearly able to see, so I'm hoping for a nice clear shot of dc1 this afternoon! May go out to the cinema to waste some time, getting impatient
(I'm pretty sure we aren't offered nuchal fold in our area as standard, but not too bothered about this tbh - thanks for mentioning though )
just wanted to update for anyone reading, had a lovely scan tonight at babybond, the staff were lovely and the sonographer in particular was so nice.
We were in for 15-20 mins, saw baby very clearly on a lovely big screen, strong heartbeat thumping away and little arms and legs moving around It was such a relief and such an emotional experience. The sonographer said it was a gorgeous baby, very active and happy nods proudly Baby even treated us to a wave!
So pleased and clutching my bundle of photos. Thanks so much for all the pointers!
