8 week scan - my experience

Hi all, just been for an 8 week private scan and wanted to share my experience. It was £75 for a really thorough scan, a whole pile of photos and a DVD. Just for putting my mind at rest I feel it was worth it but I felt the whole thing was a really lovely experience.

Straight away, he showed us the baby and the heartbeat which made me breathe a massive sigh of relief! After that, he gave us a really in-depth scan, measuring and dating the baby and having a good look all around for any cysts or other abnormalities. I had been worried about the possibility of having an internal scan but they got a really clear picture from a trans-abdominal hooray!

Highly recommended - especially if you are just too impatient like me to wait for a 12-14 week scan!

I had 6! Similar situ to Boogles they're NHS ones.

The problem is now they're like "you're off high-risk - see you in 6 weeks". And I'm paranoid!

DH said he'll pay for a 'sanity scan' as he calls it, he can send the photos up to the outlaws up North too. smile
