20 week scan with a horrid cold

I have my 20 week scan tomoro (yay) but I have a hideous cold. And I mean really hideous- temperature, runny nose, sneezing, saw throte, the works. My question is, should I go? I am worried about sneezing over a room of pregnant women and infecting them.

Your views please?

I don't know how difficult it is to get another appointment, or how small the waiting room is, or how flexible your work would be with another appointment so I'd consider this all first, then maybe ring them in advance. If you are feeling so snotty, do you think you'd rather wait another week or so (hopefully!) and try for another appointment? That might sound a bit more appealing if it's good news and you can celebrate nicely rather than feeling ghastly with all the symptoms you describe above. Get well soon flowers

Thanks for your reply d0tty. Me temperature was normal and I could keep a lid on the sneezing so I went. I am now at home resting and enjoying that I know my little girl is all ok smile x
