I am having a scan tomorrow, and I am 8+5 weeks, I had a small bleed yesterday, do you get to keep a photo as this is not the normal 12 week scan?

I doubt it. You could ask but they often charge for scan pictures.

When I was in your position and had a scan, I did get offered a couple of pics but only once the Dr had established all was ok. Good luck!

Was just wondering, thankyou!smile would only like one as I'm a worrier an think it would help me to look at it and think that everything will be fine!

I had a scan at 8+5 and was given photos. It was a private one, so nhs may be different.
Baby is little more than a blob! But having them to look back at kind of makes it feel real.

I hope it all goes ok for you flowers

Thanks girls! And I hope so too Frolicacid, had two previous miscarriages at 4 and 5 weeks, and yesterday had a bleed and sharp pains in my left side :/ took the hospital 7 hours before they even got to me! Fingers crossed flowers

I got one at 6 weeks on nhs.

I'm sorry to say I didn't. Not even allowed to take a photo of the screen sad

The first time i had a positive outcome scan at 8 weeks i got given a photo. The second time i didn't

Bubba19alicia Mon 26-Jan-15 22:11:17

Really really hope I get one, think whether you get one or not is probably down to different districts and areas with different rules/funding.

I had an early scan with my second child (currently 6 weeks and kicking about on the floor in front of me) after a bleed. I did get given a picture which I didn't expect and was lovely to receive. Couldn't make head nor tail of it mind but it was still lovely to see the teeny blob anyway. Congratulations

Defo ask! Worst scenario they say no! I was offered though. Good luck with the scan!

Jodie1982 Mon 26-Jan-15 23:58:10

I've had a few emergency early scans and was never allowed a photo. sad

I had regular scans from 6 -12 weeks and from 20+ and only stopped getting photos after the Baby was too big and made no sense on the screen ...

My EPU don't give out photos and there are signs in the waiting room to that effect. Good luck and thinking of you.

Where I am you buy a ticket in the waiting room for £3 and exchange it for a print out. I had a scan yesterday, was supposed to be 12 weeks but turned out to be 8 and she gave DH a print out and told him to keep the ticket for next time.
Could be because she scared us so much though, being earlier than expected she couldn't see anything and I had to have an internal scan instead.

Our hospital charge £4 for photos but when we had a reassurance scan at 7w 6 days she gave us one for free which was lovely of her. We were just so relieved baby was in right place with heartbeat I didn't think to ask so was an added bonus. Hope baby is ok

We got a picture at 7ish weeks, and it was free. Just a blob but very special!

We had a few more scans and if we got a pic we were asked to put some money in the donation box.

I was given a free pic at the epau when I went for an early scan
But every clinic is differant

I had an early scan due to spotting at 8+5 last time and wasn't offered any photos, although to be honest you couldn't see much anyway. I had a private reassurance scan at 8+6 this time and got photos but that was probably because we paid for it smile.
