Hello im having a scan on friday after a bit of bleeding i had 3 days ago just to check everything is okay. . do you get a picture or can you normally buy one at this type of scan? i would love a picture if i have little healthy blob
Hey, I had scans at 6 and 9 weeks before the 12 week one for exactly the same reasons and the sonographer did me one picture each time for free without me asking to reassure me which was lovely. It's quite a small team at my local hospital and for the last 3 scans I've had the same lady so I'm hoping that I get to see her again at my 20wk scan in 3 weeks which seems an absolute age away! From what I understand what you get differs from hospital to hospital - but I have to say that it is nice to have one. If it was me I would just ask and I'm sure they'll print you one off x x x
Thanks for replying . .i didn't think it would be that's why im just going to "i know you don't usually but please can i buy one?" I want a photo so bad just to prove to myself there's something in there when i have my silly doubts! but im 9w today so if they don't i suppose i only have 3 weeks until i get my 12w one
I had a scan at 6+6 because of bleeding and we were so worried about the baby that we didn't think to ask about pictures until the end when it was too late. The sonographer had printed out some pictures for official use and she let us photograph them with a camera phone. That might be another option if they won't print a picture for you. Our baby was fine (she's now three months old and very healthy). Good luck with your scan.
Hi missmartin I had one at 6 weeks and I didn't get to take home a photo because it was just basically the yolk sac no visible baby shape as such. Then I went back last week (8 weeks) and I got to take home the pic, not sure if that's just because they discovered I'm having twins that day. Good luck for Friday let us know how you get on x
We got one at 8+3 with Dd1, we had lost so many pregnancies by that point we were regulars on EPAU. It was the first ever scan we found a heartbeat. They gave us a few pictures and 3/4 of the staff came in to see too!
I was given pictures at 2 early scans - the first is just a blob! Amazing to think that's what my baby looked like only a few months ago .
The second was at 12 weeks, and only around 4 days before my official dating scan. I didn't ask for either picture but I'm so pleased I was given them! These were in the epau, not the ultrasound dept, where you have to pay for them.
It was lovely to have the one at 12 weeks because we celebrated my granny's 91st birthday that weekend and I was able to show her the picture.
