i have my 12 week scan next wednesday (valentines!) and i’m very nervous. they worked the date of my scan out from my last missed period but i have long, irregular cycles and i honestly think at my scan next week i might only be 8-9 weeks. does anybody know what will happen? the midwife advised me to keep the appointment just in case. will they be able to see anything? and would they make me another appointment for when i am 12 weeks (so they can do the nuchal fold test etc?) just wondered if anybody has experienced this.
Hi guilty, my hospital got their dates wrong and I went for my first scan at 10 weeks. I thought it was a bit odd, having read they only do some of the tests from 11 weeks onwards but went with it anyway. They did the scan and just booked us in again for a couple of weeks time so they can do all the tests. It wasn't an issue at all, they apologised a lot, but I've got an extra scan out of it so don't mind! Hopefully it will just be the same for you, and you get a bonus earlier scan!
Happened to me, gave me very quick scan to show heartbeat but told too early for any measurements. Given next scan date for 2 1/2 weeks later where they did nuchal fold etc. There wasn't any issue with the dates being wrong at all.
I went to midwife booking appointment and then she sent me for scan the very next day. Was around 7 and half weeks and ended up having an internal scan. Still got pictures etc (just a little baby jelly bean in photos) was then made another appointment for 12 weeks for scan and tests. Good luck and don't be worried! Xxx
This happened to me Went in for 12 week scan and I turned out to be 10+5. They still had a good look, the baby was bouncing around lots! They could still see the remnants to the yolk sac so knew instantly that I was earlier than they thought. They took some measurements, gave me my new due date, then got me back in at 12 weeks. Was lovely having a second scan! What was most incredible was seeing how much the baby had changed and grown in that time.
