Hi lovely ladies,
Just wanted to share my experience at the dating scan appointment. Although my letter mentioned I could bring in 1 person for the scan, my husband was not allowed. so that was a bummer. I went in for my scan and I heard a beautiful loud heartbeat, had tears in my eyes and I wish my husband was in the room to share it. The radiologist was quite indifferent , I had to keep asking her questions regarding the scan. I got 3 scan pics where I could barely understand whats happening. I believe the scans at 13 weeks are quite clear, mine wasnt, but Everything seemed normal with the report by God's grace. Then I met with the midwife, who was friendly and very informative - she took blood to test for downs, thallasaemia, etc. Anyone has a first scan at nHS that dint seem clear? Next appointment at16 Weeks is via phone, and then the Anomaly Scan at 20 weeks and after that all meetings I was told would be face to face.
