Pregnancy scans after 20 weeks

Postby Katss » Sun Apr 06, 2014 9:15 am

Hello,

Just wondered if anyone had any advice on scans after 20 weeks.

With my first I was given another growth scan at 32 weeks but this time they didn't. It seems such a long time between 20 week scan and 40 weeks, so I'm thinking of getting another scan just to check everything and to see the baby.
- when is the best time to have a scan between 20 and 40 weeks? When did you have yours?
- Does it get difficult to measure the baby when they are getting bigger? Some clinics seem to say that around 28 weeks is best for 3d scans but they do normal scan after that.
- what's your experience with 3d scans? Also do the private scanning places still do all the measurement and checks as well as just showing you the images.

Many thanks for your advice.

Hi Katss,

I had a 4D scan at 30 weeks last time. I should have went sooner, they usually recommend between 24 and 28 weeks. also my placenta was at the front which meant that the pics weren't as clear as they could have been. It is also very dependant on the position of the baby. also what they don't tell you is that only about 5 - 10 mins of the scan is in actual 3D, the rest is a normal scan.

for the scan in NI it cost me £210 back in 2009. if you can get it cheaper I would recommend it but not for the price I paid, would rather now spend the money on a break away before the baby comes or a day at the spa for you to get pampered!

I would not have missed out on our extra scan for anything, we went at 28weeks for a 3d scan and it was truely amazing. We got to count fingers and toes and even saw our little one stick his toungue out!!! The scarey thing is now when we look back at the 3d photos we can really tell it is him.

check the company out below they scanned me at 9weeks round this time as we are having twins and it was lovely just seein them. The way I thought about it is that some people would spend that amount on a posh meal or nihht out and not even think about it!

Hi Mamfa,

Thanks, I have actually looked at this company too (they have a scanning clinic near us) and I think I'm going for the 3d/4d scan when I'm 28 weeks! We probably won't have any more kids after this little one, so it's my last chance to enjoy being pregnant and I think I deserve this scan! lol

I think I already said it on clomid buddies but congratulations again on your twins, hope you are feeling well.
