Do I or dont I

I've been stressing out now that my 12 week scan is next week that there might be something wrong with the baby, ie Downs. I rang the hospital on Friday and asked them would they look for any abnormalities or just simply confirm the pregnancy and dates.

She said if I mention it the sonographer will have a quick look and see if all is well. She said if anything is glaringly obviously wrong then they will tell me.

She seemed quite surprised when I said I would be 11 + 5 when I was scanned and said they don't normally scan till 18 weeks! :shocked: which I think it wayyyy too long. She said they don't routinely do the NT scan and this I'd need to go private and she recommended Leeds Hospital. I need to have this done between 11 and 13 + 6 weeks which if there is something amiss doesnt give me a long time to book in..

Do I book a scan now at Leeds then cancel should all be well next week or leave it till after my scan and hope to get a scan within 2 weeks?

I'm getting in quite a tizz. :rolleyes:

I had a private NT scan (in the Midlands). I think I made the appointment around 9 weeks, and the scan was on the 11th week. (It may have been slightly later - it all seems so long ago now!).

I then had another scan at 22 weeks on the NHS.

The pvt scan certainly put my mind at rest. The appointment lasted about 45 mins., (with scan and chat). I'd definitely do it again were I to have another baby.

Hope that helps.

I've made an executive decision and booked in with Leeds Hospital for 30 May at 9:00am. If all goes well next week I can always cancel it. Its £100, well spent for peace of mind.

Thanks

Yes, i thought the NT scan is routine here too. Maybe they just do it later? Surely if they do the scan then they can do it earlier too.

think I'll look into this


First Scan Date: 22 May 08

Second Scan: 10 June 08

When I rang the hospital last week she said this first scan just basically confirms the pregnancy and dates you. They don't do a lot else. If there is something glaringly obviously amiss they will say but it's a quick in and out scan - no frills. :rolleyes:

Routine NT scan at the fist one isn't nationwide as yet.
