Just wondering if anyone had any advice for the 20 week scan in Holles St? Mine's tomorrow morning!
Someone told me to bring a book as I'd be there for a while!
Do I need a full bladder?
I guess I just turn up with the green form?
Im attending the rotunda, cant give much tips apart from you dont need a full bladder and enjoy! Its amazing!!!
I was waiting 5 mins for my scan, no book needed.
I walked through this dept the other day to go to my antenatal class and there was only 1 couple waiting also. They don't seem to keep people waiting.
No full bladder needed either. Scan lasted about 20 mins.
Best of luck
We just went up to Fetal Assesment, got there about 20mins early but they didn't mind at all! We were then sent to sit outside Admissions as there is 2 scanning rooms beside that & midwive called us in after about 15 minutes.
You dont need a full bladder, she just explained that she would take a detailed look at the baby first & then explain it to us when she was done.
We got about 8 little pics & she explained everything in great detail to us.
It was a very pleasent experience & all the staff seemed very helpful.
Best of luck!
I just had mine today & it was amazing!
Thanks for all your advice!
Looking forward to it but nervous at the same time!
You Jan 09 mums are great. I've been taking a peek every so often but finding it difficult to join in as my Mum passed away when I was 9 weeks pregnant but thanks for all your chat as it kept me going!
Anyway, all positive now for tomorrow!
Thanks again xoxo
pinklf so sorry to hear about your mam, it must be hard for you!
I'm sure she'll be looking down on you & your little babs & taking care of you both!
Whenever you feel up to it join the Jan thread
so sorry to hear about your mam. hope your little bean is bringing you some comfort
I found the 20 week scan in Holles street great. There was no wait and the midwives took loads of time and gave us loads of lovely pics.
It is a bit nerve wrecking and at the start I was analysing the midwives every expression but after a while I started to relax and really enjoyed the experience
hi girls, i am going public in holles street, i have my first appoinment at 14 weeks (currently 12) when I rang to make appointment and asked about scan they said that you are normally scanned at 20 weeks.
For piece of mind, I had a private scan done last week,all looks good, they gave me a letter and said that I could pass it on to hospital when i go to see them.
Now if I do, does that mean they wont give me the 20 week scan? Have a good mind to say nothing just to make sure I get scanned at 20 weeks.
What do ye think?
Sorry to hear about your mam pinklf. Hoping you enjoyed the scan this morning.
Scan went fine and all measurements good (though baby wasn't co-operating for the ear-to-ear one so we had to go and something to drink to get him to move - had a can of coke and then baby had hiccups - it was so funny but got the measurement in the end!).
The staff there were lovely.
Holmum, I have scans with my consultant everytime but I think you need the routine 18-20 week) detailed scan to check everything ok with baby.
Oh I didn't know this but i have using Burt's Bees cocoa butter cream (and didn't use it this morning) and the sonographer asked me was i using biooil or anything for stretch marks. They interfere with the picture quality so my photos are a bit blurry!
Don't care though cause baby is fine!!!
