I got one at 10weeks, and was told I wouldn't get another one as Im classed as low risk, so I went out and booked a private one for 14weeks, and I'm booked in for a 3d/4d scan for tomorrow.
we're going public and we'd a mini scan at our 1st hospital apt at 19 wks and then the big scan at 21wks. Was told then that there wouldn't be another scan unless I went overdue.
I suppose it could differ in different parts of the country. I know for Limerick region, its usually 1 about 14 wks and another around the 30 wks mark.
I have had friends who when they went for their checkups in the hospital, if they got a really nice Dr they might sneak another one in.
I'm attending Portlaoise and I had one at about 15 weeks, then had one at 24 weeks. It wasn't mentioned whether I will be getting any more.
I also had a scan at 8 weeks but I don't think this is standard, I think it was due to having a previous m/c.
I'm in the CUMH and I've had a small scan at each appointment. 36 week appt tomorrow so hope they do one then too.
hiya, going public in the coombe and had 12 week scan and was booked in for 22 week scan - will have mini scan at the midwives check ups too afaik
It depends on what hospital you are attending. I'm in holles St and officially they only scan you around 20 weeks. however I had a rough time in the first trimester and have had a number of mini scan since then. It seems to depend on what doctor you get and which room you are brought into.
just wondering for those of you who went or are going public - how many scans did you get and at what stages were they? i got one at 14 weeks and im in for another appointment in a few weeks - just wondering will i be getting a scan then or is it just a check up?
thanks in advance for responces
