is this your first scan? i had one at 5+4 and it took about 10 minutes if that! but they were just checking it was there and in the right place. the anomoly scan will take longer as they are checking the baby out.

it should take about 15-20 mins.all of babys main organs-heart etc- will be checked.its head and abdomin will be measured.baby will also be checked for any problems. the best bit if you want to know your babys sex you should be able to find out if you want-thats if baby wants you to see!! good luck and enjoy -its AMAZING!x:\)

my scan took a little over 5 mins. They check heart (valves) thigh bone measurement brain, kidneys, stomach, hands and feet, bladder, and then check your fluid, placenta.
Enjoy, it's amazing!

My Scan took 8 and half days! But that's cos my darling son was facing the wrong way and despite jumping up and down like an idiot wouldn't turn round to let them finish anomaly check, so had to go back next week for second half hehe!
