First scan at 10 weeks
Jun 2, 2008 9:54AM
My first scan is on Tuesday and I will be 10 weeks. When I had my daughter they didn't do it until 12 weeks. Is this normal now to do it earlier?
Has anyone else had a scan at 10 weeks? Was it clear etc

I was booked to have my scan for 11 weeks but i have had a few problems and ended up having a scan at the epu at 8+3 you could see they baby clearly so they cancelled my 11 week scan which i was abit annoyed about becasue that means i have to wait nearly 12 weeks to see my bean again!!!!

Hi i had mine at 10 weeks, baby was tiny and it wasnt that clear as she made me have a wee b4 she could do it (they'd left me waiting in waiting room so long my bladder was taking up the whole screen!!!!) then had my second scan at 18 weeks

Hi hun! We paid for a private scan at 10 weeks and it was really clear! Baby was bouncing about like crazy!! We then had the NHS hospital scan at just over 12 weeks, and again at just over 20 weeks! If you'd prefer your scan to be nearer 12 weeks, then call the hospital/speak to your midwife and get them to change the appointment for you. Don't feel pushed/bullied into anything!! Let us know what you decide.

Thanks for all your replies. Feel a bit better about it now.
I am kind of glad it is early as am very excited about having it. Also going on a hen night on Saturday so will be able to tell my friends and they won't nag me about why I am not drinking. And finally I get married 2 weeks today!! It is a secret and we are only having 20 guests
Lots to look forward to
Keep your fingers crossed for me tomorrow girls

My mw told me that they prefer to do it between 10-13 weeks as they can date you properly. I didnt want my scan that early though so cancelled it and had one at 14 weeks. x

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
