How long does the dating scan take

Published: 27.07.2017

I don't think I was even at the hospital an hour when I had my first scan! I'm booked in for my first scan 12wk on Monday 24th June -and we've been waiting MY choice! My scan on its own took 25 minutes as baby wouldnt behave.

These pregnancy scans pose no risk at all to either you or your baby. That was one week in the post for the all clear, or after three days by phone if there was an issue. Reason I ask is because my husband is away the following week with work, and I'm a bit scared to get the results when I'm on my own and he's away If it's bad news, I want him with me, not in a different country.

How long does the ultrasound scan take?

Hi, you get the routine 12w scan results there and then if you have opted for extra tests then I think they send them through the post??? I had bloods taken for Downs instead of the scan because I wasnt as far gone as I thought I was They will also look at the head, limbs, feet, heartbeat and check that the major organs are developing as they should. Wherei had scan they said if a concern they will call within I think 72 hrs and if not you'll get a letter within 5 days xx.

      Will eating soy boost your fertility? I had a long appointment with the midwife and consultant due to multiple risk factors.

      I then had to go and take a ticket and wait in the same waiting room as anyone having blood tests for anything. You may also be offered a nuchal translucency test at this appointment.

      About 15 minutes maybe, but it depends if you go in on time.
