Dating scan pregnancy
Please note that 4DFREEVIEW is a free option and if your baby’s position is not favorable for aesthetics on the day, we cannot offer a free rescan for this reason.Need to expose abdomen so ideally wear 2 piece garments i.e trousers or skirt and top.the final date they have to go with will be the one on your MATB1 form in any case, and you wont get that until 20 weeks.i posted this on another board but i need to ask - why do people say that you cant tell you are pregnant if it only 2 week - i KNEW with both of mine i was pregnant had had positive home & Drs tests & when i had my first scan (poss ectopic) i was 2 week gone & had to go back in another 5 week to see if it was viable & alive as there was no heart beat on the scan (turns out the pain was a cyst not ectopic) ANY WAY with DD2 i KNEW to the DAY when i conceived & worked out my 40 weeks as to that date - when i went for my dating scan they gave me a date i think 10 days EARLIER as they said they HAD to go of period dates NOT my "rough calculations" i explained they were not rough we had only "done it" once since DD1 was born & that was IT & i hadnt HAD a period just a post BF bleed - but they insisted my dates put it in my notes as such & even booked me in for my induction which was STILL before MY known due date - i even got it put in my notes that i wasnt compliant when i refused to say i would go for an induction the ONLY reason they wanted me in early is coz my due date said 24th Dec & theres said 14th (or something) - i told them io would be there new years eve day & thats that LOL DD turned up early any way on 7th Dec Yes this happened to me too i went for my scan which should of been 12 weeks,to be told i was only just over 8 weeks,they then put me 19 days back with my due date,my due date would of been 28th aug but they canged it to 14th sept,,,well to them i am 37 6 weeks pregnant at the mo,i have a c-section booked for the 10th sept,which will make me 39 3 so only time will tell if i get to that date or not but the way im feeling i dont think i will,,, They said to me that they used to go by your last bleed date but now say the scan date is more accurate..
Equally if you are a very tall mum and a tall dad, then you will appear further gone than you are. thanx for all your replies, i know its not a major big deal as its only 10 days but I only started a job 2nd july and I have to have worked for 26 weeks min before I can claim MA and I want to start my leave at the earliest point (29 weeks) which I worked out that I wouldnt return after xmas, now its looking like ill have to.
We will continue our course of support for as long as you need us.
If you become concerned about any aspect of your scan, the images and recordings you have taken home or you wish to make a complaint, you can contact the clinic where you had your scan and our staff will discuss any concerns that you may have.
When I was pregnant a m/w said to me that you should take your EDD as falling in the middle of a month of when your baby can be expected, cos it could very easily come 2 weeks early, or 2 weeks late.
I was told that they will change your EDD at 12 week scan if it is out by 7 days or more.At 20 weeks scan, they will only change it if out by 14 days.
