Ultrasound dating scan young black dating
Your sonographer will be able to answer any questions you have on the day and will talk you through the process.Before you go for your scan, you’ll be asked to drink lots of water and arrive with a full bladder.Its tricky though - the dating scan goes by 'average baby sizes', and so if you are a petite mum with a diddy dad, then you are probably below average measurements, and this could change the dates.
The factors from you and the babe will denote the birth size enormously, but not in early pregnancy. Hiya, I had a major date difference between my lmp and my dating scan...owing to irregular bleeding which 'must' of been a period but was very different to my actual periods! Because of this I questioned how early you can get a positive result from a 'normal' cheap preg test..to be told sometimes you can get this at 2-3weeks preg.
2) if they go off the scan date and I go overdue, its possible I could potentially go nearly 4 weeks overdue!! hi i does seem like they did your scan a little early i had mine at 13 weeks and i was told i was a head of my dates making me 14 weeks they changed my due date i had an early scan also when i was 10 weeks (i had some spotting)and was told i was only 9 weeks so i could be they scaned you to early but they normaly are pretty accurate i wouldnt worry to much it might change at your next scan i also had this happen in my last pregnany i was put a week back then to i know what you mean though with this one my dates now don't add up because it puts my conception around the time i was on my period very confusing its only ever a guideline hope that helps liz xxx I was 2 weeks out too, I went for my 12 week scan to be told I was only 10 weeks and to come back in 2 weeks!! i was out back 10 days but have to say that my periods are pretty irregular, though noone bothered to ask me that when they whipped out their little round conception to birth calculators so i actually have more trust in the sonographers myself.....
surely they should err on the side of caution and go with my earlier date, A similar thing happened with my 1st DS and he was born 7 weeks prem, or was he?? This seemed biologically impossible, I accepted their date but in my head I was convinced I was right, I set my heart on my date, and this was a bad idea as it came and went and I was induced 5 days over their predictions (I had a high blood pressure otherwise I would have preferred to go by myself ) So, go figure!! as to letting work know, you can do this , just tell them that the due date is not yet confirmed - it's not likely to change by several months is it?
If there’s any cause for concern then you may be recommended to have the scan before the 12-week mark, and your midwife will be able to assist you with this.
The nuchal test is usually done at the same time and done in conjunction with a blood test.Your scan will be booked for you by your doctor or midwife and will usually take place at your local hospital’s ultrasound department.
