    20 week ultrasound

    ok here goes:

    i have just booked in for my 20 week scan, which i thought was anywhere between 18-20 weeks, anyway i have booked the date, this will be my 3rd scan, going by my first scan i will be 18w 1day, or going by my second scan i will be
    19w 1day...the receptionist told me they like to see you between 19-20 weeks, so my question if i am only 18+1 when i have the scan can they still find out everything there looking for? mind you i rang another scan place and they said they like to see you between 20-22weeks???

    thanks

    i think i had my scan with aricyn at 20.5 weeks, but I know my sister just had her scan at 18 weeks. probably depends on the place you are going to :-)

    With DD1 i had it done at 22 weeks cos thats what my GP asked for

    DD2 i had one done at 18+1 and they couldnt find everything they needed so i had to go back at 21 weeks.

    Yeh when I went for my second scan they said there is a big difference with what they can see between 19 and 20 weeks and to book closer to the 20 week mark. I went in at about 19 weeks 3 days and they were able to do all the diagnostic tests they needed as well as tell the sex of bubs too. It is amazing the detail they actually go into at this one. Looking at the chambers of the heart, measuring the parts of the brain etc. Good luck..maybe change your booking to a bit later. Better than having to pay twice

    I've always heard that it is meant to be between 18 and 20 weeks. My OB told me to book it for that 2 week window as well...

    I hope they can still see what they need to at 18 because I have booked mine for 18+5days and it is in Brisbane so I won't be able to go back for another if they can't see all the bits and pieces they need to...

    Last time I had it dead on 19 weeks and there were no problems.
