We both had a very sleepless night last night worrying about the scan. I don't think we will ever get over being told at our scan the first time round that they could not find a heartbeat. It makes us think that every scan will be bad news - despite having a positive 12 week scan this time round. Our appointment was the first one of the day at 10.30am so we went straight in and thankfully the minute she started scanning she said the magic words 'baby is fine'. She showed us all the different bits and told us the measurements were all looking good. We couldn't believe how much baby has grown. We got about 8 photos in total and even got to see them in 4D and get a couple of 4D photos.
We had the scan at a Babybond clinic which is part of Ultrasound Direct. They offer scans all over the country. As we only wanted to be reassured we went for the cheapest option and booked the quickASSURE scan which is a 15 minute appointment. I would definitely recommend using Babybond as the booking process was easy and the experience was far less clinical than in the hospital. There are more expensive 4D scans available for later on but I don't think we will be having any - as nice as they would be I would rather spend the money on the baby when it is here and we are also very much hoping our anxiety will be greatly reduced after our 20 week scan - fingers crossed.
