i had one at 29 weeks as they had picked up notching at my 20 (21) week scan, but at the 29 weeks scan bubba was on the large side so i ended up having a scan again at 34 weeks, was diagnosed with GD a week later and had a few scans done on the portable scanner whe in for appointments
i remember saying to dh at the time, i dont know how i got through the last 2 pregs with no scans after 20 weeks
I had growth scans every 2 weeks from 29 weeks and i also had scans twice a week to check on the level of water around him and to check blood flow from placenta. I also had a 4d scan around 28 weeks. I would have done anything to have a normal pregnancy and not spent the last 8 weeks of my pregnancy at the hospital most days
I was diagnosed with OC at 34 weeks so I had two scans in between 34 and 37 weeks to check the wellbeing of the baby, look for any growth restriction and check the cord blood flow. Thankfully all was well
I've been told by my MW I'll get extra scans this time, at 28 weeks and 30-odd weeks but I'm not sure if I will.
I had a 12 week dating scan (which was actually at about 9 weeks), then a 16 week and 20 week one with additional cervical scans to check if my cervix was shortening at all. Also got another at 32 weeks for same reason.
I know what you mean about it seeming like other people have loads, but the chances are it's because something needs to be monitored. Sounds like you have a lovely healthy baby growing inside you, and it feels like a long wait, but you'll soon get to see
your LO in the flesh. Better than any scan
