Has anyone ever booked an early private scan?


I know everyone does it but I am in a worry. I've been looking online for a scan that they can do from 6 weeks onwards. I've found a place about a 20 minute drive away from me and it is 50. Do you think they are worth it?

I had bleeding early on in both of my other pregnancies so I'm thinking I'm probably going to have it again and would just like a bit of reasurance. Do you think I'm mad?

Thanks guys. I am going to book it after Christmas so as not to tempt fate and I would think they won't be able to get me in till after new year so I'll be 7 weeks then. I'm such a worrier

Lol I think its an amazing idea, I would totally book at a scan once a week if they only cost me 50, well maybe not every week, but every other week, it would stop me being so paranoid all the time. Goodluck they are amazing, it will be the size of a peanut by then. I have my 12 week scan in an hour, so exciting xx

I had a private scan at 7 weeks (thought I was 9weeks but turned out only 7) and paid 50 too, worth every penny. So glad I did it it was amazing seeing the heartbeat I'm having a Nuchal scan on Christmas eve which I have to pay for as NHS don't them.
