I had my anatomy scan today, part 2 pretty much to check everything over again and check babys heart properly as the chambers couldn't be seen clearly last time. Baby is absolutely fine, which is lovely news =D
Weren't too happy about the scan itself, but hey ho. Had a 50 minute wait (plus the 30 minutes we arrived early), a 10 minute scan then another 20 minute wait as the report got drawn up. Scan itself had some lovely clear images of babys feet + toes, the best side view we've had during any of our scans so far ... but the sonographer didn't take a single photo, so we have nothing to remember it by. She also did nothing but mumble during the scan, meaning we had no idea what she was checking. Happy to have all my growth scans following with my private midwives again rather than the hospital. No waiting around, nicer sonographers and hopefully more photos.
The pregnancy plan hasn't changed. Growth scans every 3 weeks from 28 weeks onwards, low dose of aspirin until 36 weeks, blood pressure + urine check every 2 weeks and induction recommended (but totally refused by me unless there is an actual indicator for it) at 39 weeks.
As for me, I've fought off a nasty cold and my skin is finally starting to clear up after breaking out in spots all over. Baby is nice and active every day now, it's lovely to feel the kicks =)
I'm sorry to hear the experience was less than ideal. Is it worth requesting the records? She has to take photos for the doctors and usually they keep the video as well on file. Or are you just going to wait for your midwife scan?
Nah, I'll just wait. Hoping to get a private scan in 7 weeks or so, which will be 3D and as it's a fun scan it will give me plenty of better photos anyway. I'll also have growth scans every 3 weeks from 28 weeks on so I've still got a lot of chances to get better scan photos.
