We're on team.... (Edited: Good questions for 20 wk scan) - update Pg 3
I have my 20 week scan tomorrow (yay! ) and I've been meaning to make a list of questions I need to ask. From previous experience, I know I will forget unless I make this list. So can you help remind of stuff you asked or wish you asked at your 20 week scan?
- Gender (doh!)
- Position of placenta
- Is baby positioned optimally i.e. not breach?
- Are my fibroids getting in the way? I have four.
What am I forgetting?
Suggestions so far from the helpful ladies on this forum -
- ask what size the baby is
- ask what the heart rate is
- ask that all the organs are ok
- ask what all the abbreviations on the printed report they give you mean
This is such a good thread! I came away from the 12 week scan kicking myself that I hadn't asked more, but after being told I could ask questions when it was finished (the girl said she couldn't concentrate if she was talking....) my mind then went blank!
I was just saying to the friend who's coming to the 20 week scan with me that I'd put together a list of Qs and she'd have to ask them while I turn into a speechless numpty again! lol
I know I didn't start this thread, but thanks for the suggestions so far. I've noted them down.
The poor tech I had, I asked a million questions and started to feel bad. I asked everything on your list so far, plus I asked about his heart and brain I just had to know those looked absolutely normal. I am still waiting on my doctor to call me back about the actual measurements, so you may want to get those too Good Luck at your scan.
