Has anyone had any problems at their 20 week ultrasound?
Sorry if this is a upsetting thread and if you dont feel like answering of course dont!
My friends all seemed to have problems at their 20 week scans, ranging from cysts on their babys to kidney problems...
With my scan less than 6 days away im getting really scared.... I know I cant change anything but...
I would like to know (if u dont mind telling) if you had any problems at your scan or if all was fine! and if their was problems wat was the resolution to those? Im sorry again if this thread is offensive or too emotional for some people.
I was told bubs had a little extra fluid in kidneys, but not to worry as it's actually quite common and will probably rectify itself before te big arrival. They will send for baby for scans of it's kidneys though after he/she's born.
my advice would be not to worry too much hun - it's true that we only ever hear the "bad" stories when talking to people - very rarely have someone say "oooh 20wk scan? mine was fab - so great to see bubs in detail" it's usuallY "omg 20 wk scan? it's awful - they told me this was wrong/that was wrong" etc etc.....
enjoy it hun no matter what comes of it - if all is perfect then YAY!! but if something is even just a little irregular, they will tell you and if treatment at this stage is possible, theywill do everything they can to make sure you and baby are great!
My scan went well except they said the photos were a little blurry because I had rubbed cream on my belly, I had no idea and because it's all sound waves it gets blurry.
I also have to go back on Dec. 17th, they couldn't see the babies heart very well but everything else was normal.
The only problems I had were they couldn't see everything they needed to due to the extra flab on my tummy LOL And then the next time I went back bubs was facing my back so they couldn't see anything again! Apparently we have a camera shy baby!!
I'm sure your 20 week ultrasound will go great Just sit back and enjoy it as it goes by really fast!
ours went really well too - bubs was even ahead of his dates by 3 days! The only "problem" was that he was lying at such an awkward angle (head right down low and basically upside down!) that our photo was a bit rubbish - but as i said, he was perfectly fine!
So go with confidence.
I was sick with worry for my 12 weeks scan (which turned out to be fine!), so try to relax hun - its your pregnancy, not anyone elses - so if others have problems, it doesnt mean yours will!!!
My 20wk scan was great, got to see bubba so clearly and everyhting was fine, think ive got a poser in the making! Try not to worry, i really enjoyed my scan as im sure so many others have. I just wish i could have scans every week just to see bubba!
