    I think im addicted to having scans lol :blush: early in our pregnancy i had some bleeding so had to have 2 early scans, then we had our 13 weeks scan,4 weeks later we had our private gender scan then 4 weeks later(8th of jan)we have got our 21 weeks scan. because of my bmi i have to have a presentation scan at 36 weeks and i know it sounds greedy but when we have been having scans roughly every 4 weeks, it seems like such a long time to wait between 21 and 36 weeks so im trying to talk my oh into going for a 3d scan when i am 29 weeks but he thinks im crackers :shrug: anyone else addicted to scans??:shrug:

    not by choice here but I do enjoy them..they give me peace of mind. :) I had early scans (6week, 8weeks,10/11weeks) because I've had a previous chemical pregnancy and now I see a perinatal specialist to monitor my cervix and I go in about every 2 weeks for transvaginal ultrasound to make sure my cervix doesn't open or shorten. :) I love having so many pictures of my baby, but I hope in the future they don't find out that ultrasounds hurt baby. :)

    I don't think I'm addicted but (like most ladies I guess) I do LOVE them!!! I have had scans at 6, 8, 10, 12, 18 & 20 weeks (had issues in early pg) - no more now (hopefully) which is sad but I feel so much movement now that I don't mind too much - at least I know all is ok (very ok at times, been awake since 5am with all the wiggling and kicking!!)...plus I always have my doppler so I can have a sneaky listen every now and then!!

    I had one at 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 10 weeks, 12 weeks, 14 weeks, 16 weeks. I have one on Monday for my 18 weeks and have them every two weeks now. They take an hour too so I get to see my babies a lot.

    I would love to have a 4D scan but can't afford.

    I like having the scans and seeing the babies, just don't like the gooey jelly and feeling like I am gonna pee my pants!

    Sorry to hear of your loss hun. I agree it's nice being reassured so often...although the first few minutes I am worried until she says they are all fine
