    Dont worry hun I'm sure everything will be fine.

    They dont do alot to be fair, just make sure all arms & legs are present, theres a h/b & take a few measurements

    Don't worry hun it'll be fine. Make sure you drink tons of fluid before you go and this will get you a clearer pic hopefully. They just check the crown-rump length and that the heartbeat is pumping away! it's so lovely just enjoy it and try not to worry! we have our 20 wk scan on fri! let us know how you get on x

    Ah, then you know that things are going to be ok :hugs:

    (My first scan was at 7.5 weeks - too early to use a doppler - so I certainly "held my breath" when they started the scan.... I got a doppler and picked up the heartbeat before 11 weeks and that has given me a lot of reassurance since :cloud9: ).

    You know that you baby is there and heart is beating away :happydance:. So (try to) put the nerves aside and look forward to meeting your baby with excitment - it is an AMAZING experience :cloud9:

    Hope that you have a fantastic scan :hugs:

    You'll be fine Hun. I had length of baby measured, nuchal screening(neck measurement) and then I had my bloods taken.

    I know its easy to worry.....I am ALWAYS worrying. Even more so now I'm further along.

    I was so worried I couldn't sleep before both of my scans. The dating scan was pretty quick. The sonographer just checked there was only one baby in there, did some measurements and showed me the heartbeat. The worst bit was having such a full bladder, it was soooo uncomfortable I felt like I'd wet myself but worth it to get a clear picture. Good luck with it :).
