For this scan I was determined to not have such a full bladder so I could enjoy it more than my 12 week scan. I did well but still really needed to empty my bladder as soon as we got to the hospital, I let myself go to the toilet and then drank loads while we were waiting to have the scan and this seemed to work.
The scan lasted around 20-30 minutes and during that time we got to see everything. Her head, eyes, nose and lips (which totally looked like mine!) Her arms, legs, stomach, kidneys, spine and heart. The scan was in so much detail we could see each of the four chambers of her heart! It was amazing! We also found out the gender as she gave us a nice clear shot of between her legs. Mark said as soon as we found out we were expecting that she was a girl. He was so confident he actually bought a dress when I was 7 weeks!! She was moving and wriggling around a lot and the lady said that she was a right poser as she had both her hands up near her face.
|19 Weeks 4 Days|
I cried the whole way through the scan as it was so emotional to actually see all her features and that she looked like a real baby!
I really hope that we can pay for 3D/4D scan but they are quite expensive so i'm not sure we will be getting one yet but I would love to have one around 30/32 weeks! With even more detail i'd probably be an emotional wreck so maybe it's not a good idea, lol!
Have you had a 3D/4D scan? Was it worth it?
