Aww yay I honestly figured they would do it for you! How can they possibly say no! I hope you find out :) and I hope all goes well for your father! Stay strong <3
Thanks guys! My midwife decided she would do it 2 weeks early for me(:
sorry to hear about your dad! I doubt the hospital will change your scan date or give you an extra scan before the 20 week one however you could book a private scan. I booked a private scan for 16 weeks 1 day, it cost me £79 and I found out I was having a girl. The hospital also confirmed at the 20 week scan that it was a girl too :) so you could look into booking one privately, I think that's the best idea :)
I am only 16 weeks and I plan on going to stork vision before my 20 weeks. idk if there is one near you but I think they can tell on their 3d 4d scans as early as 15wks.
Ask for a blood test I'm not sure how long it takes though, and also check with your insurance to see if it'll cover a 3D. I hope you find out! So sorry about your father
The only way I know for you to find out what it is this early , is if you get a 3d scan because a regular scan isn't most accurate until 18-20 weeks. The only problem is if you have insurance they aren't gonna cover the 3d scan. But it's best if you discuss all of this with your doctor first.
You can pay companies to do it for you if your doctor won't. There are outside places and the cost depends on the company, but I think a lot of them are like $60-$80. I'm so, so sorry about your father.
