Had my "Reassurance" Scan!

Oct 05, 2011 - 6 comments





reassurance scan








pregnancy tracker

I was VERY nervous, as I've had previous miscarriages, so I can't tell you how I felt when the Sonographer smiled at the screen and said, "The baby seems to be wiggling it's bum at us!"
It made me laugh and cry, and Hubby is absolutely over the moon!
I'm officially 9 weeks and 1 day, which is what we thought.  The Baby measures 23mm from crown to rump.  The Sonographer said, "The Baby has a very strong heartbeat." - My little fighter!
I go for the usual 12 week scan on 26th October, so hopefully we will have a clearer scan photo.
AM OVERJOYED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our little Angel :o)

Thank you for your lovely comments!

I know, when the scan started, Baby was facing backwards and wiggling it's bottom, but it turned around, and even though it can't be seen very well on the scan, you can see the arms and a little face!
I'm so relieved after 3 miscarriages, this Baby is here to stay!  Now I start Baby shopping, yay!  :o)

Prayers for you for tomorrow, please let me know how you get on, and post a pic if you can!
Will be sending thoughts and prayers your way for a lovely, healthy Baby!  xxx

i hope they give me pics, my friend went to the same place, and she said they dont give them out because people use them to get free baby items and clothing when they are not even pregnant idk is not with my doctor , it is with a free clinic, a christian place, but i hope they do!!!!!!!!! i want it, but i am sure i will have another one, i will just be happy to see my baby!!!! I will def update hehe....

And that is so cute i cant wait till mine is bigger i am sure it is still quite small at 7 weeks and 4 days!

I bet you cannot wait until your next one, :)

As this scan was only a reassurance scan, they gave me one photo, but when I go for my usual 12 week scan, I get the chance to purchase as many as I want apparently.

I can't believe women would use them to get free baby stuff, what's the point if they don't need it!!  Are you in the USA?  I don't know how things work there.  I'm in the UK, and as far as I know, you always get a photo if you want one.  Never heard of anyone using them to get free stuff tho, lol!  My name is on the scan, so no one else would be able to use it anyway I don't think!

Can't wait to hear your news, and I REALLY hope you get a pic, it makes it more real, doesn't it?!

Can't wait for the 12 week scan.  Baby measured 23mm from head to rump yesterday, but by week 12, it can be anywhere between 2.5 to 3 times the size of week 9, so I'm hoping for a much clearer photo!

Fingers crossed for you!

Love Nat xxx

Awwww, I am SO pleased for you!  3 more weeks and you get your offical 12 week scan!  Bet you're like me....CAN'T WAIT, lol!
Can't believe someone can steal pregnancy tests and then use them to get free stuff, I've never heard anything like that before.  Mind you, the way this country is going, I'm pretty sure it will catch on here!  Bl**dy governemnt!
Can't wait till next Wednesday, but not looking fwd to all the blood tests - Still, it will all be worth it!
Keep me up to date, and hope you're not suffering too many symptoms! xxx
