Post subject: 20 week scan - wow!!
I had my 20 weeks scan on Friday, it was amazing, couldn't believe the detail. Could see the 4 chambers of the heart, and everything. Sorry, just had to gush to someone, hubby and I were just in shock and quite teary about how fantastic it was. And before everyone asks, no we didn't find out the gender!

So relieved everything is ok with our little sprogbump.

Hope everyone else ok.

My partner and i have our 20wk scan in 3wks, she is very scared but an excitment scared as to how much detail you see in this scan....

All our other scans have been fine and when we have been for check ups the baby is very active as they strughle to find the heartbeat once they do the baby moves......... Smile all good mind.

Did anyone else feel scared is this normal?

From what I've gathered (and experienced), being scared is quite normal! I felt a lot better after 12 weeks and hearing the heartbeat, but the nervousness never really goes away unfortunately.

My 20 week scan is actually booked for 22 weeks; I've got to wait until April 21st. It seems like such a long time away!

I think the 12 wks scan make you relax that the risk factor drops whenyou have this scan and check up.... we were dilighted....

I think it must be natural for the mother to worry while carrying the baby so i guess she should just relax and enjoy the pregnancy...

Our 20 week scan is actually booked when my partner is 21wks on the 7th April seems like ages away... but that will soon be here.

Do you know how much detail you see in this scan..?? We had an ultra sound at 13wks as my partner had some slight bleeding and that was amazing then......

The 20 week scan is amazing, but takes sooo much longer than the first one, as they literally measure and check everything!! I saw close ups of my babys face, and feet, and heartbeat etc etc, its amazing! Make sure that you tell them if you dont want to know the sex, incase they say it by accident LOL!

The picture we got was unbelievable, so clear, and our baby seems to have really long legs!
