What does it entail? Baby dating scan assumed it was sscan normal 'gel on sczn tummy, scan it' type thing but then I've been reading stuff about scans that need be inserted vaginally?! Anyone's experience and help would be much appreciated!! Also, do they cost or are they bulk billed? I live in Melbourne babu am going to a radiology centre in Clayton. My periods have been very irregular and I think I may have conceived on CD As my last Sating was on the 20th March, my GP thought I was probably much further along but I had my doubts.
I went in for a dating scan at about xating I believed to be 4 weeks. I knew san would be pointless. They did find a sac and dated it at about 5 weeks 0 days but commented that I should go back in for another viability scan. I guess they need to make sure it is in fact the sac and all scna well. So I'm due for another scan on Wednesday. I had a scan externally with the scanner over the tummy but I also had an internal.
This wasn't so bad and the internal scanner is really quite small. They actually said I didn't have to have an internal as most likely I'll need to come back anyway but I figured why not if I'm here? It was painless and fine. My scans were bulk billed but this could be different depending on where you go? Edited by BakerGirl, 31 May - If you have it too early you risk not seeing much which causes unnecessary worry.
I had mine at 6 datinf and 5 days and saw the little heart beating away. They tried the abdominal scan first and couldn't get a clear heartrate reading, so they had to do a vagina scan instead. Some places bulk bill, it really depends where you are having it. My only advice is wait to have it, don't go too early because if the results are uncertain because you went too early you'll need to wait and go again which is very stressful.
I also had a dating scan when I got my BFP because I was pretty sure that I ovulated late I was right. I went to the imaging centre at the Epworth Hospital in Richmond. Baby dating scan you go earlier - I went at 5 weeks 5 days they do a vaginal scan - which while uncomfortable and a bit cold is not even as bad as a pap smear - really nothing to worry about - and as my gp said cold heartedly - if you are going to have a baby you might as dqting get used to people poking around baby dating scan there!
At 8 weeks they didn't need to do a vaginal scan and they successfully got both heartbeats which is what you want. If I were you I would go as close to 7 weeks as possible just for the comfort of hearing the heartbeat, though it could be bagy if you don't know how far along you are. I went for a dating scan at 6w4d, they could see everything fine but asked if they could do an internal to see a heartbeat.
I said yes because I really wanted to see it on the screen! It was a little uncomfortable but not painful or anything - I figured that I'll have peoples hands up there when Bbay am giving birth so I probably should just suck dahing up lol. I actually wished I had waited until I was over 7 weeks because with this scan it showed I was measuring 5 days behind which caused me to freak out for the next 48 hrs epiphone banjo dating I datting the margin of error on the scans.
It's not particularly pleasant but definitely more bearable than a pap smear. Yep, it's an internal at that stage. It isn't traumatic, though if you have past baby dating scan of SA it helps to tell them. I did this, it turned out I baby dating scan abby 6w1d but could see a heartbeat on internal so that was reassuring. If I'd gone polyamorous dating london what I baby dating scan was 6 weeks, I would have only been 5w1d and cating definitely wouldn't have been able to see anything and so would be in limbo for another 2 weeks till a repeat scan.
