Re: Anatomy Scans Thread

  • So excited that we are hitting/hearing this milestone!

    @GlitterFish hope your scan went well. :)

  • @GlitterFish how far along are you? My 17 week appointment is tomorrow and I'm hoping my doctor will suggest we schedule the A/S sooner rather than later (not too soon obviously)

  • @GlitterFish wow that seems so early, but that's awesome that they got all the measurements and everything looks great!! Fingers are crossed I don't have to wait another agonizing 4 weeks.
    glitterfish-2
  • So cute though. Glad everything looked good and healthy. I have mine on the books for Valentines Day and I am starting to get so anxious just to hear the kindeys heart etc are good.

  • Congrats on the scan! Mine is in several more weeks and I'm looking forward to seeing baby and finding out the sex.

    Are all ultrasound rooms super cold? I want to be prepared for next time; I was freezing last week.

    Mine was not super-cold, but it was also in my regular OB's office with one of those wheel-able machines. Only my stomach was uncovered.
    The tech did warn me however that Monday at 8am is not the best time because the gel warmer gets turned off over the weekend! It was definitely colder than normal!

  • Have suggestions for the anatomy ultrasound? I.e. Full bladder, juice before hand. They have not given me any instructions, as of yet, and it's separate from my obs office so no need for peeing before hand I'm guessing. My appointment is at 7 in the morning so juice or coffee will be an easy one.

  • I'm so excited that some of us are at this point! I have a feeling my Dr. is going to have me wait until 20 weeks, so I will be living vicariously through you until then! @kat0607 we have the same DD so I'll be curious to see when you get yours!

  • Aaaah!!! So jealous @GlitterFish!  Very excited for you and for all the ladies coming up on this awesome milestone!  I'm going to be lurking on this board over the next few weeks because our anatomy scan won't be until March 10th  :(  I'll be almost 21 weeks, but I'll survive.  Best of luck to all of you!

  • @morgarita it honestly depends on the ultrasound machine. Some need the full bladder to push the baby up so they can see the baby and uterus better and some don't. I had one of each - usually they will call you the day before if there are any specific instructions.

  • @GlitterFish  I am glad everything looked good!

    Mine won't be until the end of February (I will be 20 weeks).

  • YAY!!! That is such fun news @GlitterFish very happy to read it. I have my scan next Monday just shy of 17 weeks. On my chart it says anatomy scan...maybe they do it earlier for two? Either way I CANNOT WAIT to find out the sex of baby 2. We know baby 1 is a boy ....I think just knowing will make it so much more real. Right now I don't know who the boy is so it's hard to connect on that level.

    So exciting! My Level 2 (the high risk version of the a/s as I didn't realize it was different before!) is next Wednesday at 18 weeks. Hoping to see the good so we can find the sex out and of course that everything is going well

    That's so funny, mine was a "level 2" but my doctor said there actually is no Level 1 or Level 3! Maybe he was joking?

  • @ThePecks DH being there will be so awesome. My DH was finally able to come to the NT scan and he could not stop smiling after he saw the baby move. It was fantastic. Unfortunately he probably won't be able to do the anatomy scan. Although..... that means I can surprise him and mess with him for the sex.... but he always knows when I'm lying. Hmmm.

    OMG I'm so jealous! Mine isn't even scheduled yet! :(  I have a regular OB appt coming up Feb. 1st (? I think...), and hopefully we'll schedule then.  My practice will likely wait until week 20, so I'm not predicting it will be until the first week of March.  Congrats on the great scan @GlitterFish Totally plan to be stalking all of you on this thread until I get to have mine!

    ETA:  I didn't have the NIPT done, so the AS is the first time we'll (hopefully) find out the sex!  The suspense is torture!

  • Congrats @GlitterFish!

    Mine is Feb 20. I will be so glad to know that things are looking good. It makes me nervous to think about bc you just never know.

    I can't believe we're at this point on our board already!  My AS isn't scheduled yet.  I'll be 20 weeks on March 11, so I think I still have a long wait ahead of me.

  • @GlitterFish So glad your scan went well
    @ktewart Hope your appointment goes well tomorrow.

    Unfortunately I will be the last lady on here to get an anatomy scan. My dr office doesnt do them till 22-24 weeks. I just scheduled mine last thursday for March 28th. I hope all you ladies scans go well in the coming weeks.

  • @morgarita it really depends on the machine and also your body.  My ultrasound clinic wants you to drink 32 ounces of water before your scan finishing it 1 hour prior to the appointment.  For my last a/s I drank less than the recommended amount of water and still had to partially empty my bladder for the 5 seconds they allow twice while waiting.  When I got into the room the tech took one look and said "wow you have a really full bladder". During my NT scan with this pregnancy I had the stomach flu and could barely keep anything down.  I had maybe 1/4 of the water they wanted and still had no problems with the scan.  
  • It is very exciting to finally be at this point! But I am very jealous of everyone who is doing theirs early. I have had mine scheduled for 2 months for Feb 17, I'll be 20w1d. It feels like its taking forever to get here. My friend just text me today to ask how much longer until I find out and I said 3weeks and even she agrees with me that it appears to be going slow.
