    Hi ladies hope you all had a great xmas x

    I have got my scan on Thursday and I was wondering how much they cost per pic?

    It says to bring the correct money but doesn't say how much that is :eh:

    I'm from south wales so not sure if it costs different in each area, could you girls let me know how much yours were

    thanks x

    Ours was £6 for 3 photos and we needed to give the money to the lady at reception to get a ticket, but as it was Christmas I think they were feeling generous as we got given 5 photos, all different :) xxx

    I live in Derby and it's £4 per photo, and we paid the sonographer and she got us change if we needed it. Reading all the others here I think we were ripped off!!! lol

    Oh my goodness i'm shocked you've all been charged so much!! We got photos from our first 4 scans at Gloucester hospital and never paid a penny (although in the waiting area the sign said £5 per set) We got between 2 and 5 pictures. Then for the 20 week scan we went to a smaller local hospital and the sonographer printed off 10 photos and asked us to pay a £5 charge for the set.

    im glad i moved now!
    £6 per photo, i hope this area is better!

    £6 would still be worth it though! i think thats why they charge so much, i dont think i could go to a scan and say 'oh no, too expensive, i just wont have a photo'

    Wow - i feel really lucky now - our local hospital just has the donation box - i think i put about £3 in the first time - you get given a printout of 3 pics - i had two lots cos LO wasnt in the right place for measurements, so i had to go for a walk and come back. Then went to big city hosp 2 days later (lil bugger still wouldnt move) and got another 3 pics - no where asking for payment or donations.

    At my 20 week (these pics were terrible!!)) - i forgot change - but was given 5 pics on the print out.

    Ours has a sign saying its £5 but at my 10 week scan I got 2 pics and didnt get asked for any money! There is a ticket machine in the waiting room so I will make sure I take some change for my scan next week just in case they charge me for the 12 week scan. Hopefully £5 will get me more than one pic!!
