Hiya Sarah

No wonder you are excited! :lol:

At 9 weeks your baby is just starting to grow limbs! - You will be able to see the gestatinal sac with your baby inside. The fetal heart will also be visable. It will look like a little flashing light!

The 11 week scan you have been offered is a Nuchal Translucency scan. This scan is done specifically to examine the back of the babies neck. The measurement of this can indicate if your baby has Down Syndrome, which is unlikely so just treat it as another opportunity to see your baby!

I have included my scans at 9+1 and 10+2 weeks so you have an idea of what you may see.

9weeks + 1 Day

10 weeks + 2 Days

Let us know how you get on!
