    Had my scan today 18wks6days. Was sooo excited got in all ready to get scanned and she said ' oh ur only 18 weeks 6days ' i cant scan u until ur at least 19 weeks. Why on earth did they give me this appointment? I was gutted i was made to feel like it was my mistake. I just didnt question it as i heard my midwife say 18-21 weeks is fine.

    Anyways we got a quick scan, but she couldnt tell us if everything was ok until im at least 19! Weeks so we r going bk next week. I felt like she couldnt be bothered.

    My little baba has its head very low in my pelvis didnt want to show its face either was as if he could sense her haha!

    Sorry this is a rant just feel a bit defalted today :-( x

    How wonderful that you get to see little baba again though! Sorry the lady wasn't very sympathetic, it can put a dampener on it when you don't get a nice sonographer. I wonder if they even realise the massive effect their attitude has on a mummy to be xx

    Chin up, keep positive and next time will be so much better :hug: x

    So they couldn't do it for the sake of one day? That's ridiculous and they never should have given you today as your appointment then if that was going to be the case

    Seriously you were only 1 day off? That's so daft! Totally get that you're feeling deflated but hopefully you'll get someone nice next week x
