    Hi there, I'm still in tri 1 but have a quick question. I want to take my mum with me when I go for my 20 week scan, if my partner is not working he will want to come too of course. Do you think this would be OK? Did any of you take more than 1 person with you? Tia xxx

    It probably depends on your hospital, I'd just give them a ring to find out for sure x

    My hospital allows up to 2 people at scans. It depends on your hospitals policy xx

    Same as above. Were allowed 2 people to come to the scan but depends on hospital. I had my mum and OH at my 20 week scan in my first pregnancy x

    Mine is strictly one person (in addition to you!). The room was tiny.

    Like the others, it really depends on the hospital.
    My hospital state only me & 1 other. We didn't take anybody else to our 20 week scan but to our 12 week one we had my mum his dad and my sil and they were allowed in all together once we had seen for ourselves baby was there and then left again after a couple of minutes. I guess it depends also if you've got a nice sonographer too!

    My hospital is strictly 1 person only.

    The 20 week scan is a long one though, so even if your hospital limits you to 1 they might let you swap that person part way through if both would like a chance to see.
