    I have my 20 week scan on Thursday and I'm just so excited I could burst. It's all I can think about and I've been counting down the days for 3 weeks (which actually made it go slower lol). I can't sleep, I can't conccentrate at work, I can't wait to see my baby and find out the sex and make sure he/she is ok etc. Is anyone else as excited as this or am I OTT about it all??!!

    Mine still seems a long way off yet, but I am determined to find out the sex and hope they will tell me.

    I'm not as nervous this time, as I have heard the heart beat and my bump seems to be growing every day now so I am not actively worrying that something might be wrong like I was with the 12 weeks scan.

    The bit I am really looking forward to is going out on a spending spree.

    We got quite a lot of vouchers for our wedding and we talked at the weekend about spending a far amount of it on baby stuff!!! :D :D So we can spend spend spend without it costing us anything!!!!! Thats what I am really looking forward to!

    My scan is on the 23rd September. Blimey! Thats a month today! Its getting closer than I thought!

    I have a scan every two weeks because of my cervix and my next one is friday. Last time the baby was in a funny position and they weren't sure of the sex. They're going to try again on Friday and if we find out Saturday will be our first shopping day. I'm very excited and finding that work is going very slowly today.

    Sarah - our scan is also on 23rd September!

    How far past 20 wks will everyone be when they have their "20wk"scan? Only reason I'm asking is because where we live we don't get a 20wk scan on the NHS so we're having to pay for a private scan so I would prefer to book it for the right time (I'll be 20 +3 if we keep the scan on 23rd Sept)

    Thanks

    Lucy

    I have my scan tomorrow and as you can see I will be 20 weeks 3 days! Cant wait to see how much its changed. I surprised you dont get a 20 week scan since its the one thats meant to check everythings all there and in the right place etc. Funny how it varies from place to place

    I have my 3D scan tomorrow, and we'll be finding out if it's a boy or a girl!

    I'm a little nervous, but very excited too, I just hope everythings OK.

    Layla - yeah we were also really surprised we don't get a 20wk scan automatically. My Midwife said people only get them when the obstetrician has referred them due to problems (I'm not sure what she meant by this - for instance if the results of the 16 wk blood checks showed a higher risk etc). I've got my 16 wk bloods on Thursday and so I'm definately going to ask again.

    Can't wait to see all of your scan pics!
