    Got my scan today, Im really quite nervous about it. One thing that is really bothering me is that it says on the information to drink a pint of water 1 hour before the scan - as if i am going to be able to hold on without peeing for that long!

    Really hoping everything is ok - we have seen the babies heart beat very early on so thats positive but still cant get the niggling feeling out of my mind that something may be wrong, oh well not long to go until we find out.

    good luck i am sure everything will be perfect but it is still normal to be scared. It is the most amazing thing though seeing your baby for the first time- enjoy! :D :D

    Good luck with it :) I"m sure all will be fine. Most important thing people keep telling me is if you still feel pregnant then you are! I sometimes wonder how its going for me and baby, but I still have sore boobs, pee lots and a few other things so figure it must be going as it needs to.

    And re the water thing, I only drank mine about 20 minutes before and it was fine. We got to the hospital at 2.35pm, for a 3pm appointment and the person before us had not turned up so they saw me at 2.40pm and I'd only drank the last mouthful at 2.20pm. My bladder was well and truly full and everything showed up lovely and clear on the scan. So don't worry too much about glugging it a whole hour before. I drank extra though, almost 750mls :roll: over about 10 minutes.

    Good luck, and I know how you feel on the full bladder bit.

    I had a nurse ask me if I wanted to go let a 'bit' out!!!!!!!! As if that would be possible!!!!

    Yes it pushes all the right bits forward to make it easier to scan - if its an internal its not a great idea to be full though!

    Scan went well and everything is fine. We decided not to have the test for Downs Syndrome but the male (i know, certainly wasn't expecting a man!) sonographer said everything looked well.

    Baby was very very active! Feel a lot happier now and going to be able to relax, thanks ladies for all your support x

    Yeah, when you fill your bladder, it pushes your womb forward and pushes other organs out the way. Otherwise it is too low down in the pelvis.

    - --------

    Congrats on a lovely scan! Now you can relax a little and enjoy :)

    I had a male doc do my 12 week scan and didn't even think about it being odd :lol:
