12 week dating scan happens

You're under no obligation to have these, and they do usually carry a small risk of miscarriage as they are invasive.

After a long first trimester, when you might well have had worries, or even wondered if there can really be a baby in there, it is a great comfort and a huge relief to see your baby on the screen and have the reassurance that everything is OK in there.Before the scan you will be asked to drink a lot of water and have a full bladder, as this puts the uterus in a better position to be scanned.This can be something of an uncomfortable challenge if your sonographer has particularly long waiting times.The sonographer will check your baby's spine for any visible abnormalities.They will also look at the head, limbs, feet, heartbeat and check that the major organs are developing as they should.
