Cost of dating scan

From 11 weeks the baby’s head, body, arms, legs, stomach, bladder and cord insertion will be checked to rule out a large number of major structural abnormalities including anencephaly, gastroschisis, exomphalos and megacystis.

A clear explanation of the procedure and what has been found during the scan will be given to you by our clinical specialist throughout the pregnancy scan.

For instance, if you have any abdominal scarring or are overweight the picture may not be as clear.

Occasionally, if they can't see what they need to, the sonographer may ask you to have a transvaginal scan, where a very thin probe is used to look at the baby from close to the cervix. You will be able to watch the monitor and see the first pictures of your baby, which is always an extraordinary moment, whether this is your first baby or your fifth.

Should a problem be found, we will make all the necessary arrangements for follow-up care at a suitable time and location of your preference.

There are two routine scans in pregnancy and the first is called the 12-week scan or “dating” scan – this is because one of the things it looks at is the exact gestation, giving a better idea of your baby's estimated due date.

It is reassuring to know everything is as it should be.

I'll never forget one nurse asking me, 'Do you think you could just pop to the loo and let just a little bit out? ’ When it comes to the actual scan you'll lie on your back and then some sticky, clear gel will be rubbed over your abdomen.

The sonographer will tuck some tissues under your clothes so you don't get gel all over them.

You will have had earlier appointments and may have had an early scan if you've had any concerns such as bleeding, but otherwise this is the first time you'll get to see your baby, so it's a real milestone in your pregnancy.

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.

You should then see the black-and-white image of your baby appear on the screen.
