    My doctor sent me for a dating scan, and good thing too, considering based off my HCG levels, I was approx. 12 - 14 weeks, but I was really only 7!
    Not to mention that not all the MTB on bubhub were TTC.

    Regardless, I'd do anything to see bubs little heart beat powering away, just so I know it is okay. So I don't blame any mother for wanting a check!

    Thanks jakois and delirium. I did not start this thread to be rude. I simply asked why someone would have a dating scan when they know their exact dates. I've seen heaps of people on here say exactly how far along they are, but still go for a "dating" scan so was just wondering what other reasons there were.

    I haven't said I am annoyed?

    And there are risks to ultrasounds, the American Medical Board actually recommends against ultrasounds for determining age of baby, sex, multiple pregnancy and position of baby.

    I think people use the term "dating.scan" as a generalisation really, just meaning an early scan done to check dates, bubs is in uterus not a tube, single or multiple preg, heartbeat present, and the list goes on. I think its more of a terminology issue (although dates ARE confirmed at every scan so maybe theyre all dating scans?what? Ok im just being silly now, i get too literal when im tired)

    Im sure the op didnt mean any offence. Hope everyone is having a happy stress free day. Yay for friday tomoro xo

    Are u quoting the article that quotes another article that quotes another article? Something written in 2009? If u look it up you'll see that in 2012 the American Medical Association has adopted the stance of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine that ultrasound technology is perfectly safe. That's the thing about the net, dig hard enough and u find enough "proof" for both sides of an argument.

    Regardless, it's no ones concern why any woman chooses to have early scans - whether for dating or any other reason. Why can't u just be supportive of other women and their choices?

    To confirm it was only one baby.

    I have a family history of twins.

    Ehm I would like to know as early as possible if my baby's position isn't favourable. Having no ultrasound to determine early that I am having an ectopic pregnancy, can lead to serious complications and even death. So I'd rather have an early U/S to check if everything is ok, than wait until it's too late.

    Also, I would like to know if I am having twins so that I am not unpleasantly surprised and unexpectedly have to blow a budget on buying everything double.

    But that's just me.

    With my misscarriages circumstances an ultrasound can affect the outcome!

    I had a low implantation which will or will not result in misscarriage.

    Things that affect the outcome include strenuous activity (by ob's orders i had to take it 'very easy')

    I still lost my bub but by knowing i increased my chance of not loosing bub.

    MY ob does not encourage multiple unnecessary scans as he believes there is no proof for or against the safety of scans (and thus prefers to use caution)

    He gave me early u/s request with my ds as a direct result of my previous loss.
