    Who cares why other women get them? If you don't want one, don't get one. If it provides security for some then that's great. If people just want to see the baby that's awesome too. I didn't know how far along I was because my period is really irregular, I wasn't TTC, and I'm not the keeping records kind of gal. I'm glad I went because my due date estimate was weeks out. Honestly I couldn't give a rats cr@p what other people do.

    Ignorance is bliss but for those who have experienced it first hand its an awful experience.
    So well said, the attitudes of some women on this thread is astounding, yes I'm over sensitive as my scan last week picked up a missed miscarriage so I don't give a rats whether you "understand " or not or "that's life" attitude, it's my life and I can do and deal with it any way I want

    I had a scan at 8 weeks, call it a viability scan or a dating scan, whatever.

    We had one because we fell from our 5th IVF attempt. They do the scans with IVF to make sure that bub is growing properly, is not ectopic and has a HB. And trust me, after going through the stress of multiple IVF cycles the releif you get from knowing that little peanut has a HB is immense.

    Agreed, I don't think the OP meant to be nasty, just attempting to understand. But I've learnt life is shades of grey and so subjective. What might look like willy nilly scans to an outsider might be the life saving detection of a tubal pg or the detection of a missed m/c which needs a d&c, or quite simply, peace of mind to a woman with a history of losses.

    Thanks, I'm taking each day at a time, I'm overly emotional and I'm sure my hormones are all over the place! I go from sad to angry to guilty to numb , my DH has been so supportive and DS makes me smile every minute of the day

    I consider myself lucky that my first loss was a natural and complete m/c. Some of the comments generally, to women suffering losses lacks so much empathy both hear and IRL.

    Very sorry to hear of your loss

    Yeh I was the same - one day at a time. Here if you want to talk.

    I'm sorry but I think this was a really insensitive thing to say. You have dealt with your M/C's in your own way, and I am sorry that you had to go through that but there are a number of women on this forum who are dealing with M/C's and aren't as 'hardened' as you are.

    No-one is suggesting that a dating scan will prevent an M/C but it may allow the women involved to not have to carry a deceased foetus inside them for a few weeks. I know women who have had missed M/C's and it has not been the M/C as such that was most upsetting, it was the fact that they were carrying around the body of their child and they did not know.

    I wanted a 6ish week scan and was disappointed when my doctor didn't offer one (as I knew my dates, I had a calendar for the past 6 months with all the detail). I was very anxious until the 12 week scan where we saw a heartbeat.

    I can understand why women get 'dating scans' for peace of mind, especially if they have had a miscarriage.
