    Why on earth would anyone care if someone else got a dating scan?? The mind seriously boggles at some of the things people find to be annoyed about on bubhub. If it makes someone feel better then good- how lovely that someone can feel better with a little scan. It is hardly affecting you negatively in anyway??? So who cares?

    I can understand why women get 'dating scans' for peace of mind, especially if they have had a miscarriage.
    This was me too. Knew my dates exactly so the GP never offered me a dating scan and at the time I didn't know that I could ask for one.

    Fortunately my Ob did a scan in his office at 10 weeks but I nearly drove myself (& DH) insane with worrying up until then as my pregnancy symptoms were virtually non-existent.

    I did it because although sure of my dates in the past, the hospital uses their scan dates for their records and for making appointments etc. The earlier a scan, the more accurate, so I wanted to make sure they were working off correct dates.

    I'll be asking for a dating scan even though I know my lmp. I've had 2 previous losses and am absolutely petrified of losing this baby. I know I'll feel alot better once I see the hb.

    Thats cold.

    Actually a scan will prevent "that". I can have a D & C the next day if it looks like I wont miscarry naturally.

    All my miscarriages were missed miscarriages and on one occasion the dead baby was inside me for so long, it resulted in a huge infection that caused scarring in my tubes. If you want to risk your fertility, thats your perogative, but I wont risk my fertility because someone thinks that "thats life".

    I don't get why it's anyone else's concern either. I certainly don't think it's 'strange', as someone on the first page stated (how bizarre?).

    There are bigger things to worry about people! If you don't want an early scan...don't get one?

    ALSO I'm a very very anxious person and I like to know that there is a heartbeat. There is no way I could wait until 12 weeks!
    My sister has something similar, uterus didelphys (was originally misdiagnosed as bicornuate) and needed scans for the same reason...they are different sizes, so they had to ensure baby had implanted on the right side.

    I don't understand what difference it makes whether someone choices to have an early scan or not? Who cares?
    I am only 12 weeks but i've had several scans all ready and it's a good thing i have or i would be an absolute mess of worry.
    A scan may not stop a m/c but if something has gone wrong the sooner you know about it the better imo.

    In my friends case, it was lucky she had a dating scan even when she thought she was only 6 weeks along... turns out she was actually 18 weeks along! She almost fainted lol! She was breastfeeding her first and didnt have any periods come back yet either!
