Because a Dating scan sounds better then a viability scan?
My doctor has told me he is sending me for dating scans to confirm the viability. they were originally for dating as bloods didn't gel with dates Technician believes bloods were wrong and Doc still wants to see a heart beat but isn't too worried any longer.

I haven't had early scans either time, as I've been 100% on dates, and I don't see the point in seeing the baby as it won't change anything.

And don't underestimate peace of mind. After my ectopic I was so anxious during the first weeks of my next pregnancy; seeing bub in the right spot with a healthy heartbeat (which reduces your statistical likelihood of miscarriage to around 5%) left me relaxed, happy, and a different person. So it did change something

nor do I get 12 week scans as I don't want to know really.
But, it's great that the technology is there for those that wish to utilise it.

After four pregnancy losses I'll be in there as often as they'll let me. As PPs have said peace of mind can't be underestimated.

I'll be honest, before my losses I thought u/s were a bit over ordered. But after everything that has happened thank god that exist.
So i will probably have multiple scans if I can be lucky enough to fall pg again. For me it's more than just looking at a cute heart beat. bc now my chances of an ectopic have gone from 1 in 60 to 1 in 10....

I knew my dates but wanted to hear the heartbeat. I couldn't wait until 12 weeks. I'm generally a very anxious person. Plus, with DS2 I was utterly convinced I was having twins and wanted to know for sure ASAP.
I never came across any credible research to suggest there was a problem having one additional scan.
31-07-2012 22:16 #60People are strange! I'm due for my 20 week scan in 2 weeks and I was telling mum the other day that I was in that I really really really want to know that everything is ok in there.. she refreshed my memory that when she had her children you just had to hope for the whole 9 months that everything was fine as scans didnt exist. I feel we are getting really addicted to knowing everything these days.
So I'm with your mum on this one. Yes, I do feel there's an addiction there.
