    That's simply not true. If you have a baby in your tube it will prevent a rupture. Knowing it's there and in which tube means either surgery or the methotrexate shot can be given.

    It's not really for you to define security and why women have dating or viability scans anyway.

    I had one with ds I had no idea of my last period, I had negative preg tests, dr referred me to gyno because she thought there was something so I was actually 10 wks along ... But had no idea at all bc I had just had surgery too.

    Dd wasn't necessary we knew the night we conceived and same with this preg.

    What a really harsh judgement ... I am 19 wks ATM ... I am still not feeling movement ... I still don't "feel" pregnant (apart from being sick) ... I can't wait for scan next week to make sure everything is ok.

    I don't understand why it's anyone else's business or why anyone cares who gets scans or why. No one needs to "understand" why someone chooses to get a scan & TBH I think it's odd that it's been raised as something that needs to be understood. Who really cares? As for claiming on Medicare? There are way more things putting a stain on our healthcare system & being subsidised heavily through Medicare. Obesity and smoking related illnesses being two examples. Someone claiming a measly amount for an ultrasound is a blip on the Medicare radar.

    That's the thing though - too much exposure. The research shows that the 2-3 (dating, NT, 20 week) scans ordered by Dr's to check growth are fine. It's the ones that aren't required or the "let's just have a look" scans every X weeks/days at an OB's office that can be too many.

    To answer the OP's question, we lost our first. Dating scan at 6 weeks was fine, but at the 12 week scan a Blighted Ovum was found and baby had died just after 7 weeks. So I had a dead baby inside me for nearly 5 weeks with no signs of miscarriage.

    So with DS and DD, the dating scan was put off until 8 weeks to check all was OK. Such a relief to see live little babies on that screen.

    I had one because I had no idea how far along I was, having only been off the pill a short time. Also, why wait until 12 weeks to see if your little bubba is safe and healthy

    I'm naughty, even if I know exactly how far along I am next time, I'll fib and say I don't so I can check everything's ok.

    I think all you judgy mcjudgys should probably keep your 'medical advise' to yourselfs - walk around with a dead fetus inside you for a couple of weeks and your opinion might change the next time you fall pregnant.

    Ignorance is bliss but for those who have experienced it first hand its an awful experience.

    Absolutely.

    And, as with almost all topics that get thrown around in the various Mummy wars... if you don't like it, don't do it!

    I had regular scans with DD because I bled a lot, for weeks and weeks.

    Having a dating scan early on was the most accurate out of my three pregnancies in regards to EDD.

    DS1 and 2 were apparently 10 days over according to the 18week scan, then DD came a day after her EDD taken from the dating scan.

    I believe it's an extremely personal choice and one that shouldn't be open to ridicule.

    I know the OP well enough to know that this thread wasn't started to attack people (cause she's lovely), but some of the other comments in here are extremely judgmental
