    I am private, and have a quick look at bubs whenever I'm at my OBs office but i wouldn't classify it as "a scan" like the 6, 12 & 20 wk where you actually have go to a sono.

    Alittleray is your 16 week scan at a proper ultrasound place? Maybe you get more scans with twins?

    Gypsychild, my 16 week scan was to be at Ultrasound place, but due to cost, I was happy to do in Ob's rooms. Anytime an ultrasound machine is used it is medically classified as a 'scan'. There are the standard pregnancy scans which are done at a sonographers - Dating, NT and Anomaly, but for ladies like myself that are high risk due to twins and having lost so many babies both in 1st and 2nd trimester, a High Risk Ob is usually more diligent with the scans, and checks regularly to make sure all is ok... usually every two weeks from 16 to 24 weeks, then four weekly. For those that have been lucky enough not to have gone through numerous losses, the frequent scans will not be suggested, unless you specifically ask, as there is no need for the close monitoring. So a 16 week scan is not something all pregnant women will do, just some of the high risk ones dependent on history.

    Interesting. I'm high risk and my OB isn't even worrying about a 16w appt let alone scan lol. I'm satisfied though lol. Unless I have another bleed I'm happy to wait until my 20w appt :-)

    Congratulations @gypsychild & @Hopeful37. It must be boy season we are having one too.

    as for throwing out syringes, pharmacies are obliged to take them back for free to destroy.
    @Alittleray how disappointing! Can they not repeat the nipt?

    Just reading about the 16w scan and why some have and some don't... I'm classed as high risk due to a blood clotting disorder which can affect babies growth and my placenta... We have appointments every 4 weeks up till 20 weeks then we go to 3 weekly appointments and from 32 weeks it's fortnightly... I've also been told they won't let me go full term as higher risk of problems the further I go along... I only pay for 5 scans in the pregnancy and The scans are at my OB's office which is part of the fetal imagining specialist here in Perth. We obviously would of much preferred not to be classed as high risk but also know that we have to be monitored closely so the baby is growing and doing what it should do...
    So exciting you all have found out what your having... Our baby wouldn't turn the right way to find out for sure what it is... They gave us an indication but we're just waiting till the 20w scan to find out for sure we also didn't end up doing the harmony test as was told it wasn't needed by our OB... Which after the cost of IVF and OB fees we were happy to save some cash

    I've lost 8 babies in the last 4 years so my Ob will not let me go from 12 weeks to 20 weeks unmonitored, nor would I want to. Everyone's case is unique and a a scan at 16 weeks is in the middle of that long stretch between the 12 week NT scan and 20 week Anomaly scan. I also had one at 14 weeks, but a scan at any week whether in the Ob's rooms or with a Sonographer (aside from the standard scans) may or may not be done dependent on each individual's history or pregnancy status. Lots of Obs will do scans in their rooms when you visit....if you are lucky, they will allow you to visit for a scan at any stage if you are worried or concerned.

    NORgirl,
    I was given the option of repeating bloods for the Harmony test, but at that point I had received the combined bloods and NT results which looked really good, and the Sonographer/Ob said he was 80% certain one of the twins was a girl, so we took a refund instead and saved the money.

    ttc1981 is your blood clotting disorder due to the MTHFR mutation with those lovely Clexane injections?
