16 weeks pregnant - all you need to know

Im having my first baby too and being me I just could not wait to see if I was having twins or not so we had our first scan at 10 weeks which made me and hubby drop a few tears. We are going public and if you are public, semi private or private your first hospital scan will be 22 weeks. If your public like me then you only get one scan if everything is okay! As soon as I found out I was pregnant I booked a scan for 10 weeks with a private scan clinic in Dublin on wicklow st.

The guy doing it was so nice and gave us loads of pics and a dvd of the entire scan!

We have one of the baby waiving at us! He gave us an estimated due date of the 20th of December. Last week we had our first and only hospital scan when I was 20 weeks 4 days.

We were actually dissapointed with the scan because the quality of the pics were awful compared to the private clinic BUT the purpose of this scan was to make sure the baby was healthy and thank God all is well so far! What surprised us was how snotty the nurse was about the private scan. She told us that they would not have given us the correct due dates and she would not trust their judgement but as it turns out the private dates were spot on!

Also we were hoping to find out the sex of the baby at the hospital scan but she told us she could not tell. We have booked in another scan with the private scan clinic for 28 weeks and this time its a 3d one! You must be logged in to reply to this topic.

Nodrog New Zealand Total posts: It seems pretty unlikely that you would ovulate 3 weeks late! My midwife said any scans after 12 weeks aren't accurate as by then the genetic differences will have started to show eg I'm 5 ft 9 and DH is 6 ft 3 so our baby is likely to be bigger than someone who is 5 ft 2 with a partner of 5 ft 9 IYKWIM.

With my current pregnancy I knew my LMP date but didn't get a positive test until over a week after AF was due, it turned out that I ovulated a week late. But as I said earlier it is pretty unlikely that you would have ovulated 3 weeks late without noticing as that is a week after your AF should have shown up.

Two bouncy boys New Zealand Total posts: No as acurate but neither is going off the date of your LMP With it so far out they will probably go off the new date. I know the exact date of my last LMP but I know I wasnt preg just opver 2 weeks ago but if im preg now im on day 68 of my cycle witch would make me like 8 - 10 weeks pregnant when I would really be no more then 5 weeks. With my last pregnancy I knew the dates of my LMP and went for a dating scan which showed a 4 week difference in dates.

It turned out that AF had just not arrived the previous month so my LMP was actually 6 weeks prior to her being conceived making a 4 week variance if that makes sense? I have been told typically scans can be up to 10 days out either way especially later in pregnancy so i'd so maybe you are due somewhere in the middle?

Maybe around the 18 week mark? Also did it show on your 12 week scan?

Posted Sunday 06 March I did not have a 12 week scan This is my first scan. The sonographer actually said that my GP was naughty, and that everyone should have a dating scan regardless of knowing their lmp dates etc. As for my previous babies, they were both small at 7lb8 and 7lb5, so I'm not expecting anything huge anyway.

Im just wondering if anyone knows if the scans actually take into account the 2 weeks PRIOR to conception included in the 40 weeks duration They do factor in the 2 weeks. In NZ it is quite unusual to have a dating scan, while in OZ it seems to be the norm.
