12 week dating scan full bladder

Enlarged bladders can be a sign of a number of problems, but as I said, can be nothing.

Depending on the outcome next week, they may offer you a cvs/amnio.

I have heard bad things about enlarged bladders, BUT all could be fine.

The scan gives your doctor a very close look inside your womb to examine your baby’s vital organs, brain development, the health of her heart and much more.

The exam runs between 20 and 45 minutes (depending on how many buns you’re baking) and for parents, it is typically the most in-depth, mind-blowing ultrasound experience of the entire pregnancy.

At the end of the scan the radiographer said that the babies bladder is more prominent and enlarged than it should be for this stage and that it is measuring 7mm.

She explained it COULD be because baby needs to pee, or it could be a sign of a problem. When I asked what would happen if things didnt improve by next week, she wouldnt answer.

If you’ve just found out you’re a mom-to-be chances are you’re full of questions about what to expect when you’re expecting. Generally, the dating scan takes place between 10 and 12 weeks of pregnancy, though it can be as early as 8 weeks.

Here’s a look at two of the most important and informative ultrasound scans nearly all new mothers experience: the dating scan and the anomaly scan. Typically the first ultrasound in your pregnancy, the dating scan gives us a very astute estimate of the date your little guy or gal will arrive.

What to Expect During the Anomaly Scan Nearly all practitioners order an anomaly scan for moms-to-be, so don’t panic.

Just as with the dating scan, you should come in with a full bladder to allow for better viewing.

Id really rather hear the honest truth about what we may be facing.

I guess she couldn't say without knowing if it is a problem or not.
