my gynae has referred me to do a growth scan for my next appt at 32 weeks. is this anything of concern? has any mummies done it before?
I think a growth scan is pretty normal. I did mine during 30wks. They just need to take measurements of the baby's skull and limbs etc to ensure my baby is growing normally. Also the sonographer trying to take some 3D scan photos of my baby face but she keep using her hand to cover her face so cant see her at all. I thought of doing it again but cost about $100+ per scanning and cant guarantee this time she will co-operate with the sonographer.
hmmm... my gynae didnt ask me to go for the growth scan... maybe i should request??
Yes, it's very normal to go for growth scan, usually around 32 weeks or so. I had it for all my 3 kids! When I was seeing a gynae at singapore general hospital, my gynae told me this is normal procedure, i.e 3 essential scans will be performed : the nuchal measurement at 12 weeks, detail scan at 20 weeks and growth scan at 32 weeks. Basically, they need to do some measurements of the baby to ensure he/she is growing steadily.
I think its normal to go for growth scan at 32 weeks... my growth scan will due in two weeks and im already been book for it since two mnths ago.. i think it depends on your dr as mine had made me go through more tests and scans comparing to my friends who r seeing other dr but its okay for me as it makes me feel assure that my baby is fine and the pregnancy r going smoothly..
My gynea did not ask me to go for growth scan. Probably will do so when i see her during my 30th week.
Make a pregnancy ticker
in my 32weeks , but doc dint ask me to go for growth scan . is it necessary ?
I didn't went for growth scan either.
i did growth scan for both my pregnancies at 28weeks..I'm with Kandang Kerbau Hospital,so quite standard for them to do a detail scan at 20weeks n a growth scan at 28weeks.. if did not rem wrong,there's still 1more growth scan at 36weeks..
Other hospitals do scans in how many weeks i not sure,do you have scannings of your baby everytime you visit?was told private hospitals do scans everytime you visit.. Kandang Kerbau Hospital subsidized dont scan everytime you visit,so i did not know..
I have check with my gynea just now. She says growth scan maybe do at 34th weeks.
I dont know issit just me,but whenever there is a scan or check,I will get so excited n worried at the same time haha.. At times I hope every time I go check up they will do scan for me so that I can see my baby more n knows that she is growing well.. Haha
I'm not sure also.. Cuz I'm Kandang Kerbau Hospital subsided(to save more $ for baby),not every check up will have a scan of baby.. But I feel it's ok,Kandang Kerbau Hospital is quite responsible,they will inform you when have scans or any special checks..
I agree with dujuanrosa,growth scan r done for more details according to doctor's requests..If your gynae didn't say there's a need for growth scan,there should be no problem.. you can always ask your gynae about it.. I always pop questions to my doctor almost every visit haha..
Haha I will ask if this n that can be eaten during pregnancy.. Or some parts of my body cramp n pain,issit normal? Baby's movements very active at night,normal? Baby's weight avg range,too small or big?am I putting on too much weight?skin / gums / nose sensitive during pregnancy will affect baby?mood swing n depression? All kind of things that pop to my mind haha..
Everytime I have alot of qns in mind before seeing my gynea. But when i see her, i forgot all my qns.
