October 4, 2012

We never forget our first baby scan, that fabulous realisation that there is REALLY a baby in there! And with the latest technology, you can now even see your baby in 3D too…

We’ve joined forces with leading Harley Street baby scan clinic to give you the chance to WIN one of these amazing 3D/4D scans worth £250 – pop over to like our facebook page and to tell us why you’d like to win one, and at how many weeks a pregnant woman has her first ‘dating scan’…. scroll down for a clue! Winners will be notified by email, so make sure you click the link below too to send us your email address 🙂

Amoralia spoke this week to Lula Besana who told us her own moving baby scan story.

Lula writes:

“the 3D/4D scan I had with our baby was a lovely surprise. We paid for one whilst my Grandmother was here visiting from Italy, as a present for her 80th birthday. It meant such a lot to us, as Nan suddenly died when he was just 4 weeks old, before I could travel to Italy to introduce him, so I am glad she had the chance to ‘see him’ at the scan.

It’s not a perfect image because the baby had his hands in front of his face for the whole time. They sent me for walks, I had to drink LOADS of water, jump around etc… but nothing! He STILL had his hands in front of his face!!! But it still was a great experience and I’m glad my Nan had the chance to share it with us, bless her.”

When can I have my first baby scan?

Most NHS hospitals will offer women at least two ultrasound scans during your pregnancy. The first early pregnancy scan is usually when you are around 8-14 weeks pregnant and is sometimes called the dating scan, as it can provide you with your Estimated Due Date (EDD). The second scan usually takes place between 18 weeks and 20 weeks, 6 days. It’s called the ‘anomaly scan’ as it scans for structural abnormalities in the baby, and the ultrasound scans use sound-waves to build a picture of your baby in the womb.

When can we have a 3d/4D scan?

A 3D baby scan shows the baby in three dimensions, and a 4D scan is a moving image of a 3D scan!  A 3D/4D scan uses the same technology as the earlier 2D scans. The perfect time to perform a 3D/4D scan is between 24 and 32 weeks of pregnancy. These are AMAZING so we have joined forces with www.babyscanclinic.com to offer you the chance to win one of these 3D/4D scans.
