10w2d – Dating Scan!


Today we had our “12 week scan”, also known as the “dating scan”. Firstly, they screwed up with the dates and gave me my appointment too early. I told the midwife this and she advised me to go anyway because then they’d have to give me another one at 12 weeks- two chances to see our baby! Secondly the “dating” part of the scan which means giving a more accurate due date based on the baby’s size rather than your last period, doesn’t apply to IVF pregnancies as this is always just calculated from the transfer date. So our due date remains 31st January šŸ™‚

And WOW the change in the 10 days since we had our last scan is incredible! He now has a CRL of 31.6mm, which means he’s been growing more than a mm per day and is right on target for 10 weeks 2 days. I still have a small blood clot which was either missed in the last scan or has since reappeared but we’ve been assured that it’s nothing to worry about. And our Chicklet looks amazing, he was kicking really hard and moving a lot. We could see all of his fingers and toes. The picture doesn’t do it it justice but he looked amazing on the screen šŸ™‚ ā¤ ā¤ ā¤


  1. Wow that’s so exciting! I’m so glad you’re getting an opportunity to see him grow so much! Can you feel him kicking already, or just see it in the scan? I can’t wait to have a scan like this! Congrats šŸ™‚
