    scans

    I am 10 weeks pregnant and desperatly want to have a scan as i keep having dreams that there is no baby! I feel like i am going completely mad! I just need to see that there is actually something there, then i can relax. Does anyone know where i can get a scan done? My hospital wont do it until 18 weeks, and i cant wait that long. I dont need any of the tests or anything, just the scan. I havent got insurance, so need somewhere fairly cheap!

    You can go to any obstetrician and they will give you a scan, I had my first at 8 weeks.
    My obstetrician charges $850-950 for a scan, plus $750 consultation fee.
    You can check out some of the past posts on here for other doctors and their fees. It is possible to find cheaper ones.

    Hi Marie, I had my pregnancy confirmed with my doctor when I was only 5 weeks. She charges me HKD$700 for the consultant fees, the ultrasound and the folic acid pills for 3 weeks. I think it is very reasonable.

    Her name is Dr Jennie Ng Ching Wah at 2523 6888

    Room 1318 Melbourne Plaza
    33 Queen's Road C
    Hong Kong

    She has more than 20 years experience and in her clinic she can even do 4d scan where you can actually see your baby moving!

    Good luck!

    And you can look at the following link on other people's comments on Dr Jennie Ng:

    Dr. Jennie Ng at Melbourne Plaza?

    Yes I could, Marie. Nothing too exciting though. You could see a circle and the doctor told me that was the baby!

    Now you are at 10 weeks, you should be able to see little legs and arms. I will have my scan at 8 weeks on Wednesday lunch. I am excited!

    Anita,
    How exciting! Have you seen the web site http://pregnancy.about.com/cs/pregna...l/blweek10.htm
    this shows scans for every week so you can get a rough idea of what your baby looks like each week. i have been mildly obsessed with this site since finding out i was pregnant!

    Had you scan, Marie?

    Me too! I have searched though the web just to find the ultrasound images! Thanks for the link. Will go and check it out after work.

    Have you had your scan yet, Marie.
