    Usually at public hospital, you only get one scan at week 20. They would however use the doppler to listen to your baby heart beat on each appointment.

    When you go to a private doctor, however, usually they would give you a scan each time. The reason is because the doctor charge you for each scan, and also because sometime the mum want to see and make sure that the little one is fine.

    actually, that's not true. they do a scan at 12 weeks in public hospitals, too (at least they used to). the scan at 20 weeks is the thorough scan and can take 40+minutes

    Oh, that is true... I missed that cause I did it in a private clinic..... Actually... not sure, cause what I had around week 12 was the OSCAR test. I thought they schedule the nuchal scan for you on public hospitals only if they consider that you have high risk for down syndrome (due to age, etc.).....

    In my experience, they usually only do a quick scan (like 30 seconds) except for the big scans at 12 and 20 weeks (where they are doing downs testing and detailed organ check)
