My NT scan is tomorrow at 2. I'm just so nervous I'm physically sick! Part of me wants the big kids to go so they can see the baby, (they are on Spring Break), but part of my doesn't because they might find abnormalities, and I wouldn't want the kids there for that. What do you think. They are 13 and 11. I'm very torn. Please keep me in your thoughts that tomorrow is a great day for us!!

I'm not sure how your dr does these scans...at mine, the u/s tech does first scan, talks through what's she's looking at & measuring but doesn't comment on whether anything is good or worrisome...then my Dr comes in, scans again & reviews everything in detail with us. If you have similar arrangement, maybe have kids in for first part and step out for the 2nd? Hopefully you'll get nothing but good news, but speaking from the perspective of someone who did get bad news unexpectedly during an u/s I def wouldn't have wanted my child present for that.

Good luck to you, I hope everything goes perfectly for you!

I would probably wait until a later scan, like the anatomy scan, if you are worried about them being present for bad news. I am keeping you in my thoughts!

I would prob wait til a later scan as well. Maybe you could get a video on a cd to show them for now? Our OB will burn a cd of video or photos at any visit u have an u/s done.

WHere I am they don't allow any kids in the room, Iam unsure the ages, but they say no kids. I assume anything under 12??Anyways, here they also don't show the screen until they are done everything just so they have all their attention on baby. Ill be thinking about you.
Also why would you think there would be abnormalities, please don't drive yourself sick over it. This should be a joyous time. HUGS

Because I am an obsessive worrier with major anxiety I take meds for anxiety ( not while pg) so my anxiety is off.the.charts!! I think if I think the worst, if it happens, I won't be surprised, and if its good news, I'll be even happier. I know, sooo stupid!

My NT scan was like Lara's. I was a nervous wreck waiting for the dr to come back in and do her thing. In my case the baby looked great but I found out I have placenta previa. Kids would have been worried had I brought them. I do like the idea of having kids there for an anatomy scan

Good luck at your scan. Hope you get some great pics of your little one to share. My kids loved what I was able to bring home. They are hanging on the fridge

We took our kids with us, but they are much younger. If you think it will make you more nervous, maybe don't take them for this one?
