Could you get a private scan? I can't believe you've not been scanned yet!! Where I am in London they are insistent scan is done at 11 weeks and never later than 13!! I'd push for that scan if I were you! Have you had booking in done as that's normally done no later than 10 weeks. Good luck and I hope you get a scan very soon:)

Also with my first son I was a private Nanny. I used to take my little ones to music clubs etc. When I said I'd be on maternity leave at 8 months she was shocked as hadn't even noticed I was expecting!!! Honestly with the first my muscles were lovely and tight and looked neat and small!! However 2nd,3rd and 4 th there was no hiding it from 3 months!! Haha!!

So glad you heard the heartbeat it's great isn't it makes it so much more real!! I can't believe you've had to wait until 20 weeks for a first scan!! Honestly I'm shocked!! I'd have been camped outside hospital at 12 weeks!! Yes I used to wke incredibly hungry!! Eat a banana b4 bed x
28/08/2015 at 13:48
Yeah having to wait as I was late presenting they think it's not worth doing dating scan so want to jump straight into a 20 week :( wish I did camp outside tbh just want to see my little rugrat. .. hmm banana before bed might have to try that xxx

I am not sure whether this is a helps but I had a private scan at 18 weeks and I chose a lower option on as we wanted it purely to find out the sex before a family member passed away.
It was £65 instead of a normal private package of £180. I appreciate that may still be out of your budget but sometimes phoning and explaining your situation means they can adapt it to you.
I really feel for you as it was hard enough getting to 12 weeks let alone waiting until 20!
