Needing to urinate more often is one of the most common symptoms of pregnancy. It can actually be one of the first signs that you might be expecting, but it can also persist throughout your pregnancy. As well as needing more frequent bathroom breaks, you can also develop pregnancy incontinence, which means that you are less in control of your bladder.
By the time you have your mid-pregnancy scan, your baby will already have developed the major structures and organs. You may be surprised to see how your baby has changed, especially if you haven’t had an ultrasound for a few weeks. During the Anomaly Scan, we will be able to check the major organs, including the baby’s heart, brain, spine and digestive system. However, it’s important for us to look beyond your baby and check the supporting structures too. During the mid-pregnancy Anomaly Scan we will also look at the following structures.
Checking on the placenta, amniotic fluid and umbilical cord during your mid-pregnancy Anomaly Scan can help us to assess the risk of certain problems during the later stages of your pregnancy:
If we detect any issues with these structures at your mid-pregnancy Anomaly Scan, then you may need to have some additional ultrasounds during the remainder of your pregnancy. We can monitor issues such as a low-lying placenta to see if there are any changes. Keeping a close eye on your condition will enable us to spot the first signs of trouble.
The reports we provide will also help your midwife or obstetrician to make the best recommendations about your care. For example, if you are at high risk of complications you may need to choose a hospital delivery rather than a home birth. In some cases, you might need medication or other treatments to ensure that your pregnancy and delivery are as safe as possible.

All the staff were really nice to us . At the reception, the girls were smiling and welcoming. We were late and they managed to give us another quick appointment without waiting. The Lady who did a Scan was really good and professional. I was able to ask all questions I wanted and she was really reassuring.
