Re: Anatomy scan after 22 weeks?

I had mine at 23 weeks. Also, I was actually told it is better to do it around 22 but before 24 weeks because they can see the heart much better at 22 weeks than before, as well as some other things they check. The ribs start to make it hard to see organs after 24 weeks though.
Eta: can you not bring your DD? My DH couldn't get off for mine either, I asked a friend to go with me to help with DD and that worked fine. My DD also went with me at 24 and 25 weeks to MFM and the cardiologist where they did echoes of the babies heart and she did really well. Just thought I'd mention that, maybe it's an option for you to take her too?
