Questions to ask at your 12-week scan

Finally, your 12-week scan is here! This pregnancy scan is an important one. It can also be very emotional, so it helps to have a list of questions pre-prepared. It’s easy to forget things when you’re in front of the monitor.

  1. Ask what clothes you need to take off for the scan. If it’s your first time, there’s no harm in asking.
  2. Ask for a cover-up to protect your modesty! You might want to avoid playsuits or jumpsuits on scan day as they’re a bit exposing.
  3. Ask what to expect in the 12-week scan if they haven't explained this to you.
  4. Ask if the little one is developing normally.
  5. Ask if you can get a picture before they start scanning — hospitals often have different policies about printing scans to keep.
  6. Ask the sonographer if they can record the audio of the heartbeat on a phone.
  7. Ask if the fetal heartbeat sounds normal.
  8. Ask about the accuracy of fetal heartbeat phone apps.
  9. Ask when your next scan is and what you can expect. Go to Your checklist of antenatal testing questions for further inquiries.
