Hi,

I had a scan yesterday as all my preg symptoms has stopped on the Friday and I feared the worst as I have already had 2 missed m/c in the past. Thankfully we saw a heartbeat. Does anyone know if by 8 weeks and 3 days the arms and legs should be showing on the scan as the lady who did the scan said there were no arms or legs yet but I have been looking at websites and they said by 8 weeks they should be developing, the baby measures 23mm. I know it is early days but was not sure if they should at least be showing a little bit by now.

Would be grateful for any advice.

Thanks

Jx

Hiya Johanna

Congratulations on your BFP

Just to say that i had scans at 8weeks 4days and saw no arms or legs, i also had one at 9weeks 4days as some plonker hit me head on with a shopping trolley  ::) and by the 9w4d scan you could see the arms and legs just starting to grow hun

Hope this helps
