If I will get a scan, I am so excited I might get to see baby today, if not will they check for a heart beat at least?

bride I've been told my first visit will be a booking in visit. Where I'll get to see the birthing suite we'd have, meet the midwives, have my history taken etc,. And make an appointment for a scan. :( So as far as I know - in the community midwives scheme in Holles street you DO NOT have a scan on yoru first visit. :( best of luck anyway, maybe your consultant will do one! Fingers crossed she does.

Hi bride may, i don't know where you are located but at my first visit at 12 weeks I was scanned. It was so very clear, lovely experience. They might just listed for for the heartbeat with the doppler but I am not sure what the procedure is in any other hospital but Limerick. In Limerick they scan at 12 weeks and at 31 weeks only.. long wait between the two!! Best of luck today :D

Best of Lucky Bride May I am sure you can ask them to hear the baby's heartbeat
