Hi I got a letter this morning from UCHG for my first date in hospital. I'll be 17 weeks by then. Do you know will I get my scan that date?? I cant remember what happened with my son - all i remember is that I had scan at 20 weeks.

Hiya - I am public in UCHG – you will be scanned on your first app – but it may also be your last scan until the end – I have been back for my second app, and only cos I had a problem that I wanted them to check out ( they weren’t going to bother scanning) that they did the scan. First app took about 2 hours – what consultant are you under? I am with Prof Morrison…congrats on your news BTW………. 

I was public in UCHG on both pregancies. First appointment you will get scan and it typically the 17 to 20 week mark. Can take up to 2 and half hours even three. I was under O'Leary and found him very good. I've met with Prof Morrsion also, I like him too.

oh Im all excited now!!!! Im under Dr Una Conway. i had her for first baby and my first pregnancy was fine - delivery was a bit complicated - waters went at 1:30am....6-7cm dilated at 2am.....baby op so had foreceps. If baby wasnt op he would have been born by 3am but epidural and op slowed things down. ended up in surgery after birth for 1.5 hours with third degree tear and episiotomy...lovely! Doc thinks I'll be monitored very closely this time (not that monitoring would have changed anything last time)

She must be new? Glad to see someone else up there, it was so busy and turning into a joke.

Its the private clinic they run for both their private patients, and the infertility clinic. Its just past the complex where B&Q is in Knocknacarra - its beside the Aviva offices... HTH
