Aylala i would say turn up early as you will be getting your bloods taken so even if your appt card says 2.30 got for around 1.30 or so, semi p clinic opens at 1. I always go around then as you are just given a number to queue to doesnt really matter what it says on the card. I don't know what room Dr Rhona is in so cant say if you will get a scan or not, they generally do on the first visit though. My first visit was midwofe only for bloods etc and i got one, then first cons appt with Dr Keane and we also got one. Make sure you have gotten your booking reference and I think thats about all you need. Best of luck with it anyway, i have to say i love my visits!

yeah its a big occasion alright! You can ring in the morning for the booking ref, i rang for mine while i was there in the queue!! DH has come with me to all appts, he would be afraid the one time he misses an appt i will be scanned! We took the day off for our big scan also and then went for a nice lunch in town, any reason to celebrate. Best of luck tomorrow hun xx
