Hi 7 weeks since my last period, went to GP 2 weeks ago and had pg confirmed and he said he would post off paperwork to hosp. Rang hosp today and they said it could be another 4 weeks before i receive my app in the post. That would put me at around the 11 week mark so I presume they wouldn't be doing a 12 week scan? If its 18 weeks I think I will get a scan done at one of the private clinics I just want some reassurance its all going ok!

Hi nyota, It depends on whether you are public or private. I'm going public and most doctors will organise your scan for 12wks. My own doctor did all my bloods for me, so I didn't get a scan until 20wks. Generally speaking, you get your 1st scan at 12wks..

I'm having my babs in Mullingar & my scan is not until 4th March - I got my letter ages ago. That will make me nearly 15 weeks by the time I see them & I haven't even been told I'll definitely be scanned then! Are you public or private? I'm going public.

I'm going public in Mullingar and I had my first and only scan at 13 weeks, I went to the doctor around the 6 week mark to get the pregnancy confirmed and then I got the appointment from the hospital within a week or two.
