I got one at 10weeks, and was told I wouldn't get another one as Im classed as low risk, so I went out and booked a private one for 14weeks, and I'm booked in for a 3d/4d scan for tomorrow.

we're going public and we'd a mini scan at our 1st hospital apt at 19 wks and then the big scan at 21wks. Was told then that there wouldn't be another scan unless I went overdue.

I suppose it could differ in different parts of the country. I know for Limerick region, its usually 1 about 14 wks and another around the 30 wks mark. I have had friends who when they went for their checkups in the hospital, if they got a really nice Dr they might sneak another one in.

I'm attending Portlaoise and I had one at about 15 weeks, then had one at 24 weeks. It wasn't mentioned whether I will be getting any more. I also had a scan at 8 weeks but I don't think this is standard, I think it was due to having a previous m/c.

[quote="another1":15lmbbyw]hi girls just wondering for those of you who went or are going public - how many scans did you get and at what stages were they? i got one at 14 weeks and im in for another appointment in a few weeks - just wondering will i be getting a scan then or is it just a check up? thanks in advance for responces *)[/quote:15lmbbyw] It depends on what hospital you are attending. I'm in holles St and officially they only scan you around 20 weeks. however I had a rough time in the first trimester and have had a number of mini scan since then. It seems to depend on what doctor you get and which room you are brought into.
