Hi everyone, i was wondering when ye had ye're first scan or due to have it, I am due mine in my 15th week and it seems so long away if anything was wrong, I got my bloods done yesterday and my gp just said he would write a letter for my Gynecologist going in for my scan, so I wont need to see anyone until then, Is that normal???
You can get a private scan if you are willing to pay, there are links floating around for contact details.
Hi mrs S
We had our first scan at 14 weeks, it seemed like a long time into the pregnancy, but I think that this is normal enough. I think some mum to be's are left waiting longer than 15 weeks in some cases
Thanks dootsay, I am impatient at the best of times!!
Second scan was at 20 weeks, and will have another one at 34 weeks to check position of placenta.
It's very exciting! I found the first 12 weeks dragged by but since then the weeks have been flying past!
We had first scan at 9 weeks, but I think it was so early because I literally found out I was pregnant about 5 mins after it happened so got myself off to the doctor nice and early
I had mine at 8 weeks, similar situation to shobie, found out i was pregnant the day i was due. Went to doctor 4 days later booked consultant that day, so got in nice and early. As a result all my scans have timing wise been a little strange.
I am going private also but she said 15 weeks was okay but I just booked a private scan there for 8 weeks just to make sure things are the way they are supposed to, it seems 15 weeks is a long time if something has happened in the meantime, I would be driven out of my mind,
Thanks a mill to everyone who helped me with this
I'll actually be a day short of 17weeks
Im having my scan on Week 12. It depends i think on you consultant. I must get my bloods done next week though.
, it's just the policy for my midwives, that only one scan is done at 20 weeks.
After the bleeding (even though everything looked ok) we booked a private scan for 13 weeks also, so I've had 3 now, and have a 3d one booked for 7 weeks time, then that's it!
I had a scan at 7 weeks because of bleeding, but other than this, my first (and only) scan was the 20 week one (although I got a date for this at 18w 2d).
It was nothing to do with booking in early or late, etc, as I booked in before I even reached 4 weeks
