So just out of my doctor, and she said my big scan would be in 5 weeks time, when I'll be 22 weeks. Now I know I am just being impatient but last time around I got it at 20 weeks, bit gutted I have to sit it out for an extra 2 weeks :) When did everyone else get theirs?

Harrumph, feel very hard done by ;) I did ask the secretary why it was a bit later and she said the consultant preferred it as sometimes you can see a bit more, or something. Oh well, patience is a virtue, allegedly.

21w+1. Anytime during week 21 or 22 is normal. Good luck

I was 18.5 weeks but I remember the hospital saying it could be anywhere from 18-22 weeks. I would have preferred a bit later to be honest.

22 weeks here - we wanted to find out the sex so it ended up actually suiting us because it was easier to tell than at 20 (or so we were told at the time anyway)
