    I am a wee bit confused. I have a midwife appointment when I am 25 weeks but was just wondering if I will have any more scans before baby is born? When I left after the 20 week one no one said anything to me at all. Was just thinking its a long time to go without thats all?? Sorry for sounding like a complete air head!!

    Oh thats good to hear! I just feel a bit mis- informed! My midwife is useless so I wasn't even going to bother asking her!

    I dont think i get one at 36 weeks inless theres a medical reason i thought that you had a 12 week (depending on where you live) and the 20 week, then thats it :think: .

    i think it depends on the area as down here you only get a 12 and 16 week scan unless you pay to go private

    In Aberdeen you routinely get 2 - one at 12 weeks and one at 20 weeks. You only get another one if there's a problem. OH's sister is in Inverness and she only gets one :( If they didn't get you to book for another I think that may be your last :(

    I only get 2 on the NHS, at 12 and 20 weeks.

    When I was pg with James and lived in Cambridge I got an extra one at 28 weeks but they don't seem to do that routinely anymore.

    Usually, you will only get one or two. Glasgow do one at 16 weeks, most other places do 12 weeks then 20 weeks.

    I am from the North East and I get a 12 week and 20 week as standard. I am going to get one at 30 weeks too, but this is an extra one to make sure the baby is growing as I am a medium risk pregnancy.

    Hi, I'm also in the north east and only got two scans with jack, 1 at 12 wks another at 20wks. I had one at 15 wks as I had a bleed but generally its just the two.

    I have been classed as high dependency this time so I wonder if I will get any towards the end!! ooh its all so exciting!!!!

    I had one at 12 weeks and 20 weeks

    I have to make an appointment with the doctor for when I am 22 weeks (better remember to do that) then I have no idea when I see my midwife again as the stuff is in my notes and I haven't been given them yet
