    I got my letter through a few weeks ago with scan date for this Friday. No success in trying to change as they never answer the phone as was put back a week at my early scan.

    Iv just went back to read the letter and I'm a bit confused it doesn't really have any info on it just says an outpatient appointment has been arranged for you it gives technician name and specialty ultrasonics and doesn't really give more than that. Is this my actual scan appointment or something else?

    Can you tell I'm a first timer I'm so clueless I'm just assuming its a scan as it says ultrasonics.

    Sounds like it- why don't you try your midwife to see if she can help change it?

    Reckon it's ur actual scan letter. Wouldn't worry about being put back a week. The measurements in an early scan aren't as accurate as what they are measuring is so small and missing a mm off really changes the measurements a lot. I expect on fri u will have caught up again. X

    I wouldn't change it I was put back on my early scan and they were wrong. My dates were spot on. Sounds like a scan letter.

    Never heard of a dating scan at 16 weeks, they are always around 12 weeks
    Maybe call your midwife it may be a mistake in your book

    Just call them? They will answer the question better than we can :)

    Could be a simple mistake or something

    Hi,

    I rang them there's a reason why they've called me in early a bit over the top to be honest I don't think there is an need for it .
