    Hi ladies sorry for pointless thread but I wanted your opinions please. Basically I was meant to have a scan this Wednesday at EPU 9.30. Now because I was bleeding they brought it forward a week and I had my scan last Wednesday everything was fine still a bleed around the sac but baby had a heartbeat and measuring correctly with dates from previous scans. So I have my 12 week scan booked 4th July and the lady I usually see didn't see me this time but basically I have had a text off NHS no reply saying I have a scan at my epu on Wednesday at 9.30. Last week they never mentioned me going back this Wednesday but didn't say it was cancelled either. I totally forgot to mention it. Anyway do I turn up for the appointment and chance not being scanned they might not want scan me cause everything was fine but they haven't cancelled it either. Part of me being selfish just to see my baby again I want to go but do I ring and double check? But then they might say oh sorry we should of cancelled it. I know I'm best ringing but I guess I still want my original scan appointment lol but that's me being selfish I know :/. What do I do ladies? Ring or chance it? Sorry for the long post xxx

    If it was me i would be tempted to go. It wouldn't hurt to see baby again. Or you could call and check, and tell them that if you can you would like to keep the appointment xx

    If it was me I would just go on the basis that you got the text confirmation of your appointment - you never know, even if it has been cancelled they may try and fit you in especially if you show them the text!!

    Good luck

    xx

    id def go, if they wanted to cancel the appointment they should have done, just go and show them the message and say nobody told you it was cancelled, im sure they will scan you again

    Thank you!! Now I'm stressing argh I accidentally copied and pasted my appointment text to someone I know who would tell everyone I'm pregnant so I've said sorry my friend sent me that I was meant send it to my mum as I'm going with my friend. If someone rang the EPU and said the time of the appointment and not the name can the EPU give my name? Argh I really don't want people to know xxx

    I am sure they will still do your scan. I asked when they did my emergency scan yesterday. They said that I would still get my normal scans even though I had the emergency one yesterday. Fingers crossed they see you and that everything is ok xxxxx
