    I am 13 weeks and have still to hear about the scan! I am seeing that a lot of people have gotten their first scans before week 13 and I am getting a little anxious about it. Since I found out about the baby that is what I have been waiting for.
    I am seeing my midwife on Wednesday and I will be asking her when to expect it but I have a feeling that she won't be able to give me any answers as it will probably be the hospital who deals with these things.

    It may be you don't get a 12 week scan in your area and its a wait till a 20 week one.

    My scans are booked by my MW, but I did phone the unit myself and booked my 20 week one, as MW was away for a few weeks.

    There may be a waiting list - where I am there is and I wasn't getting my 12 weeks scan until I was 16 weeks. Luckily I got it at 13 weeks as I was admitted to hospital

    Give the ultrasound dept a call

    Hopefully the MW can chase up your appointment if you are due one around 12 weeks. If not it may be a wait till 20 weeks

    I am planning to speak to the midwife about it. I am just so excited about getting a scan and finally being able to see this little thing that is keeping me up all night with sickness! hehe

    My GP booked my scan for me
    She rung them up and i had an early reassurence scan at 10 half weeks. then after that the i had a scare at 16 weeks and my a GP agian booked the scan for me. my 21 week scan was booked through the hospital and i had a letter telling when it was. Ive only seen my midwife once to check blood and urines at 12 half weeks i see her agian at 24/25 weeks. so ive had more contact through GP Mabye ring them. My GP also booked my appointment to see the midwife.
