    Hi Ladies, abit nervous bout coming into Tri 1 but trying to stay positive.

    Ive been here before last year but unfortunately had 2 MC's, so hoping for 3rd time lucky.

    I went to doctors last night and she did her usual checks and have made an appointment for midwife on 22nd Feb, i will be 7 + 2 I asked for an early scan but she said i would have to ask the midwife to book that.

    For those of you who have had an early scan how did it happen for you?

    Im sure im will asking lots more questions so thanx in advance :)

    Nikki

    Hi honey. Congratulations hope you have a happy and healthy pregnancy with a sticky bean. I've booked an early scan as we had a mc at 10+2 last time :-( It's this Friday so I'll be 6+1 but just want to put my mind at rest for a bit. Looking forward to hearing how you're getting on :) xxx

    Congratulations :) I hope this is a super sticky bean for you.

    The policy for early scans seems to vary greatly from area to area, although I would wait until I was at least 6 weeks if I were you. I got one at 9 weeks to check my dates, even though I was sure of them, although prior to this being arranged we were going to book a private scan for 7 weeks as I know I would not be able to hold out until 12. Sometimes they can't pick up the heartbeat before 6 weeks (hence i was going to opt for 7 to make sure!) and I think that would freak me out.

    I would look into going privately. Good luck.xx

    Welcome! :) So nice to see you here!! I had an early scan when I was 9 weeks, but I know you can have them earlier as well. I think I have some pictures in my journal if you want to see;)

    Wishing you lots of luck!!

    :hugs:

    Hiya Nikki and Congrats! I saw my midwife at about 6+5, and told her I had a previous mc, so she automatically booked me for an early scan at my local epu when I was 7+4. She was so lovely, and it was amazing to see the tiny embryo with a flashing heartbeat - it made me cry!

    Hi Spinneygirl,

    I hope this is third time lucky for you FX. I have had an early scan with this pregnancy due to previous ectopic to ensure baby is in the correct place (infact i've had 3).
    My first scan was 12/1/12 but the sonographer said it was too early, they saw something in my womb but thought it was a water bubble (which may indicate another ectopic), so i had to go again on the 26/1/12 and this time they saw baby and we got to see the heartbeat, baby measured at 6w5d, the following day I had some bleeding so i called the m/w and i was sent for another scan on 30/1/12, baby is still doing good and is now measuring at 8w2d (little heffa lump). I totally understand how you feel, and i hope this pregnancy is the one for both of us x x

    Thanx everyone for the welcome and advice. For those of you who have had private scans, how have you arranged them?

    Thanks

    I went to the GP, and asked for a scan to be arranged. they will usually only do this if you have lost 3 or more, have had an ectopic or have had pains or bleeding x x
