Am I Allowed an Early Scan?


I'm going to see my GP this morning, to tell her I'm pregnant and ask what do I do now.

I would like to be scanned sooner than 12 weeks as I've MC'd at 7 weeks before.

Is it OK to request that?

you can ask hon its just down to the hospital as to wether they will or not, i had a mmc before getting pregnant with Freddie and asked for an earlier scan and got one at about 9 and half weeks so bit better than waiting till 12 weeks. only thing was i didnt get a 12 week scan then and had to wait till 20 weeks for the next one xx

you can only ask tho, or pay for a private one early xxx

I would ask, definitely. From reading posts on here, it does seem that some people who have had mcs seem to get earlier scans, but I guess it depends on your area etc. I had an early scan at 6+2 but that was because of some spotting.

Hey Chick, Firstly Congrats!!!!

I don't think it's normal to get an early scan but if you've had previous problems then i'd defo ask! Stress any concerns you have they may be able to help! xxx

congratulations! definately ask hun, it is just down to their own policy as to whether or no they'll let you. i had a mmc in april and have had a scan at 6 wks and having another one this morning at 8 weeks. it's totally unfair as some people in the same position have to pay for private scanning. fingers crossed you live in the right place...x

Hi, your user thingy says southcoast - I'm Brighton & Hove - Big Fat NO for re-assurance scans went private for mine, Dorset is definitely yes though if previous mmc, so am afraid it's luck of the draw with your pct.
When I asked my dr she just refered me to the midwife who after waiting a week and a half for the appointment told me no - just don't let them palm you off.
Good Luck, FX all is fine.
