Can I request an early scan? Uk

After my last pregnancy ending in miscarriage, I'm terrified I'll go to my 12 week scan and the baby would of stopped growing. Can I just ask for a scan around 8 weeks? Or is that stupid?

There’s no harm in trying. Just try the early pregnancy unit in your hospital and explain your circumstances. Worst they can say is no x

yes you can lovely, ive had 4 mc and requested early scans at the early pregnancy unit.
just found out im expecting again and my consultant has booked me in for a 6 weeks scan already
(im in the uk )
ring the hospital or your GP and explain the situation and request an early scan, alot wont see you until your 8 weeks, my consultant just wants me earlier as ive lost 4 and the want to keep a closer eye on my this time x

Indeed you can, my Dr was very unhelpful with referring me as i had previous issues, called epu & she said you can self refer, i was offered a scan that afternoon, hope you manage to get one, it does put your mind at ease

It really depends on your hospital my local hospital are useless at giving early scans so I just book in with private places and pay for it
