    In UK, the first booking appointment with the mw is around 9-10weeks depending on the area, but does anyone know the appointment is offered depending on the weeks counted from LMP or actual n gestational week which might be a week behind? I do think they follow the LMP week.I am 7+5 weeks by LMP.Just feel too long a wait as I hvnt got the appointment letter yet:wacko:

    All dating is done from LMP until your scan. I would go with your LMP date for booking your appointment. The worst that can happen is that your scan will show 11 weeks instead of 12 and that is not a problem at all.

    I had to call up and make my own appointment for mine. So, try that. But yep, LMP. They go by that for everything. :)

    I've not had my appointment yet either but I have been to see the doc.

    I went to the doc for something else (when I booked the appointment I didn't even know I was pregnant) I did a test that morning and mentioned it to my doc while I was there.

    She filled out a form, checked my phone number and told me that the midwife would call me to talk and arrange an appointment.

    She also mentioned a scan at 6 weeks which I thought was strange (I won't hold my breath on that one lol). With my son I am sure that they arranged for me to have a scan at 12 weeks, turned out I was 11 so went back a week later, doubt the system would have changed much in 3-4 years!

    Not heard yet from the midwife, don't think I will for a few weeks yet tho.

    when you go/ring your GP they will ask for LMP and sort out your appointment based on this x

    i registered at a new surgery and was offered an appointment the next day for the 22nd nov when i will be 7+5 so i guess it just depends on your area and surgery

    I called my docs a few days after I found out I was pregnant, they said the midwife wont see me until I am around 8 weeks, so I have my first appointment On Wednesday.

    I had to contact the midwives myself. They asked for the first date of my LMP and then they worked out wheni would be 8 weeks and thats when i had my first appointment

    I had to register with a new GP as I've moved to another city. I'm seeing the Dr tonight but not sure what to expect as I only had my BFP last week saying I'm 4 weeks pregnant.
