    ahh i dont get it....i spoke to my doctor last week all the fish did was told me to fill out someform and wait for the widwife to get intouch. how comes everyone else seem to be getting an appointment for scan so easy?

    iv booked an appointment with the doctor for today at 4.40 so hopfuly the doc will help(be more helpful) and sort my scan out.

    good luck with your scan sweet hope all goes well...let us know how it goes xxx

    The booking in appt goes through all your medical history and your partners - they test your urine and take some bloods, and just generally chat through things with you.

    Babydeabreu - wooah!! You might not hear for another good few weeks about any scan. I heard about mine at 10weeks, and went for it at 11+6. My midwife got in touch at 8 weeks and I had my booking in appt at 11+5. You may have a bit of a wait yet as there is nothing much they can do in the very early weeks :)
    It's hard, but it's a waiting game I'm afraid!

    glad your midwife appt went well! I'm still waiting for a letter from my midewife to find out when I will have mine! Time goes so slowly when you're waiting !!!!

    ...baby Deabreu I think it depends on what type of care you are having - mine is shared care between GP and midewife, so GP does intial appt, then midewife will do booking in and later a scan. All health authorities are different I think!

    I just had my booking in appointment half an hour ago...
    Midwife came to the house, gave me loads of leaflets and explained them, discussed medical history and that of DH's and our Parents. Started to fill in my booklet that I will be keeping with me whenever I go to any appointments etc. Gave details on when I should be seeing mw/scans/tests...and what to do next. Took bloods and did urine sample. Gave me a DVD on the maternity ward I am planning to use. Mentioned breast feeding :)blush:). Gave me an Emma's Diary lol with loads of coupons in. Discussed the "Quad" screening, which is the Down's test my Health care provider uses.

    We also discussed the next scan as I have exams the week I will be 12 weeks and the fact that I will have shared care as I had C sect with daughter...

    So really just more of an information purpose, and where you can ask loads of questions if you are unsure about something.

    :coffee:
