    Hi Ladies.

    I am not 100% sure on dates due to conceiving whilst on the Pill. I had a proper AF on 6th Jan which is when I changed to the Mini pill. I then had a bleed in Feb and think I had one at the beginning of March, but didnt make a note :blush:

    Anyway, when I did a Digital one it said 1-2 weeks since conception. I think I am therefore 4 weeks 5 days. The midwife says I will have a dating scan, I am seeing her for the first time on 21st April. Has anyone been in my position? I just wondered when I would get a scan? I am in West Yorkshire if anyone else is, to compare midwifery care.
    I am just desperate to see the bean, I can't stop thinking that all of a sudden I just wont be PG any more.
    Sorry for rabbling!!!

    I'm in the same position. I'm guessing I'm 5-6 weeks but not completely positive due to pill troubles. Have doc's appointment next week but they didn't mention anything about me getting a dating scan.

    Am also constantly worried in case everything stops moving forward but I'm trying to keep myself as (safely) busy as possible so I don't dwell too much!

    I'm also unsure of my dates as my February period was only 2 days long and not as heavy as usual. So I'm not 100% sure if I'm 6 weeks, or 10 lol! I had my MW appointment on Friday and she said that she'd contact the hospital to get a dating scan done as soon as possible because the Nuchal scan needs to be done between 11 and 13+6 weeks. So if I am 10 weeks now then the Nuchal scan needs to be booked pretty quick hehe!

    Thank you. This is the same as me. I hope they get me a dating scan, and then still a nucal scan after that. I reckon I am probably 5 weeks, but there is a small chance I could be nearer 8 .
    Good Luck with getting yours :hug:

    I was told by my hospital that first scans are done between 10 and 14 weeks - I hope this helps. 8 weeks might be too early!!

    They will not usually give you an earlier scan unless you have had bleeding ect, even then they are funny about giving them out? Also if you were to have an earlier dating scan, there is every possiblity you wont get one at 12 weeks (at the normal time) if you know what i mean??

    Im the same, but am unsure as to how to work it out, my last period was only like 2 days and was roughly the middle of feb, when i did a digital test on the 29th of march it said 2-3 weeks, so im a bit confused by it all.
    I have a scan on thursday so hopefully they can shed some light

    Well I had the date thru yesterday for my dating scan.. 17th November when I'll be either nearly 8 weeks or nearly 12 weeks. My MW said that I'll still get my nuchal scan too as they want to do blood tests etc.
    I guess if I'm nearly 12 weeks, they might do the whole nuchal scan and bloods there and then rather than call me back?

    Went to see the Midwife and told her my LMP predicament! She said she will put query Feb LMP on the Scan request then I can get one in the next couple of weeks. She said if I am further behind than that and we cant see much she will request a further one!

    Exciting, so I shall just wait to hear, luckily here you can be scanned at the hospital or the health center and apparently that means there are more appointment slots, so waiting time is never too long :happydance::cloud9:
