    I've worked out that I'm 8 weeks 6 days.. meaning I'll be 12 weeks on the 10th Nov. However (even though I told the midwife how far I am) she booked my scan for the 5th November, and I've just realised I'll be 5 days off 12 week.... will they still be able to do it or will it be a problem?

    (I'm definetly 8 weeks 6 days cus I've had a 5 week and 8 week scan)

    Thanks :)

    They don't even do an automatic early scan here. As long as you have a normal pregnancy you get one at 18-21 weeks lol. But I think most scans are done in a period of a few weeks because pregnancy is not an exact science :)

    i thought i was 12 weeks and the put me back 4 days, so the point of it is to date you and bubs.

    My SIL thought she was 12 weeks and turned out to be 9! So they can still see everything and give you a more accurate due date!
