    I saw mine at 10 weeks, but at the time it was booked they thought I was already 12 weeks along but on the scan I was actually only 10. Hope that make sense....

    I interviewed mine at 5 weeks and my first appointment is next week. But I had dr's appointments before transferring to her with a full prenatel exam at 6 weeks.

    I don't think I could have waited until 12 weeks for a scan... good luck!

    I'm not going to get to see the MW until 12 weeks either (which will be mid-Jan). Useless insensitive NHS. So I'm having a private scan next week since I can't wait until then. xx

    I'm in the US and that's the same for me. Then they will have me come back at 11 weeks to be examined by the doc.

    I first saw my midwife on Monday when I was 10 weeks, and I don't have my first scan until 5th Jan when I will be nearly 15 weeks. I'm raging about that, and if it wasn't for the expense of Christmas I would definitely think about a private scan. But I'm just going to have to be patient and wait until January.

    I saw my mw a couple days ago for my first appointment and my first scan is on Jan. 13 when I'll be 11w 6d. I think they only do scans really early if there is a suspicion that something might be wrong like bleeding or bad cramps or previous miscarriage, etc. The purpose of the 12 week scan is to see if there is a risk of down's syndrome or genetic disorders, and they can't tell if these might be present much earlier as the baby is too small. I can understand wanting a scan earlier, but there isn't a medical reason to do one, so they don't automatically do them.
