    I had my early scan (because of 2 m/c's) at just under 7 weeks. My doc called the epu whilst I was there with him and booked my appointment.

    The epu will tell you you need a referral from your doc...keep chasing hun!

    Ring the EPU .
    I rang them after I started getting bad pain in one side and spotting.
    They had me in three hours later for scan and bloods.
    I had a ruptured eptopic 4 years ago and lost a tube due to me not realising how bad it was.
    So this time they are really watching me and were great.
    That was at 6 weeks.

    Ring your EPU,that is what they are there for especially if you need reassurance (((hugs)))

    I had a m/c in April so I was due for an early scan. I informed them when I was 7 weeks and should have had an appointment the following week but it didn't come until I was 10 weeks! Anyway, a bit like you I wanted to know that everything was OK so I paid for a private on at 8 weeks just for peace of mind. This was £85 and worth every penny. I had the 10 week scan last week and its amazing to see how much the bubba grows in two weeks - no wonder we are all feeling sick etc! I have my final scan when I am 13 weeks and can't wait to see again how much its grown.

    Keep chasing them hun or pay for a private on if you can afford it.

    its a probe - done internally. dont worry it doesnt hurt and u get a clearer picture that way.
    good luck!
