    One at 11 weeks to check heartbeat and number of babies and another one at 20 weeks for anomalies, I think that's pretty standard practice.

    in our area they scan you routinely at about 12 and 20 weeks - so 3 is good going

    if its just a normal preg with no complications or risks we dont go back to the hosp all antenatal care is done by community midwife at docs surgey

    I have had 4 with this pregnancy but one of those was due to 3 previous miscarriages and one a growth check due to problems with my pregnancy with my son. In this area the standard is one at 12 weeks and one at 20 weeks. xx

    I've had 5 though to check growth! x

    Just a dating scan at 13wks was all we were offered in Glasgow!

    Extra scans only if there are problems - so far so good!! x:flower:

    Here if there are no issues then it's a scan at 12 weeks and another one at 20 weeks.
    I had three early scans due to a suspected ectopic pregnancy and I have a scan at 34 weeks to check placenta (it was low lying at my 20 week scan) xx

    Iv had 3 so far.Iv to go back again when Im 35 weeks gone,so Im assuming I will get another scan then as well.My friend from Wales was telling me they only get 2 scans there.I think it depends on the hosipital and the area you live in.xxx

    In my area if all is well you get one at around 12 weeks then one around 20 weeks and thats it.

    I got another at 36 weeks to check placenta position as it was very low at 20 weeks.

    Normally you only have 12 week scan and 20 week scan through NHS, But I had an early scan at 7 weeks due to a bleed, then my 12 week scan at 13 weeks, and then my 20 week scan at 23 weeks (they were a bit late!) Ive also had a Growth scan at 28 weeks and due to have another one at 32 weeks to check on some fluid on babies brain. We also booked a private gender scan at 16 weeks at Babybond. Usually just the 2 with NHS tho :) xx
