    I received mine about 10 days before my scan, which was 12+4. If you get to 12 weeks and you haven't heard, then chase it up as it ideally should be done before 14 weeks.

    I'm jealous of all you ladies with scan dates haha

    I have seen midwife at 6 weeks, and again at 8 weeks! I'm lucky that I got an ultrasound to put my mind at ease due to cramps at 7 weeks!!! If I hadn't I'd be going crazy!!!

    Seems like it's going to be a while before scan date boooo lol

    I got my letter last weekend and will be having my scan next Monday when I'll be 11+2.
    I think a lot of it depends on how busy the department is, you might just be in an area that's experiencing a bit of a baby boom at the moment :)

    Fingers crossed you get a date soon :)

    Can you choose the time of your scan in the uk, me and my Husband run our own business and are short staffed at the minute I really want him at my scans so was wondering if they do late afternoon appointments close to
    5pm?

    i had to book my own scan, when i seen the midwife at my booking it she told me that it had all changed and that in preston you now book your own scan between 11 and 14 weeks, so i called to make the app for just before my 12 weeks and got told that they only do them after 12 weeks. stupid that they tell you and send a letter saying they will scan from 11 weeks 2 days but when you ring to make an app they tell you its from 12... no wonder people get confused!!

    Hey Mrs Woolf by any chance are you in Aberdeen? Cause I am and i turned 11 weeks yesterday and have still not received my date. I rang the hospital scanning dept yesterday and they said they are so busy right now that there is a back log. They also said that it will be closer to 13 weeks or possibly 13 & 1/2 weeks before i get my scan and i probably wont even receive my letter till im 12 weeks. But she also said to ring back on friday if i havent heard. It's just so frustrating, i've waited so long i dont feel i have it in me to wait any longer grrrrrrrrr

    My letter says you can phone and change your appointment if its not suitable but I think it would depend what times they have free when you call. x
