    I have seen a lot of you talking about your first scan. Is this something they always do or only do in certain cases? If they do a first scan...when do they usually do it...at your first doctor's visit or later on?

    Hi Moonpieash, usually you get your first scan at your first docs appointment so they can tell exactly how far along you are. Typically it is at least 6-10 weeks after your last period.

    I had one at five weeks only because I was experience pain on my ovary so they had to r/o ectopic pregnancy or else I would have had to wait till 9 weeks.
