    got my scan date...have to sort it out though cause the secretary at the hospital as double booked me...my scan and consultant appt is exactly the same time!

    It says on the letter that you no longer need a full bladder for the scan,....do you think they have a new machine?

    I'm really curious.... think i might ask when i call tomorrow what the score is, since i have to sort out the appointments...

    I would be very surprised if the consultant runs to time. Mine couldn't even start the first appointment on time!

    lol

    well my experience of doctors is that they always run late, lol, i really hope I have the scan first though :D but, i know this is stupid, I'm terrified incase they say there's noting there! I suppose the first few months of pregnancy is all just symptoms though isn't it?

    grr, why can't the NHS be like USA and Oz? A scan every 4 weeks!

    Oh that would be gr8. S'pose 'cos there its done on health insurance where we have the good ole NHS.

    I'm sure everything will be fine. I always worry b4 a scan incase they can't find anything or can't find heartbeat.

    I couldn't see it straight away with lo and was panicing but what seemed like eternity sonographer pointed it out.
