    Hey, need to know others thoughts.

    Went for mid-wife appointment on the 6th april who said she would send my info to the hospital and they will send me a ltr with the scan date, which is fine. i was wondering how long it would take to get this ltr? (for 12 week scan)

    Most people seem to have done things completely differently or have brought earlier scans, but if anyone has done it the same way i have, how long did it take for you to get your letter through? Or did the mid-wife just tell you the date or did you get a phone call??

    Thanks in advance! :-D

    Hey - I waited 2 weeks then phoned the antenatal clinic and they said they had put a letter in the post that day - they gave me the date over the phone... If you're worried that they have forgotten give the clinic a ring (I got through using the hospital switchboard). x

    I was given my scan date while at my booking in appointment. I'd give them a ring for peace of mind.

    I saw mine the same time as you, my MW told me to wait 10 working days and if it still had not arrived to phone the hospital.

    Mine took nearly two weeks I think. However, the date they gave me was just the first one available which would be when I was 17 weeks! I just rang them and they changed it over the phone, I don't know if they do it in your area but just remember that if your having an NT scan it has to be done before 13 weeks and 6 days.

    My letter took about a week to arrive but my letter was just to say 'call us to make an appointment' so slightly different I suppose. Give it 7 working days and then give them a call I reckon.

    My letter didn't come in for weeks lol! I was starting to get really irritated, I think i saw the doc at 5 weeks and my letter for my booking in and dating scan came at about 9 weeks. My appointment itself was two weeks later at 11 weeks.

    I paid for an early private scan just for personal reasons.

    Grrrr... I just chased mine up through the hospital to be told that they've "only just put it on the system". I've got to wait until 11th May now, which will put me almost at 15 weeks... Am so mad and upset, as it'll probably mean that I probably won't get a 20-week scan as it's so close to it. The health care in my area seriously sucks.
    Going to investigate where the closest place is for getting a private scan is now as I don't think I can wait that long...
