    I went to the Dr Tuesday, Midwife rang Thursday to get the info required to book me in or my scan. She said I should get a letter in the post in the next fortnight and the scan should be end of June, beginning of July. My booking in appointment is Friday, here they fill in the forms for the scans before the booking in.

    I had MW appt at 7+4 (got to go back for bloods at 9+4) and scan appt arrived exactly a week later and my NT/dating scan is 1/7 and I'll be 12+4 Hoped I'd be sooner as had a MC but have to be patient and wait or go private!

    If I recall correctly, I think she sent me a letter within a couple of days. Before she'd seen me, she'd given my name to the local hospital, and then it was just a case of them giving me an appointment. I've heard of people waiting up to 10 days for their letter/phone call though. The date for my 21 week scan was given to me at my 12 week scan; they wrote it in my notes

    My midwife actually called the scan department during my booking appointment and booked it there and then! Different trusts will do it differently I guess :)

    I went to the doctors at 6 weeks, got my 1st m/w appt and nuchal scan appt via letter, the m/w appt is 8th June when i'll be 11 weeks and the scan (which i assume is also dating scan?) is 20th when i'll be nearly 13 weeks.

    Back in January I had my booking in appointment arranged for 25th Jan and I received a letter with my scan date for 14th Feb (exactly 12 weeks by my dates) but unfortunately I didn't make it to either appointment as I miscarried.

    This time round things seem so much slower, I'm 11 weeks today and I've only got my booking in appointment this Thursday and still haven't heard anything about my scan. I was hoping to have it next week but i'm not very hopeful at the moment. So desperate to see my little seedling and check everything ok.

    I think mine may have been forgotten judging by some answers. I had my booking app 2 wks ago tommorrow. Had the bloods, family history etc.. still no scan date tho :( Have my hen on sat and was hoping to explain away my not drinking with an anouncement! Guess as I'll be 12 wks by then and feeling very defo preggers maybe I should tell everyone anyway! x
