Post subject: When should you have your first scan date ?
Hi, I'm 15-16 weeks pregnant with my first child. According to the books I've read, you should generally have your first scan done by week 12 and your second scan by week 20 ! How correct is this, has I still haven't heard any news about when my scan will be ? Should I be contacting the midwife to find out whether she has done this, or will I appear as being too pushy !?!

depends on the area. not all areas do a dating scan at around 12 weeks. with my first i only had a 20 week scan and that was around 22 weeks.

Post subject: scan
I would defo check this out. I had a dating scan at 13 weeks and then the scarily named abnormality scan at 20 weeks. I would have thought you would have had your first scan by now to confirm pregnancy, estimated date of arrival and also how many babies there are in there ! I believe it can alter depending on where you live, but i would question this with the medical people who are looking after you.

Good luck X
