They seem to be fairly accurate , although the most they go up to is 3+ which is 5 weeks + so not much help if you're more than that Your GP should be able to offer you an early dating scan though and if you were 12 weeks or more they would be able to feel your uterus through your stomach , congratulations xx

when i had mine it was about half an hour of form filling and medical history, but iv heard a few women on here say its now an hour as they talk about domestic violence aswell.
my mw phoned the hospital there and then to make an appt for a scan, but others just have to wait for a letter in the post. but they will probably try and get you in ASAP to determine how far along you are.

Depends on procedure in your area, where I used to live they came to your house for it and it was an informal chat and just filling out some forms , could have been around an hour, can't really remember cos at my last one I knew the midwife as she'd delivered my previous baby so there was a fair bit of gossiping and catching up too He could have booked you an early dating scan direct with your local EPU though , and they can often be either that day or the next , might be worth ringing and asking about it as if you're 10 weeks your nuchal scan will be due soon and the midwives normally book that so it's not leaving much time xx

After some bleeding at the weekend I have had two scans and although no one has said any specific dates it looks like I am about 5 weeks.
On the first one I only had a little sack (Sunday morning)which they said meant I was about four weeks.
Then today I had a sack, yok and little fetus type blob! The doctor was a little suprised. But I'm thinking that must mean I'm a little further on than they thought.
What do we recon?

About 5-6 weeks they can often see the sac and fetal pole, and around 6 weeks onwards they can see the heartbeat , they do grow very very quickly in the first few weeks and someimes do it in spurts rather than a gradual pattern , just had a quick look and 15mm sounds spot on for around 5-6 weeks or so xx
