How long before your 12 week scan did you get a letter?

I'm 10 weeks tomorrow. Filled in a form at the GP surgery at 8 weeks, but haven't heard anything from the midwife and no scan letter. Do I phone and ask, or is it too early for a letter still?

I got mine about a week after my booking appointment so if nothing comes by end of week give them a ring smile

Only about a week before. Had booking in at 10 weeks then scan at 12+1

Same as sandwich bag for me, booking in at 10+3, scan at 12+3

I had to chase for my booking appointment because the midwife at my surgery had left. It should be at around 10 weeks so I'd give your surgery a call to check all is in order. Once I'd had my booking I got a letter with a scan date, I can't remember how long was in between but I was more like 13/14 weeks when I had the dating scan.

I got mine on the Friday at 12 weeks and scan was three days later on the Tuesday. I was chasing like mad to see if they'd received it and knew it was in hand so I wouldn't worry. A bit more notice would have been nice though.

I got my letter at 6 weeks which was a bit of a surprise but I think that might be because I'd already been booked in for an early scan at 7 weeks. My booking in appointment isn't until next week so probably a bit unusual!

About 8 days, my hospital like to make you wait! I had my booking in appt at 9 weeks, scan at 12+1.

My later scans have all been booked at short notice as well, one growth scan I had two days notice!

You've nothing to lose by ringing to chase up. My booking appointment was booked at 6 weeks to take place in my tenth week, scan was arranged during that app for in my twelth week.

When I found out I was pregnant, at around 4weeks, I called the GP office and they gave me the phone number to local MW Community Health Centre. I called them up, and made my booking appointment and first scan appointment at the same time. So I've known my scan date for least 6weeks now.

I had my booking in appointment at just gone 10wks then finally got my scan letter with a date last week (when I nearly 12wks) but my scan date is when I will be 13wk+4 as my NHS trust say they only do them 2 days a week which probably doesn't help.

2 weeks, but my scan isn't until nearly 14 weeks!

I saw my midwife at 6 weeks and had my scan date given to me at the booking appointment. Really efficient

I was given a phone number at my booking in appointment to ring and arrange my own scan, which worked out well as I could pick times around work & childcare etc... I guess it depends on where you live.

I only got mine about a week before (was 13 weeks when scanned). I second the phoning them up and asking - they won't mind they will be used to it
