Hi, this is a really silly question I know but here goes....

I am anything between 10 and 16 weeks pregnant and because of that my midwife wanted to get me booked in for my scan pretty quickly.

I've just had a call booking me in for a nuchal scan tomorrow!
I know this is to look for potential risk of downs but will they look for the heartbeat also? And measure to see how many weeks I am?

yeah that's all done at the same scan. there is just a small window of opportunity to have the nuchal test done so the want to make sure you don't miss it. but you'll get too see the baby and heartbeat tomorrow too and they'll be able to date you!! smile
