Hi everyone,

I'm 14+1 weeks pregnant and went for my official dating scan last Wednesday. As im type 1 diabetic and already had a miscarriage I had a scan at 10 weeks as well.

Everything looked great and the sonographer even mentioned that everything looked fine and said i would have another scan at 18 and 22 weeks due to being diabetic.

Well oddly I received a scan appointment for 16 weeks and a further appointment the week prior for the fechal medical clinic.

I am panicking something is wrong and thats why appointments have been brought forward but surely they would phone me in advance? I want to think it would be deemed cruel to make a woman wait weeks to hear bad news but i cant shame a feeling of dred.

Help sad

I'd call them about it. Probably an admin error, or there might not have been an appointment at 18 weeks so they're doing it early.

Sounds like you've been booked in with a consultant due to your diabetes ... or you have received an appointment that is meant for someone else. A quick call to the midwife will verify if she has referred you for assessment to see if you will be consultant or midwife led smile
