Hi most women get their first scan at 12 weeks and then 20 weeks but can pay for a private one before then. You might also be referred for a scan early if you have bleeding or any other symptoms that are worrying you (mild cramping you've had is normal). Have you rung your surgery to get a booking in appointment with a midwife? That's normally around 7-9 weeks but can vary and doesn't involve scanning but is a good chance to ask lots of questions.

Have you booked in with midwife? As they are the ones that book the dating scan. If you want the scan to look for things like downs then this will need to be booked by 14 weeks I think

Why don't you check out one of the many pregnancy specific web sites, week by week info. Are you familiar with "the bump" or "baby centre"? Lots of accurate info available.
