Calling all who have fell pregnant straight after miscarriage ...

I'm desperately trying to work out a rough due date but coming up with 7 or 9 weeks and am hoping to get more advice.

How did they measure your due date if you had no period in between your miscarriage? Xxx

They will need to do a scan to know for sure. If you are 7-9 weeks, you think, you can get a private scan done. Otherwise, I would aim for your 12 week scan around the time when you think you'll be 12 weeks and they can date you then. It's unlikely you'd get an early NHS scan just because you don't know your dates, but you never know, and it might be worth asking, especially if you want the nuchal scan and you need your dates for that.

I had to go for an early dating scan. If I’d have taken the mc as my LMP I would’ve been around 8 weeks but when I was scanned I was around 5 weeks.

Congratulations & good luck for the rest of your pregnancy flowers

Congrats on your pregnancy though! I didn't fall pregnant before getting a period (got one period after my mc and then we started trying). Frankly, I needed a break and to drink a lot of prosecco for a month. But I was pregnant that next month and am now 23 weeks. It's been a really lovely and straightforward and very healing pregnancy. Hope it's the same for you.

I had an early NHS scan because I didn’t know my dates. I actually sort of did because I had just stopped breastfeeding and fell pregnant before my first period arrived, so I told the midwife at my booking appt I had a rough idea but was sent for an early scan at 8ish weeks anyway, then had the standard dating scan at 12 weeks.

Its probably different because mine was only a chemical pregnancy (6 weeks) so I just counted the first day I started bleeding as the first day of my cycle I ovulated later than I usually do but concived right away my dates were pretty much bang on.

I just waited till my 12 week scan. I did try and convince the NHS midwife I should have an early scan but she wasn't persuaded. I found it a worrying pregnancy but loved it once I could feel baby moving.

I gave the date of the first day of misc, instead of period. I was scanned early at 7 weeks. According to their scan measurements, i was was only two days out.

I've got pregnant straight away after the two miscarriages. I had an early scan as I hadn't had a scan after the miscarriages and they wanted to check I hadn't lost a twin and one was still there.
It wasn't the case either time and both continued to be successful pregnancies.
Congratulations flowers

The gp referred me for an early dating scan as I had no LMP date and they needed a rough idea to time the booking in appointment right. Had a scan that showed I was only 5 weeks and had another a couple of weeks later when there was more to see so they could get a better estimate. Estimated due date changed again at my 12 week dating scan.

You can. I was temping so knew when I had ovulated but yes... how far on was the mc?
