Have my booking appt this week, just wanted to ask if a scan is included in this or is the baby somehow checked. Sorry if sounding ignorant but i am to all this

Hi chacha - Are you still up love?

I didn't have a scan with my booking appt - think they do that seperately on another day. They might arrange one on the appt? They might listen for babe's heart beat though. We don't get a 12 week scan where I live - we have to wait for 21 wks, so i'm really envious of all of you getting scans so soon!! Hope it goes well anyway, hope i've not disappointed you!!

Scan was booked separately to booking appt for us (in Middlesex). Dh came to first midwife appt anyway as it was lovely to hear the heartbeat over the doppler (sp?) for the first time, even though we couldn't see anything. Agree, give them a ring just to make sure.

Hi ChaCha

I was 10 weeks pg (maximum) when I had my booking appointment, the mw came out to our house for the appointment, so therefore didn't have a scan, nor did she listen to the heartbeat BUT I did have my first scan 2 weeks later. Unfortunately for me they put my EDD back 2 weeks!!

ChaCha i'm in glasgow so I dont know if our system is different but when I got my card through for my appt it told me on it that I would be getting a scan with the instructions do drink water etc before I go!
