How dating scans work


I often get asked for issues that I may have uploaded in the past; your first stop should be The Aeromodeller Index Project   This is  project by Colin Usher and resides on his website NOT mine. Colin has a lot of other magazines and information on his site, and it is well worth a look around, he also graciously hosts all the zip files I have uploaded in the past since I started. Again, if you download from that site and things are not as that are supposed to be, please contact Colin in the first instance.

The dating scan is usually done at some point between 8 weeks and 14 weeks pregnant . NICE recommends it's done between 10 weeks and 13 weeks. You will have had earlier appointments and may have had an early scan if you've had any concerns such as bleeding , but otherwise this is the first time you'll get to see your baby, so it's a real milestone in your pregnancy.

Your midwife may recommend an early scan at between six weeks and 1. You may also be offered an early scan if you've had a previous miscarriage. Not all units offer an early scan if all is going well in this pregnancy, though. Ask your GP if you want the reassurance of an early scan. She may be able to refer you.
