I am only just over 5 wks pregnant.. should I have a scan at about 8 weeks, or is it normal only to have one at 12 weeks??? I have read so many times people have them alot early than 12 weeks?

Hi wendy, Its seems to depend on where you are from. Im from England and I know we dont have them here until 12 weeks then 20 weeks but i went to the Drs last week and they dont even do the 12 week one any more unless you want a trans nuchal scan to check for downs. Im having one at 8 wks as I asked for one because I had a miscarriage last year. But is seems that others are having them quite alot but I think they are from america but Im not sure.

this is my 3rd pregnancy and this is the first time i've had an ultra sound before 20 weeks. i had no idea when my last period was, so we needed a scan to date the pregnancy. your doctor will help you decide when the best time for an ultra sound is.

My dr doesn't normally schedule them until around 14 weeks, but I had a m/c a year ago, and some abnormal bleeding the last few months, so she scheduled one for me yesterday. I'm 5w5d (and USA).
