    Hello all,

    I just wanted to ask when you all received your first scan? I ask because I've read on the NICE website and heard from other T1s that they got a scan at 8 weeks but I've been told I won't get one until 12 weeks.

    Thanks for any replies.

    I had a foetal viability scan at around 7weeks too, then routine dating scan at 12 weeks.

    I had my first scan at 12 weeks. According to my dr is depends when you find out your pregnant and when you see your doctor. If you find out quite early they would probably send you for a early scan but if not they will just send you at 12 weeks.

    Hello,

    I am 6.5 weeks. I had my first diabetic antenatal apparently appointment on Thursday as they are worried as I have had 2 previous miscarriages, 1 a few years ago whilst not diabetic and 1 in February just as I was diagnosed. I might ask my midwife when I see her next week.

    My first scan was at 12 weeks. I was offered one earlier but felt it wasn't necessary so I refused it.

    I'm having a viability scan on Tuesday, I'll be 7+6 pregnant. And a growth scan and foetal doppler scan on Wednesday.

    Not sure why 2 on different days though.
