I was being treated at a fertility clinic, so I am probably the exception rather than the rule. We had our first u/s at 7w5d. The “norm” , for us Cdn bees from what I am aware, is the 12 week scan usually being the first.

Hope this helps!

i was also treated at a fertility clinic and had my first scan at 7w+3d. I think sometimes between 10-12 weeks is the norm though. Good luck!!!!

Mine was at 20 weeks. They offered a dating one at the beginning but I was sure of my dates. The norm for this area is 18-22 weeks. You only get the one unless there’s a reason for more.

I had my first ultrasound at 12w when they scanned for Down’s syndrome, and the second at 19w when they did the anatomy scan. Unless we have complications I won’t get to see LO again until he/she comes out to meet us.

Mine will be 6+6, I could have had it earlier, but chose to wait. But it is to date because I have irregular cycles, but I’m sure of my dates too.

I could have gone at 6 weeks for the early dating scan but I opted to go at 8 weeks. I wanted the baby to be a little further along and know for sure there would be a heartbeat 🙂

Mine will be tomorrow at 13weeks 2days! Should have had one at around 7-8 weeks for accurate dating though.

mine was at 19 weeks for anatomy scan. i opted out of the 12 week NT scan.  there are places where you can pay to get a scan privately at any time you want though.

@Serey:  The U/S place I was sent to said they do the first (called the dating U/S) at 8 weeks, so you are far enough along to hear the heart and get measurements etc. I have no complications or history of complications. I went at 7w4d and turns out baby measured at 6w5d, but could clearly see heartbeat and everything was fine. Baby measured less than 1 cm, so they switched to a transvag U/S for better measurements. Dating U/S are a new thing- they didn’t have these 2 years ago when I had DS. My first U/S then was around 11 weeks.

@Serey:  I had an eight-week dating scan because of my irregular cycles then a 12 week then finally a 20 week scan. If my cycles weren’t all over the map then I would have probably just had the 12 week and 20 week. (Ontario)

@little_d:  How did you feel after the transvaginal? I had mine this morning at 6+6, baby measuring 6+2, feeling a little achy now.
