I'm new here and 8 weeks pregnant. I've had my appointment come through for my first midwife appointment which is in about 4 weeks (eek!).
I'm really confused about whether I'll also be having my first ultrasound at the same appointment? There's info with the letter about the screening tests they'll be doing and taking a urine sample, but nothing about an ultrasound.
From everything I've read it says you should have your 'dating scan' around 8 -14 weeks, and your 'booking appointment' also 8 -14 weeks, so surely it makes sense to do the two at the same time?
If anyone can tell me the answer I'd really appreciate it! Need to know because my partner is self employed so it's difficult for him to take off work to come with me, but he definitely wants to if there will be an ultrasound at the same time.
Thanks loads! xx
