I actually have no idea how far along I am...I went with the first day of my last period it would put me at 6 weeks.
Sometimes it is requested by a doctor or midwife to confirm that your pregnancy is healthy (in this case your scan is often called a viability scan) and to calculate the date when your baby is due (usually referred to as a dating scan).
It can be also performed to confirm the results of a pregnancy test or just to provide you with some reassurance that all is progressing as it should.

Please Note: If baby isn’t in a suitable position to obtain the best images possible, we may ask you to take a short gentle walk in the local area so please allow extra time on your visit to Essex Ultrasound.
Hi ladies, just after some advice Had a letter today for my dating scan, its on the 1st April but I will only be 10 4, that seems too early??
I'm wandering if they have made a mistake, should I call them and ask or just go and see what happens...??The senior member of staff walked in, didn't ask us any questions, how far along we were, any kind of past history, or anything like this, didn't even look at the notes, put the scanner on and kind of after scanning around for a bit, took the scanner off and started saying, 'Well, why have you come this early?' And it was like, 'Well, what do you mean, why have we come this early?For those mums to be who can’t wait to see their baby before the NHS 20 weeks scan.Please call the Practice on 01 to book your appointment.Waiting a few weeks will allow you to see more, and if all looks good at 8 weeks you will be reassured to know the chance of miscarriage is very low.
