    I think having an early ultrasound is just to check to see how far along your are, or if you've had 1 or more miscarriages to see if everything is ok.

    Hey girls. Congrats on your pg's I had an ultrasound at 8 weeks because I had some bleeding. Otherwise I wouldn't have seen bubs until 12 weeks at the OB's.

    I'm sure everything is going along nicely. Have happy healthy pg's!

    CONGRATULATIONS on your pregnancies girls.

    With my 1st pregnancy I was sent by my GP for an ultrasound at 6 or so weeks, it may have been 8 actually. I'm not sure why as I hadn't had any trouble previously, I think they can send you if they want to, was all on Medicare.
    With my 2nd I paid for one at 8weeks as we wanted to see bubs heart beat b4 12 weeks.

    Hey baiza

    I had a scan at 6 weeks 2 days to check the heartbeat and the dates. They were shocked to see me in so early having no bleeding or any complications. I think because its my first my doctor wanted to see if all was ok. I wont worry if i was you if your docs ok with everything then it should be fine i know that feeling tho of just wanting to SEE that everything is ok. I think if you needed that reassurance ask your doc for one im sure it wouldnt be a problem.

    Hope you have a healthy happy pregnancy!!

    Hey girls.

    With my first, i waited until 12 wks. But with this one i just couldnt wait - i needed to see there was something in my uterus !!!!!! So i went to my local GP and just said i was unsure of my period date (i wasnt really, but a small lie never hurt anyone) so may i have a dating ultrasound.......I had an ultrasound at 8wks. Couldnt see much - well the sac and a heartbeat. But i slept soundly for the next few weeks knowing lil poppet was actually there......if your desperate/worried, go have one.

    I had a dating scan at 8weeks for both my pregnancys coz I fell pregnant both times on the pill. Most doctors should be happy to give you a referral, it's not as if its any extra work for them!
