    I had my first scan at my obstetricians office at 9 weeks. My GP offered a dating scan when I had my bloods done at 5 weeks but I wanted to wait as I didn't want the scenario of 'too early to see anything, wait 1 week'. So I just waited for the Ob visit which was just a bedside scan, and she saw a HB easily. My first formal ultrasound was the 12 week one.

    As soon as my bloods come back positive my GP sent me for a 'viability scan'
    I had my first at what I thought would have been 8w. Bubby's HR was only 70bpm which was too low for an 8w fetus, so they told me to expect to lose her and to come next week for a follow up scan.
    The following week bubby's HR was 161bpm! Turns out she was a week younger than we thought so the first scan was actually 7w and the HR would have been ok for that gestational age.
    IMO, to avoid unwanted stress I'd say don't go too early. If you are now on 6/7 weeks I'd wait a fortnight before you go. I know it would be hard to do but atleast that way you'll have an established HR.

    I've always had mine at 12 weeks and 20 weeks.

    If you need a dating scan, than you may have one earlier than 12 weeks and if complications arise, you may have several over the course of 9 months.

    With my first I had my first scan at 19 weeks.
    With my second I had a dating scan early on just because I wasn't too sure of dates. I could have just waited for the 18-20 week scan though.

    I don't know! needless to say I wont be following doctors orders and getting rid of my beloved dog...she will probably be the one who keeps me sane over the coming months! I think the doctors reasoning was they carry disease, I don't think he has been living in Australia long so maybe in his home country dogs can have rabies and things??!

    Omg please don't listen to that. Don't get a new cat or change kitty litter. No issues with dogs!
