is a dating scan different to the quick scan an ob/gyn will do in his office to check the heart beat etc??
the receptionist on the phone when i called up to book my first ob/gyn apt asked if i had had a dating scan and what my edd was? i said i hadnt had a scan yet and becuase i dont know when i ovulated and because i was on the pill before hand that my gp couldnt figure out my due date...
should i ask to have a dating scan before my ob/gyn apt?
or should i just go to my apt with an open mind? (the receptionist said he usually likes to see people around the 7/8 week mark and so we have guessed when this will be...)
my doctor is dating my pregnancy at roughly 3 weeks... and this is based on my lmp (when i was on the pill)
background: for the month of july and august i skipped the non active pills in my pack... then in sept i missed 1 tablet in the middle of the pack... took it when i remembered... continued with the pack then took the non active tablets (had a 'period', which was a bit lighter than i thought it would be) and then stopped my pill....
if you had to hazzard a guess what would you put my edd at?
first day of lmp was 22nd sept.
