I had one with DS2 because I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks with the baby before him, and I didn't want to wait until 12 weeks to see if the pregnancy was viable. It was basically for peace of mind.

I can understand why people do. I was never offered one with all three pregnancies tho.

I went for a dating scan with DD (currently pregnant) & glad I did because I was 3days further along then we thought.

I was certain of my LMP. I had some bleeding at 6 weeks and had a scan to check the position of bub (to rule out ectopic) turns out my dates we around 7-10 days out as I ovulated late in my cycle. I'm happy I had that scan because then I could book my 12 week scan using the right dates.

My Dr didnt believe me! After being told we couldnt have children naturally.

Last two bubs were with 5 months of my previous births & had no clue...
My first I had one due to a dr telling me I wasn't UTD, went to another who ordered the scan after 4 bfp from poas.

Like previous posters after a missed miscarriage (I found out I'd lost bub at six weeks when I was twelve weeks along) I needed to know. Especially when I'd had spotting.
The psychological effect of a missed miscarriage was devastating for me. I would also opt for a dating scan in future pregnancies, even if 100% sure of conception date.

I think sometimes it's for viability, particularly for those with a history of m/c. After my 2 losses, if I get pg again I will be getting one around the 7-8 week mark to make sure it's growing, not in my tube etc.
But I have noticed the dating scan has become the majority now even for women who know their dates.
