If you managed to wait until 12 weeks then there's not much point in getting a scan between the 12 and 20 week scan. By 12 weeks she's extremely unlikely to miscarry iirc. Less than 1%. A lot of people will get an early scan privately before 12 weeks just for the peace of mind of knowing how things are going.
If you'd like a private scan from now on you'd be better off waiting until around 28 weeks and getting a 3d scan done as this is the best time for them. After around 30 weeks the baby gets too big to see much with them unless you get lucky.

Cheers all, very informative, Mojo i thought you would have forgotten all that stuff at this stage ;)

Haha we mentioned it Eric but she is kinda anti marriage. We ain't gonna rush into it for the sake of it, but if it does happen it will probably resemble a shotgun jobbie.

Turtle, we thought there might be a month or whatever after coming off the pill, obviously we were aware it could happen, didn't think the little swimmers would be so accurate and determined so quickly! Must have been like the week after or day even!

But sure you can get caught if you miss a day of the pill. You're supposed to use other forms of contraception for a week if she misses a day.

We had 2 scans. One very quick one to say "yep theres a heartbeat" no better than listening for it really. 2nd one was the big one, 28 weeks get the whole lot looked at, measure all the limbs and stuff. Unless you have complications I don't think you need much more than that.

Dunno if anyones said it to yis but if you get pregnant really quick after coming off the pill apparently its difficult to figure out when the baby is due accurately.

Oh right, I just assumed it'd be 20 weeks because that's when our "anatomy" scan was. She started feeling the kicks properly around 20 weeks as well so there was no need for any other scans as it was fairly obvious how things were going.

Yeah I think there were a few dates thrown about.

The girl doing the 12 week scan seemed to think the date was pretty accurate though.

We also saw legs flailing about and all at that stage, nice little picture and all!

Think I'll not be pushing the extra scan unless as you say complications. She has mentioned it though so we shall see.

My sister went "private" and said the equipment used was like something out of Lost, wayyy older than the stuff the public scans use.

Well private is about €4000 and a scan is only €300-400 so if she wants a scan or two for peace of mind just cough it up yourself I reckon.

Oh and book yourself some private pre-natal classes. The free ones in the hospital are shite.
