It's more common to be told you're less far along than you thought you were, rather than that you're actually further along in the pregnancy.

You may also be offered a nuchal translucency test at this appointment.

Not all areas offer this test as routine but when it is offered it is usually done at the 12-week scan.The scan is primarily for dating but the sonographer will also look in on a few more things at the same time.Here are the main checks they'll be making: Your baby will be measured and the exact stage of pregnancy will be calculated from the measurement made from crown to rump.NICE recommends it's done between 10 weeks and 13 weeks.You will have had earlier appointments and may have had an early scan if you've had any concerns such as bleeding, but otherwise this is the first time you'll get to see your baby, so it's a real milestone in your pregnancy.
