Question: How early can a dating scan be done?

Can you get a dating scan at 5 weeks?

Can you have a dating scan at 10 weeks?

Youll have a dating scan appointment, also known as a 12-week scan, between about 10 weeks and 14 weeks of pregnancy. This is usually the first scan youll have, so its likely to be a significant moment for you. Youll only have a scan before 10 weeks in certain situations.
