With DS I only had a 8 week dating scan and the 20wk anatomy scan and didn't have to pay for either. And if we did choose to have the nuchal one I think that would have been free too. I also had 4 growth scans at the end which were free.
As long as you have a referal from midwife or GP.
The 12 week scan will be exciting for you, they actually look like tiny babies then.
I'm considering trying to delay my dating scan till after we go away in January, which will be about 12 weeks. But I don't know if I can wait that long, and it would be good to see that everything is alrite before we tell family at Xmas.
Going to try organise a midwife today, hopefully early enough to get my first choice.
I feel so much more relaxed about it all second time round. If I didnt want a particular midwife and need a dating scan I would probably wait till after our holiday to sort n e thing.
