You'd be extremely lucky to make your deadline with a K1 (or any other marriage based visa) given the speed of US bureaucracy. If fact, if you file now I'd say you were pretty likely to be stuck in London for the interview/medical round about the time the baby is due.

But if you've decided on the K1 route, your fiancée needs to file an I-129f to get the ball rolling. Estimate 8-10 months until you have the visa in your hand.

thanks for the reply, is there another route to go instead of the k1, and would i be able to leave the country whilst i apply for a k1

Another suggestion....
Apply for your K1...
While you're waiting for your fiancee visa, you can still visit the US on a VWP.
You can be there for the birth of your baby... as long as you return to Scotland after, to wait for your fiancee visa.
