Hi. I don't have my 8wk scan til 22nd Oct. I have such mixed emotions. Mostly, I honestly just feel sad when I think about it. I want to get it over and done with. With my last MC, it was a total surprise as I had all the pregnancy symptoms. I'm just so scared of it happening all over again. I feel like my symptoms have continued longer so far, but I still just feel sad about the scan. I have tried to prepare myself for the worst, but lets be honest,none of us can truly prepare ourselves for such heartache.
I haven't really read anyone feeling sad when they think about having their first scan. Am I alone? Xx
Nope I was petrified last time around at all 3 scans. I hate having scans I cant get past the feelings from the first 3 I had which were all bad. Even though with C I ended up having 5 all told in the end, I was scared each time even on the 35 week one
I wish we could both just enjoy it Mizzie. I'm hoping maybe the 20wk scan I might be able to relax enough to enjoy. With both my MC its been discovered on the first scan. We'll just have to send each other heaps of positive vibes when it's our turn and hope for the best. Have you booked yours yet? Xx
Wow! Seeing her hair is soo cool! With my DD, I only saw one scan that wasn't the grey grainy image and that was the 20wk scan. It Was awesome to see so much more detail. I Guess more fear in the beginning is normal. I'm sure as time progresses, we'll get more comfortable with it. Xx
im glad i found this im both looking forward to and dreading my scan, i have it next tues. i had mmc on first preg and had 3 scans before they and i were sure she wasnt growing so now scans in my head mean scary news . lets hope this time its good news , not scary news. i think il cry either way i just heard from a girl on here she had her first scan today and she is same amount preg as me and she saw 2 heartbeats , she is having twins, so it can be good news too hope it is for us xxxxxxxxxxx
lilesmom I seem to be following you in threads lol
I'm the same, not got a date for 1st scan yet but midwife app not till im 11 weeks but I'm already worrying told my partner I don't want to go for a scan as part of me doesn't want to know/can't bear bad news again. I can see it all in my head walking in the room when I had my 1st scan last time and it all went wrong. It's so scary but we have to stay strong and hope for the best!
Wishing you ladies all the luck in the world I'm sure we are all worrying over nothing (fx'd)
they r making u wait the meanies, xx would u go for private scan to reassure urself, i didnt think i would get an early scan but i did thank god i was gonna go for a private one if not. there is no reason we shouldnt be fine, im sick of worry , it can feck off easier said than done some days ha ha xxxxxxx
best of luck guys xxxxxxxxxx
Well when I asked my doc about an early scan he said unless I had bad cramps or bleeding I wouldn't get an early scan and right now I can't afford a private one. I'm phoning my docs tomorrow going to tell him how anxious I feel and see if he will arrange a scan..i need to know either way whats happening! I'm just cautious that I might have my dates wrong and be earlier than I thought and don't want to go for a scan to not see anything..by my LMP im 7ish weeks but surely even if i was only 5-6 they could still see something? Anyways I'm hoping to get some answers tomorrow xx
if all else fails cry wolf , who can tell if u really do have spotting r not xx
the worry is exhausting in its self, it would be nice to have reassurance
best of luck, hope they help u hon, let us know how u get on xxx
