Is anybody else REALLY scared about going to their dating scan?
Last year I had a scan at 9.5 weeks to be told I'd MMC'd @ 6 weeks and although I've already had two scans this pregnancy I'm absolutely crapping myself about going to my dating scan on July 5th and being told there's something wrong
I just can't get it out of my head. Last time my body showed absolutely no sign of MC until 3 weeks after my baby had stopped growing... I just can't go through that again
I'm literally a nervous wreck just thinking about it...
No you are not alone, I have had one scan last week and seen the heartbeat and everything looked good but I am terrified already for the next scan. According to me LMP I am what my ticker says but I think I am a week behind almost as I have a 34 day cycle so baby was a little smaller then the dating below. On top of that I don't go to the actual doctor until 2 more weeks so I paid for a private scan just to see something
Of course I'm scared. You're not alone
I saw the HB at 6+4 and the baby stopped developing at 7+1.
Our scan this time is at 7+2 and I'm terrified. I'm afraid to move the scan forward and maybe have the same thing happen, but at the same time I'm afraid this scan will show the same as last.
I'm terrified, I just want to be oblivious to everything and go for the 12 week scan when everything should be OK.
((hugs)) This totally stinks
You are so not alone. We to went through a MMC in dec. We were SO excited on the 2hr drive to our scan, only to find out minutes in that there was definatly not a 13 week fetus in there. We were crushed. However we got pregnant in January. I was terrified to go to my 1st u/s at 6 weeks. Then at 10 weeks on holidays I had a bleeding episode, we were scared but had no choice but to keep positive till we got home to see our dr. I still had 2 weeks before my 12 week u/s, so the dr office squeezed me in to check me out since I had a mc before. I was 2 early to hear a heartbeat on doppler so I had to wait till my u/s. It took everything in me to stay positive for my dh sake but I was scared. It was a relief when the u/s tech showed us a strong hb! We are now 23 weeks, expecting a ds if the tech was right, and got to hear his hb at todays dr appt. Music to my ears. Its scary I know especially cafter a mmc, but try not to stress its not good for you and bagy. Everything will be good. Just keep positive and try and relax and enjoy. Easier said than done I know!
