My first one is next Wednesday. I'll be 6w5d, and I'm excited but soooo nervous. The one ultrasound we had, at almost 9 weeks, we found out about mmc and DH was so upset because he saw the baby on the screen and thought all was well until the tech. said she couldn't find a heartbeat. I am also having symptoms with much more rigor than ever before, and my numbers have been rising steadily. I'm trying to stay positive and remember that we have done everything possible this time around.
That's the horrible part isn't it. Seeing the baby and then being told there's no heartbeat. I'm literally dreading my scan now. The hospital we go to holds such bad memories for me. I literally feel sick when I see the scanning room I don't want to wish away my pregnancy but I just want to get past 18 weeks and then I can relax a little.
I'm the same. I hate scans wish I could just be excited. I'm more anxious this pregnancy than I've ever been before. I have my booking in at 7 weeks too, you in the UK?
Yes I'm in the uk, near Cambridge.
I really can't decide what to do re scans. Wait until 12 weeks and live in ignorant bliss or just get it over and done with at 8 weeks. I've got a big wedding to go to in London at 11 weeks so if I get bad news at 8 weeks....but I can't miss it as I'm the hairstylist too lol.
I'm in the same position, I've got a scan next week but really not sure if I should cancel and move it to 8 weeks. Cause then if there's a heartbeat I will see it. I'm scared of being in that not knowing what's happening limbo again.
8 weeks is a good time for a scan though so If it were me I'd go, do you think you would enjoy the wedding if you waited or would it still cause you worry not knowing? Such a hard desicion. Just do what's best for you
Hiya girls, just seen this thread and although some of us are on the nuggets page thought I'd poke my head in and say hi sorry for your losses ladies, I understand the fear of scans, it was Nov 2015 at my 12 week scan that my MMC was discovered, most soul destroying moment of my life
I'm due 1st November but always on the lookout for mc signs booked a private scan for next Thursday to see how we're doing but so so scared
Hiya and welcome! Congrats on your bfp. I started this thread as I just find it easier especially in the early days to chat to other ladies who have been through losses. Wouldn't want to bring anyone down or scare any other mummies to be with anxieties I have.

Good luck for your scan!
Think we should name the group ladies? Any ideas?
I don't know about the name, but I feel more comfortable in this group and the other BFP after loss group I'm on now. Not that Nuggets is a problem, but I it is harder to relate to people with multiple children at home who aren't too worried about loss while DH and I are still waiting for our rainbow. I'm so excited for all the BFPs all over BandB though! I hope I don't sound harsh...
Honestly, I had trouble keeping up with all the posts too That's only b/c it is trickier for my to hop on during the day while I'm at school.
