Thanks ladies. I was getting so anxious and upset last night that DH went to the hospital and chatted with the emergency doctor who was on. It turned out that he knew him well and the doctor was a really nice guy who said to bring me and that they would be ready when we got there (finally paid off to have a husband in training to be a doctor).

They were so nice to me. Vastly different from my last experience. Things got really busy just as we were finishing up and we ended up waiting hours for the Rhogam (anti-D) they wanted to give me, but it was definitely worth it.

I even have baby pictures! They aren't close up, but you can still see him/her!

I'm really kicking myself for not asking for a pic at my last scan. I was just so overwhelmed I totally forgot to ask!

Oh, I didn't think to ask either. The Emerg doc was just really nice and brought them to me on his own. I was really happy because the tech who did the scan didn't let me see the screen at all.

I have a shot of the screen which dr at the hospital made me take to calm me down and 2 pics from the last ultrasound. You can't see that much at this stage - at 12 weeks it already looks like a proper baby

Tell me about it. It's dragging. Not even 6 weeks till Wednesday. I don't want to wish the pregnancy away and not enjoy it but I just can't wait to get past 19 weeks.

Can I ask your opinion ladies. I'm having a wobble over when I've booked my scan. My scan at the moment is booked for a week Saturday when I will be 7+3. But now I'm so worried that I'm considering changing it to next sat when I will only be 6+3. But not sure if it's a good idea when in my last two pregnancies I've havent seen a heartbeat at week six and had a week or two of limbo. I know I couldn't deal with that again but I keep thinking the private clinic machines are better than the epu machines. If you were me what would you do?

I would stick with 7 weeks hun unless you really need reassuring. The stress and worry of not seeing a heartbeat makes you feel 100 times worse. But I had my scan I was meant to be 7 weeks and baby was measuring exactly 6 weeks and seen heartbeat x

I went at 6&3 with second MMc - could tell from then it would be an MMc as baby measured week and a half behind.

Third MMC also went at 6&3 and there was a hb but first reaction at EPU was that baby measured 5 weeks. She then said 5&6. At 7 weeks it was 2 days behind and at 8 weeks I was told everything was perfect but that was trisomy 21 miscarriage. I have no idea whether the baby did measure a lot smaller because of trisomy 21 or whether that was a coincidence.

This time I went at 6&6 and measured 7&1.

It's so hard to know what to do. I am having a paranoid day today and convinced this is going to be another miscarriage

So hard being pregnant without knowing if there is a baby at the end of it

All my babies measure behind at the start but catch up later so I'm thinking that's another reason to wait for the scan. I'm just having a wobble tonight and I'm thinking the worst. These next few weeks till the scan are going to be hard.
