Scan done, just waiting to see the consultant now. Baby measuring one day behind and a small bleed near to baby but they said they aren't worried at all. Got to see baby moving around which was just the best. Dating scan is on the 6th but will probably have another scan in the middle.

Good luck to everyone with scans this week. Thinking of you all.

Fantastic news Maryanne and good you have an in- between scan before your 12 week one

I am mega paranoid as only got my kittens two weeks before I got my bfp so I am having myself tested for toxoplasmosis. My OH thinks I am crazy. On a good note, I will know the results within 4 hours.

I am spending a fortune on private scans and tests, ooooops.

I think when you have had multiple losses it's worth it! X

Sweetkat - I totally understand wanting extra tests and scans. You have had multiple losses, anyone would need some reassurance in your situation. I say, if you can afford it, go for it. I'm sure you are fine regarding toxoplasmosis though. I think it is pretty rare and I assume you haven't been the one scooping the litter. I wouldn't worry, but I'm glad you are able to get quick results to ease your mind.

I'm still nervous about my scan tomorrow. I feel silly. We heard the heartbeat on Saturday, I should be confident. I think it is just the thought of going back to the same place with the same doctor. I can't shake the memory of being on that table being told there was no heartbeat.

It isn't silly karoolia to feel that way. I am going out of my way and booking scans with different companies, because I don't want the memories that I had with my previous scans. Even the good scans, I am just scared of memories of his pregnancy will trigger me into a complete meltdown.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. I seriously considered going elsewhere for that very reason, but my OB is known by pretty much everyone to be the best in the area. With DH having worked with most of them and only really feeling confident sending me to this guy, it was just too hard to refuse and see someone else.

Fortunately (assuming this goes well) any future pregnancies will be after we move back to Canada so it will feel like a fresh start.

Not silly to feel that way at all. I still can't into our epu for the exact same reason. Any scans are difficult for me but I know I couldn't cope with another scan there. Good luck to you and Kirsty for tomorrow

So in case anyone else is worried about toxoplasmosis - mine came negative for historical and current infection and I had cats for a year when I was young and for 4 years in my twenties. I always cleaned the litter tray in my twenties.

I also had beef tartare and Parma ham and the odd medium rare stake (before pregnancy). Anyway, guessing you would have to be unlucky to catch it.

From now on OH is cleaning the litter tray
