    Ive got my scan at 2pm and Ive been awake half the night..I feel physically sick with fear..especially after my gender scan on friday where the sonographer didnt say anything..My MW has assured me that if the sonographer at the private scan had spotted anything obvious she would say..but Im still convinced Im going to get bad news:cry..

    I was so ill with hyperemesis that I couldnt take my folic acid tablets so thats a worry..also before I knew I was pregnant I was taking a tablet which isnt suitible for use in pregnancy...Im sat here literally shaking with fright

    Try not to worry hon, I was in the same position having been given a high risk for DS and declining a CVS - so my 20 week scan was very important to us too. Everything turned out just fine and it was the most enjoyable scan to date, they went to great trouble and immense detail when looking to check all her bits and bobs were healthy. Let them know before hand what has happened and that you are very nervous as they will be really patient and reassuring for you xx

    week behind hunni is normal, anything up to two weeks is normal. You'll see that some organs will be developed a week or two ahead and some will be behind and some on target. Don't worry xx I was terrified too but that's so normal!!! and exciting! Seize the moment, this is a very precious memory - you won't have an experience like that again: finding out bubs gender and seeing everything in smallest detail, even little fingers.. It will be so cute.
