    Hello

    I am having my dating scan on Friday and I am really nervous. I am also having the Nuchal scan and bloods taken (Combined test) which I am also worried about.

    I have a doppler which I used and found the heartbeat at week 10 ish and I tried it last night and couldn't find it :( I am sure Flump is just being naughty and hiding but it it really freaked me out. I am 11w+5 today.

    Please tell me that everyone else worries the same as me and that I have not dreamt the whole thing. Please be safe and well little flump xxxxx

    first scan for me too on the 4th :)

    it is normal to worry but try to focus on just seeing your baby. i wont buy a doppler as i am such a worrier i would be checking all the time when sometimes it takes the midwife a wee while to find the heart beat even.

    hope all goes well...

    I have an angelsounds doppler and I can't always find my baby's heartbeat at 14 weeks! Don't sweat it. They are unreliable. As long as your doctor finds the heartbeat at your appointments, you're okay. The good news is that the farther you get the more you can hear your baby's kicks and rolls, even when you can't find his/her heartbeat! You do have to remember, baby will start sleeping and then you cannot find him/her at all. I would only really worry if you start bleeding and try not to over-use the doppler.

    At 12 weeks I couldnt find my baby and I was cramping badly, so I went to the ER. Turned out I had a big growing baby and a UTI. I put the doppler back in the closet and didn't look at it again until yesterday. Still no heartbeat, but one wound up baby!

    Don't stress.

    I have a scan to find out the gender on Friday. Best of luck with yours & I'm sure baby is fine!

    Thanks Ladies - I bet the more I stressed the more she/he was hiding. I cannot wait until I can feel she/he moving, I will be a lot more settled then, its just at the moment, flump is too small and too low down. How many weeks is it until they start to move away from your pelvis ?

    Can I join in as its my 12 week scan too on Friday! I have been counting down the days for the last 2 weeks!

    I have had a couple of early scans, the last being 6+5 but am still so scared about Friday!

    We are planning to tell our parents friday evening and I so want to deliver good news!

    Good luck to all you other ladies!

    At 14 weeks your uterus is about an inch over your pelvis, so around then.

    I have my scan that day too!! Although I reckon I will be more like 10 weeks they go from LMP.
    Honestly, I am not a fan of dopplers - think they cause a lot of unnecessary worry. I am a massively worrier and the only thing that works for me is trying to assume things are fine. When I indulge in obsessive behaviour to try to reassure myself (inappropriate googling etc) it never helps. :dohh:

    Good luck for friday everyone!!

    Will look forward to logging on after mine is at 2-20!

    I am worried about drinking all that water before hand as I just know they will be running late!

    ~Luckily my boss (she is the only person who knows!) has been kind and said I dont have to work after (What ever the outcome I wont be able to concentrate!)

    My first time around I drank a litre of water as was told they were on time. They forgot me and I had to wait an hour. Instead of worrying about the scan I was just trying not to wet myself. On the positive side I was commended on the fullness of my bladder when I finally went in!!

    Hi Ladies,

    My dating scan is on Friday too at 3 pm :-D Am very excited but nervous also! I had an early scan a few weeks ago and they said I could have been a week earlier than I thought but said may not be accurate because pic was blurry. So I think I'm either going to be 11 + 5 or 12 + 5 on Friday :-D x
