    Hope it all goes well, which I'm sure it will. I know it's easier said than done, I had an early scan at 8+2 and I keep having moments where I'm convinced something will be wrong at the 12 weeks scan, but like yourself not had any sign that there is a problem. I think it's natural to worry cos we love our little beans so much.

    hi mjt11907 -
    My EDD is also 29 June & i have my 12 week scan tomorrow! Super nervous too! did you not have an NT scan? i couldn't see your pic - would love to!

    hi lauralora -
    i am 12 weeks today & I don't have any more cramping. I think it's just at the begining of the 1st trimester when the uterus is growing, maybe there's enough room in there now for the bean? & i don't know, maybe the cramping comes back when the bean grows some more...
    I have a little MS but not much else as far as symptoms. I am very "aware" of my belly, if that makes sense. It's sticking out a bit and I do try to hold it in at work because no one knows yet. And I have noticed in the morning that I can no longer stretch when I wake up. my usual reflex is to put my arms above my head and arch my back a little - but now it's uncomfortable.
