    Hi ladies - this wont be of interest to many but i just really wanted to share! Well as the title says i had my 8 week scan today - i was so nervous i felt sick and was convinced something was going to be wrong. With all the truly sad stories we here i felt that i was going to be one of the unlucky ones.

    Well it was all over in a flash but there was my squishy bean on the screen before our eyes - heart beating away. It was amazing! She put my dates back by 4 days so i'm actually 7+3 which now makes my due date bang on August the 6th which is my 30th birthday!! I had a funny feeling that was going to happen! Feeling soooo happy now. :cloud9:

    Awww bet you feel really happy.. Congrats honey..
    mine went the other way (my little bean is just a slow grower - like me).
    bet you just fell in love straight away ( i know i did at my 8 week scan - where my dates got put forward).. it's normal to worry about everything, even when i was going for my second dating scan and i'd already seen a heartbeat and everything, i still panicked! we're mummy's-to-be.. it's our job!! :)
    Now you can enjoy your pregnancy knowing your bean is okay!!

    thanks allier - yep feeling pretty excited now and over the moon. We have been tempering our enthusiasm through fear but feeling great about it now. Unfortunately i fell over on the ice on the way home to bring me back down to earth quite literally with a bump! :haha:

    sammynashley, good luck with yours, it'll come around quickly,
    and it's lovely to see at 8 weeks, cause you see the heartbeat and everything!!
    i'm due my 3 month scan just before then!! :)

    Hi Sammy - thanks! I booked mine in when i was only 4 weeks or so and i thought the wait was going to kill me but it has come around really quick - hang in there - by the time christmas is over it will be here before you know it. Good luck - let us know how you get on.

    Thanks ladies - still smiling!

    Wiganlass - Hope all went well with the midwife, i haven't seen mine yet. 8 week scans aren't routinely given on the nhs. I went private for an 8 week scan as i am an anxious little bunny. Unless you have had previous difficulties (which i'm hoping you haven't) you wont get an nhs scan until 12 weeks. Hope that makes sense. x
