As most of you know - cos I whinged about it so much - i am not due to get my '12 week' scan for another 5 weeks - when I will be 17 weeks!! i tried everything i could think of but to no avail.... well today i thought i would try the hospital directly one last time just to see of someone nice answered the phone.... well they did and they said they are quiet today so I can pop up this afternoon and they will do a quick scan - they said I might not be able to have any photo's (which is fine with me) and if they suddenly get busy or have emergencies they will cancel on me (fine again!!) but other than that I will get to see my bean today!!! the only downside is that I have worked myself into such a frenzy that i am completely convinced that there will be nothing there or i will have had a missed miscarriage!! i havent had any spotting/bleeding or cramps, but I also havent had many symptoms - sore breasts (but they disappeared a good few weeks ago) and I get a bit nauseous if i let my tummy get too empty - other than that i am fine but cant get this out of my head!! sorry for the long thread!!! just trying to find some PMA and other people who have been similar to me and it all turned out fine. thanks!!
