Hi all,

New here so hello!

I am 10 weeks today but having really minimal symptoms. Sore boobs have been constant and was absolutely shattered for a two weeks but that seems to have passed now - and that is it.

anyone else not having lots of symptoms? I don't want to worry but don't think i'm going to be able to feel excited about the pregnancy until i have my first scan.

I have my booking appointment on Monday - am in Bristol - how long after booking appointment am i likely to get scan?

thank you - ellx

Also be really nice to chat if anyone is in same area/same stages! thanks!

Don't worry too much about lack of symptoms. I had very few symptoms with either of mine, never sick, no sore boobs. Now one is 5 and one is 4 months. smile good luck and congratulations.

hi im using my cousins account but im also 10 weeks and im the same only got sore boobs no other symptoms, ive had a scan early due to some complications but everythings fine. you havnt to worry trust me i dont even feel pregnant half the time tbh lol xx

Thank you both! Despite doing 4 tests i think i am denial that it has actually happened! (although i really want it!). Think i just want to know everything is ok.

How long after booking appointments do you usually get booked in for scan? will it be by 12 weeks - i.e. in next 2 weeks do you think?

thank you smile

i already have my next scan booked on 3rd dec and ill be 13 weeks then, once youve seen ur midwife they will give u a number to ring to book ur dating scan. i was exactly the same tho i didnt even believe i was pregnant and sometimes still dont tbh i thought it was just me!

elmo1983 Sat 17-Nov-12 12:23:00

Thanks - Think i need to see it to believe it! have been so panicked about not telling people because its early on and risk of mc etc that i think i have taken the fun out of it a little bit. Looking forward to things being ok at scan (fingers crossed!) and being able to enjoy it a bit more!

I've been the same through my pregnancy- sore boobs, shattered and spotty. No ms but I felll out with mouthwash and feel yuck during a long car journey. I'm now 13 weeks and saw our little one last week :-) don't worry! I'm sure all is fine x

Hi elmo1983 I am in the same boat. I have really bad text book symptoms until 9 weeks then magically they lifted. I am afraid I have had a MMC (god forbid) or something. I caved and order a doppler off ebay because I really dont want to have to wait three more weeks to find out if everything is ok.. It was 30 pounds off ebay and I am sitting here waiting for it to arrive right now...

Hi elmo and congrats!
I had lots of symptoms until about 9 weeks and then they all eased off. Nothing to worry about though, and by 13 weeks they all came back with a vengeance! I'm 20 weeks now and still finding it hard to believe (until I notice my massive baby bump grin)
Although they call it a 12 week scan, they just have to get it done before about 14 weeks, so no guarantee you will get one before 12 weeks. Mine wasn't until 13+5. If you end up with a late one like me it means the agony of waiting longer, but it also means you can see a bit more on the scan and hopefully get a good pic.
Good luck x

I had no symptoms from 10 weeks and was really scared going in to my dating scan (12+5) but saw my baby wiggling around and even standing on its head :D. I'm 17w now and my symptoms are back full on! This morning at a church Xmas fayre I almost threw up as I entered as it stank of bacon from the cafe.
I think symptoms do tend to wane at around 9 weeks so try not to worry too much smile.

Hi! I turned 10 weeks yesterday and although I've been utterly exhausted and had sore boobs, I've only had slight nausea and no actual sickness, so I'm in the same boat! I had my booking in appt at 8 weeks but have only just received my scan appt for 5th December (12+5). Hopefully shouldn't be too long for you smile

Have to admit, I'm bricking it until I actually get my scan and hit the 13 week mark - feel like I'm holding my breath constantly....

Hi Elmo, I'm on my second pregnancy now but had virtually no symptoms with either. Slightly sore boobs with my first and felt a bit grotty but not really nauseated over xmas (when about 10 weeks) and nothing this time. Both times by the time I got to the scan I had pretty much convinced myself that I wasn't actually pregnant or that something was wrong but both times very healthy babies. I think some people are lucky not to get major symptoms - we obviously don't react to the hormone changes like others (as my mum was apparently the same with both my brother and I).

I hope the scan goes well and you get some good pics - my first the pictures were really unclear although the scan itself was excellent and they explained all the areas they were looking at.

Thank you everyone!

Really excited about booking appointment now - apart from all the blood tests (yuk). Fingers crossed i will find out about scan etc will be really excited then.

Congratulations everyone - keep happy and healthy! smile
