hello- I've got my 12 week scan tml we decided to go private as the hospital was mucking around abit with the time of scans and wasn't that helpful and we couldn't wait any longer. I'm just so scare that I'm going to go to the scan tmo and there give me bad news. I have had no signs of missed carriage no bleeding no pains nothing. my symptoms have eased off I never was sick and only felt sickness but they have all gone and I'm just left with headaches is thi normal and can anyone give me some advice for tmo please

My symptoms came and went. I cried before my 12 week scan with the same fears as you (it's very common fear).
Currently feeding my 3.5 week old so loss os symptoms isn't a bad thing. Enjoy it whilst it lasts.

Good luck with your scan flowers

Good luck for today - I'm 36weeks now and still get nervous before every midwife appointment! Was very jittery before both scans - totally normal! I'm sure it'll go fine

Hope all goes well today. I also found that my symptoms (mainly nausea and sore boobs) seemed to disappear at around 9 weeks so I also worried it might indicate a problem. My 12 week scan showed everything was fine though and I'm now 39 weeks.

It's natural to be nervous but try to remember that for the vast majority of people the scan shows everything is fine. Only a couple of hours left for you to wait!

Good luck today, I have everything crossed for you that you have a perfect scan xx

Thankyou both so much. it's so nice to have the support on here and listen to everyone else stories puts me at ease that everything I am feeling is normal and okay.
I shal let you all know how it goes starting to feel very nervous now and just want it to be here.

Good luck for your scan - but wondering if you're still going to your NHS scan? I moved house recently and my new hospital couldn't take any of my previous scans (NHS and private) into account for my notes. So I had to have scans and bloods again.

Alicejj8 Wed 30-Mar-16 10:45:13

Oh really ? that's annoying for you isn't it?
I will still go to the nhs one but they can't do an appt for me atm which I can do so after today's scan I shall ring them back up and explain I had a private one done today and see what they say with regards to my scan with them.
how annoying for you though xx

sepa Wed 30-Mar-16 13:25:57

How did the scan go?

Freezingwinter Wed 30-Mar-16 13:26:52

I was very anxious for my first scan too. I hope yours went ok today!

Alicejj8 Wed 30-Mar-16 13:37:54

Hello guys, unfortunately I suffered a missed missed carriage sad I lost the baby at 6 weeks and continued to have pregnancy symptoms up untill last week. I didn't find out I was pregnant untill 10 1/2 weeks and today I was 12+4 weeks. X

Pinkheart5915 Wed 30-Mar-16 13:39:26

I hope your scan went well.
We all get anxious before the first scan

OwlinaTree Wed 30-Mar-16 13:59:25

Sorry Alice.

possum18 Wed 30-Mar-16 14:07:37

Hope scan went okay for you op. If it helps I've had 9 scans so far in my pregnancy and I get soooo nervous before each one, even when I can feel them both wiggling away, I always worry for the 2 seconds before they flick the monitor on.

Good luck X

Alicejj8 Wed 30-Mar-16 14:09:44

Thankyou for the support and everyone's stories it has helped me and it'll help me for when we decide to try again xxx

Oooblimey Wed 30-Mar-16 14:45:45

Oh no, I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope that you're doing ok. Take care xxthanks

Aww alicejj8 I am so sorry to hear this hun. How awful for you! Did you not have a early scan when you found out hun to see how far along the pregnancy was?
Big hugs to you xxx

Alicejj8 Wed 30-Mar-16 15:19:29

thanksthanks when I found out I was 10 1/2 weeks pregnant so they just told me to wait for the 12 week scan. I had blood tests and they were all fine. I guess at the moment it wasn't meant to be and hopefully the next time I'll get pregnant it'll be okay just so horrible to think it was inside of me for so long and I didn't even know sad sad

1moretime Wed 30-Mar-16 15:24:07

Aww bless you hunni. Im 10 weeks today this is my 3rd pregnancy. I mc at 6 weeks first time, I have a beautiful DS & expecting again...I am so on edge too hun. I think it's just natural. You worry from the day you find out & that worry never goes away!!
It's gonna be tough for you hun. What are the next steps? X

Alicejj8 Wed 30-Mar-16 16:02:53

Oh no did you sad but congrats on you though very happy for you!! smile the worry is awful isn't it but I just knew deep down something wasn't right if that make sense??
so Friday I've got to go to the hospital and have more tests to confirm it as I had a private scan today they have to send me to the hospital to 100% be correct. I then have to choose how to deal with the miscarriage I am a wimp with surgery so I would probably take that tablet but I have heard you can have local surgery which you don't need to be put to sleep for which I would be happy to have its just I'm so scared of being put to sleep so of the offer me the local surgery I shall take that but if not probably the tablet as I would want it to start rather than wait for nature to take irs course just so I no when it's coming if that make sense. has anyone else experienced missed miss carriage (mmc) and have any experience and help that can help me Friday and what to expect after please xxx

sepa Wed 30-Mar-16 17:14:44
