Another stupid scan tomorrow - dreading it

(34 Posts)

I haven't had a scan for over three weeks now, and during that time I have settled into a fairly peaceful state of mind which is a combination of denial and misplaced optimism that all will be fine -

but tomorrow I will have another scan where they will check baby's position etc to decide on type of birth. I am dreading it because so far every scan has brought bad news, and I don't really want to be dragged out of my calm state of mind into more worrying and fear.

Wish me luck please!

Baby has been moving around a lot lately which has also been very reassuring.

Just to say I have read your threads, and will be thinking of you tomorrow. Take care x

alexsmum Sun 21-May-06 23:59:36

em can you just refuse to have the scan?
can you say to the docs' is this scan absolutely necessary?'
because it seems like they are doing all these scans and nothing solid is coming out of it, just lots of worry for you.
i haven't posted before because i haven't known what to say but just wanted to let you know that
i'll be thinking of you and sending all my best

Emkana, I am having my scan tomorrow too! And I feel just as you do--the baby is moving around and I wish I could just enjoy it and not have this constant feeling of dread.
I'll be thinking of you, it helps to know am not the only one going through it.
Much love

emkana, I haven't posted on any of your other threas as I'm fairly new here, but I've read them and I wish you all the luck in the world for tomorrow - I hope that this one might be the one that brings you good news for a change.
Fingers (and everything else) crossed for you. xx

emkana - wish you all the best. Would it help to look at this as taking control and being part of a decision making process in regards to the birth etc.
