I have an eight week scan booked for late this afternoon.

I am really scared of the outcome.

It is my sixth pregnancy without a baby so far.

It has got to the point now where DH and I don't tell anyone I'm pregnant, as it is just too hard to them tell them I've lost another one, so we don't have any RL support.

Brilliant news for both of you. X

smile Eurochick. Good that you have another scan in 10 days too.

Really interesting links, willitbe, read the BMJ one with interest, although I think eurochick is right about the lack of aspirin takers in the study.

I don't really know what to think about taking it now- might try and broach with the consultant again- cue much eye rolling. Clearly they think I've just got a bee in my bonnet about the whole clotting thing when they have decided I just don't have it.

But I'm not prepared to agree with them when I have the Post Mortem from my 5 month loss, which was otherwise a perfectly healthy and viable pregnancy, and if this one is too I don't want to lose it to the same thing.

That's wonderful news Eurochick! smile

I'm on baby aspirin because I had very high bHCG levels at 12 weeks and there is research linking better outcomes with taking it. I had not yet had my first consultant appointment so I started it without his go ahead, but when I told him he said it was fine, that the risks were so small as to be negligible so even if it didn't make a positive difference, it almost certainly wouldn't make a negative one.

Then again every consultant is different and two consultants often happily contradict each other and both probably find research to back it up too!

VJONES you are in my thoughts today, I hope the scan goes well for you thanks

Armadale Thu 16-Jan-14 09:50:15

Oh dear, I'm in scan doom again. I have my 10 week scan this afternoon and I'm finding it very hard to stay calm.

lizziekal Thu 16-Jan-14 09:53:56

It doesn't get any easier, I have a meltdown before each one (already getting nervous about my next one in 10 days when I'll be 29 weeks). Hope it all goes okay this pm.

Armadale Thu 16-Jan-14 09:57:29

thanks Lizzie, that makes me feel a bit more normal....it is like each time I go there all the other scans come back iyswim....28 weeks is brilliant- how are you feeling?

makesamesswhenstressed Thu 16-Jan-14 10:00:32

Good luck for today x

lizziekal Thu 16-Jan-14 10:05:54

Still in disbelief that we've made it this far! Just keep taking it a day at a time and you'll be fine.

Armadale Thu 16-Jan-14 10:56:07

thanks makesamess, I think your username currently describes my living room!

makesamesswhenstressed Thu 16-Jan-14 14:02:10

Mine too, but I have a little help from my 2 yr old! He makes a mess when he breathes

Armadale Thu 16-Jan-14 16:18:10

Just back, 10 week scan was good, everything looked ok. I haven't got this far in the 4 pg's before this one, only the first one, so I'm feeling more hopeful

lizziekal Thu 16-Jan-14 16:33:23

Yay. Great news.

Very happy for you! X

Ah, fantastic! I've been lurking on this thread, really hoping for you to post good news. thanks

Armadale Fri 17-Jan-14 13:41:15

Ah thank you everyone. I had a whole nights sleep last night, except for a couple of loo trips, the relief is just brilliant. Onwards and upwards until the 12 week scan meltdown, I suspect!
