12 week scan

(4 Posts)

I have my scan in a few weeks and I'm really nervous, I've heard so many horror stories about going there and not seeing a heart beat but still being pregnant. I get the odd cramps, nothing painful just the odd twinge, and the only spotting I had was at the start when !tmi! Had sex. I'm not getting the first trimester symptoms as strong, still tired, still feeling sick now and then and keep needing the toilet.

Am I worrying over nothing?

A missed miscarriage is of course possible but it's not probable!

Next week will be here soon enough. Good luck!

It's normal to have some nerves in early pregnancy, as until your scan it is hard to know what's really going on on there.
Sadly sometimes things do go wrong, which is devastating, and especially on these forums it's very comforting to share experiences with people who have been through similar. It's a bit unfair to call them 'horror stories' though.
Statistically although miscarriages are common, it's still much more likely that your pregnancy will progress normally and you'll have your healthy baby.
Just try to relax, take your pregnancy vits, eat well, rest well and hope for the best.
Fingers crossed for you.

I didn't mean to call them horror stories it's what other people have called it. Sorry if i offended anyone.
