(24 Posts)

Hi, I'm am roughly 6+2 and suffered mmc in July. I have been booked in for a reassurance scan on 26/2. I'll be 7+2. Any idea what I will see or what to expect. I am crapping myself. blush

I had one at 7+1 Saw a bean like shape (Baby) and a heartbeat.
I had to have internal scan because they couldn't see too clearly. Good luck

I had one at 7+2. I'll attach a pic.

mummy2Lills Tue 16-Feb-16 19:05:35

MrsGlam. Did you have the scan for reassurance or for dating xx I am so scared. I found out about mc at my 12 week scan measured at 8+4 weeks

mummy2Lills Tue 16-Feb-16 19:07:10

Thank you Champagnefor I am a nervous wreck. Just wanted to see what to expect. I didn't expect an appointment so soon. Was hoping around 8+2/3

MrsGlam Tue 16-Feb-16 19:13:47

I had one after a bleed so reassurance one.
I hope it goes well for you

mummy2Lills Tue 16-Feb-16 19:16:54

Thank you. Would be lovely to have some stress free time and some sleep. Also suffering nightmares and insomniasad

Mine was a blob and a hearbeat. As above, it was a transvaginal scan.

MrsGlam Tue 16-Feb-16 19:22:36

I don't think you will get either in pregnancy I know I haven't! And I am nearly 31 weeks!

mummy2Lills Tue 16-Feb-16 19:33:01

The heartbeat sounds reassuring, but panicking myself silly. Wondering what the chances are of still mc after scan as its before my last mc date wise. I know I may be panicking over nothing. No one knows so thank you for being here to discuss things with. This is a godsend.

My little girl is 4 in March and my pregnancy was plain sailing flowers appreciate each reply

MrsGlam Tue 16-Feb-16 19:50:10

I might be wrong but apart from unusual circumstances the miscarriage risk after seeing a good strong heartbeat is low something like 5-10%

mummy2Lills Tue 16-Feb-16 19:58:58

Thank you

Here's my 6+6 is the funny looking blob between the dashed lines. Heart beat clearly seen flickering away on the screen x

FirstTimeInForever Tue 16-Feb-16 20:25:18

I should add that the above was an abdominal scan, as was my 5+2. Bean clearly seen! X

mummy2Lills Tue 16-Feb-16 20:34:28

Firsttime abdominal So normal scan and not internal?

sophied1983 Tue 16-Feb-16 20:36:35

This was mine at 6+5...

FirstTimeInForever Tue 16-Feb-16 20:39:07

This is my fifth pregnancy and I've been scanned from around 3 and a half weeks with every one...long story so I won't go into it! The previous four pregnancies all had to be internal scans up until around six weeks, but for some reason, this little bean wanted to make itself seen easily! They always try an abdominal first at my EPU so full bladder needed, but then, when they can't get a clear picture, they ask you to empty your bladder for an internal. That's what I was expecting this time but no need, it could be seen clear as day at 5+2 on the normal abdominal scan. My advice would be to expect an internal but go with a full bladder just in case! X

mummy2Lills Tue 16-Feb-16 20:40:41

I'm feeling more positive now thanks everyone. I shall do that. I will let everyone know of interested how I get on

FirstTimeInForever Tue 16-Feb-16 20:41:42

Yes, please do and the very best of luck flowers

Champagneformyrealfriends Tue 16-Feb-16 20:47:29

Oh our reassurance scan was lovely-I felt great after. I still worried but it helped ease my anxiety. They were lovely at ours too! We used Thisismy.

Junosmum Tue 16-Feb-16 21:07:53

I had a suspected ectopic. Transvaginal scan as abdominal one couldn't see anything. Saw a bean and a strong flickering heartbeat. Miscarriage rate after heartbeat seen is about 5%. Good luck.

mummy2Lills Tue 23-Feb-16 22:29:35

I promised I would update. So today
I had rescan and although measuring in at 6+3, rather than 7+2 all seems good. We had a heartbeat and the sonographer was overall pleasedsmile rebooked for 2 weeks time

Champagneformyrealfriends Tue 23-Feb-16 22:55:33

That's brilliant! grin
