Another anxious post.
Im still really anxious about the first scan next week. That i turn up for nothing to be there when i get scanned. I have had the odd few symptoms but now they have pretty much disappeared. Can anyone give me any reassurance.

You and every other pg person, including me, twice now. My first scan (DC2) is also next week. Honestly, I'm not trying to trivialise your worry, but literally everyone worried about the same things.

What if it's twins? shockwink

I was just the same as you with all the anxiety before my first scan with my son (5 months old) and my current pregnancy, it's normal to feel that way.

Once you've had the scan and seen your little one your feel so much better.

I know it's hard but please do try to not get overly anxious, try taking your mind of it maybe try an adult colouring book or something?

Im not 2 bad through the day, as working all day but when it comes to night i just keel thinking if ive got this all wrong. Maybe daft.

It's not daft at all, we've all been there.

I didn't have hardly any symptoms with my first baby and it's been the same this pregnancy apart from mad sugar cravings

It's called scanxiety and it happens to all of us. Good luck smile

Don't worry, I was sure that I had made it all up (no symptoms except going off chicken) and there was going to be nothing there - then my wee jumping bean popped up on the screen!

Once you've had the scan you'll feel so much better.

Congratulations and enjoy! flowers

I could have written this post 8 weeks ago! And people saying try not to worry doesn't help cause it's all you can do. The night before my scan I didn't sleep and I cried all morning. I cried when I got into the room. And I cried when I saw a little heartbeat and baby! It's natural to worry but more times than not baby is fine! Good luck flowers

I think everyone gets nervous, I know I did. Even though I had sickness and tiredness, I was still sure I'd been making it all up or something! I was also worried as we had an early scan at 9 wks due to some bleeding (baby was fine), but I was convinced that something had gone wrong between that time and our 12 wks scan. But nope - there she was, kicking and stretching and giving the poor lady a nightmare time trying to get her measurements! I know it might sound silly, but maybe try listening to some relaxing music (I just find play lists or long videos on YouTube), lie down and just focus on your little one and how much you love them, I also like to say a little prayer (but understand that might not be for you). I also have a little pregnancy diary where I write down how I'm feeling, I find that helps to release any anxiety I'm feeling. I'm now 23 weeks and baby girl is still doing really well, getting bigger and stronger.

I'm sure everything will be fine, and I wish you all the best flowers

Totally normal, I paid £100 for an early private scan so didn't have to wait that long and still had nightmares leading up to it. Just try to think happy thoughts.
