Dating scan nerves

Hi all ,
I know nobody can offer definite reassurance but I'm scared and need an outlet.

My partner I lost our baby last year at 23 weeks , we were given a fatal diagnosis at our anomaly scan and it fell apart from there.

I'm lucky enough to be pregnant again and tomorrow is our dating scan. We've done everything 'right' and followed doctor's advice but know that this still offers no guarentees.

I'm not sure what I want from you all but I feel very much like I may not sleep well tonight!

Thanks for reading.

I had a miscarriage last year and I am having my dating scan on Tuesday. I just wanted to say I have an idea how you're feeling. I'm very nervous and dreading it. All I tell myself is that it's beyond my control, there's no reason why history will repeat itself and if the worst happens I will get through it somehow.
Be kind to yourself. Acknowledge your negative feelings and try to be positive regardless.
Sending you every good vibe I have, take good care.

My Dr reminded me that every woman regardless of her past has nerves around the scans. It's very normal to feel nervous, so even without your history you would likely be feeling some anxiety now anyway. It makes me feel better when I'm trying to force myself to be super positive about everything.

We are pregnant again after a miscarriage last year and have our dating scan on wed...I feel very nervous too. Good luck...hope all goes well. I'm feeling pregnant with nausea, so tired and struggling to hide a bump so i'm hoping these are all good signs blush

Ha! Yes I've been sucking in my stomach at work because I'm not ready to talk about it yet.

Good luck to you too Bentley , I hope we can all be lucky this time around :-)

Good luck ladies. I'm pregnant again after 2 mc's and having fortnightly scans. So though not my dating scan, it's a 9/10 week scan on Tuesday for me and I'm feeling really nervous though I've seen the heart beat twice already.
Hoping the best for all of you. X
