12 week wait making anyone else crazy?

Hi ladies,
Sorry if this is a duplicate but I can’t see the other posted...I feel like I’m becoming a crazy person waiting for my 12 week scan!
I had an early scan at 7 weeks and managed to see a lovely heartbeat, and that relaxed me for a while. However, I’m now 9+ weeks and pink spotting. The EPU doesn’t seem concerned and won’t scan be unless it gets worse sad along with that I have zero pregnancy symptoms. I know I should feel lucky but it’s doing the opposite and I’m convinced the little ones died sad which makes me feel mad and I can’t relax!
Anyone else in the same situation or could offer some advise / reassurance? Would really appreciate it! Thank you! X

Should add I had the 7 week scan due to spotting. Which is why they won’t see me this time. And I have no cramps or anything else. Too many missed miscarriage posts on here i think sad makes me sad x

I’m sorry you’re going through this. Do you have the funds for a private scan? They are sometimes on Groupon.

Hubbys against it sad found one for £90 but he said it won’t change anything. And it could be ok today and not tomorrow! Says it’s a waste of money and I suppose he is right.

Another scan would not be a waste of time. It will give you a clear picture of what is happening now and hopefully calm your anxiety. Unless your DH thinks you dying of worry for the next three weeks is good for you and the baby?

I don't mean to be harsh, but just go for the scan. It'll will be £90 well spent.

I have my seven week scan on Friday (ivf pregnancy) and there's not a cat in hells chance of me leaving it five weeks until the next one. I'd be a nervous wreck too!

I'd have the scan to settle your nerves.
I had spotting all through my last pregnancy, and having had a miscarriage at 6 weeks the time before that, it's quite different. Even at 6 weeks the cramps were horrendous and it was a bright red clotty bleed.
Im sure everything is fine but I'd go for a scan anyway

Thank you smile his point is Just will it help long term or will I just want another one in a week...and so on!
Thanks you though smile may just book it as can’t hurt! If I had symptoms I’d feel better I think!
