was everyone else worried, anxious that when they have the first scan nothing is going to be there. am 11 weeks preg with first baby and have first scan at 13 weeks so not long now and having every symptom going with belly expanding, but it still doesnt seem real yet as noone has confirmed it medically which i find really strange!!
Know how you feel...you think "I might be making this happen to me or it could be coincidence I have all these symptoms" you can't quite believe it, can you? It's an exciting experience though apart from not being allowed to have a wee!!! Hope it goes well. I'm pg again and I'm sure I will think the same again.
thanks buttonmoon at least someone understands what i am going through - all my friends have had babies but seem to forget the first 3 months now their ones are a little older - congrats on your pregnancy - roll on another two weeks.
Hi Lonelymum - yes all is very strange at the moment - after 5 preg tests, first one in spanish which is where i found out i still dont quite believe it. Think when i have the scan though i will allow myself to become excited about it. Think i am holding myself back a little at the moment just so i dont get disappointed although its all i think about 24/7!!
Kelly1978 - yes it is so weird being pregnant - not what i thought it was going to be like at all. am really pleased though although being anxious - we had already prebooked the wedding for next July before i knew i was pregnant so we should be having an extra addition to our wedding day - only thing is will have 9 months to lose the weight as already brought the wedding dress!!
I tried to CAT you but it tells me I can't, I've been trying to contact you about the DD100 and A103 thing! Let me know if you still want to do it! My email is email@example.com, I'm pretty sure there aren't any axe-murderers on here, if there are ... well ... good luck! Take care ... CAZ
Just to echo what everyone else has said when you see the baby for the first time it is amazing. I couldn't belive how perfect it was it realy looked like a baby! i know that sounds odd but i realy wasn't exspecting it to look so human!
Just enjoy it and make sure you ask for some photos of scan as i remember looking at them weeeks later just to make it all seem real Good luck
Diamonte - congratulations! I've now reached 21 weeks and had another scan on Monday and still feel like I must be imagining it ! The scans are a wonderful experience. I cried at my first one because I had so convinced myself that there would be nothing inside, so just to see baby for the first time is amazing. I don't think being pregnany will truly sink in until I have baby in my arms! Enjoy the experience and definitely as the other ladies said though get the pictures as they are lovely to keep, although I had to pay £4 per picture for mine!
I had that! Especially first time. So silly and strange, isn't it? I had this bizarre notion they'd tell me not to be so stupid and send me home again Have a lovely time seeing your baby - it's very emotional. Though not as emotional as when he/she actually arrives - that's AMAZING.
I think most of us experience this - I remember panicking like crazy that there would be nothing there and that I was imagining it all. Amazing to actually see the heart beating though - lovely experience.
just logged on - thanks for all your messages. glad to know that i am not being silly about thinking nothing is going to be there. only a little while to wait and am keeping everything crossed!! Will defo remember to get those pictures to keep reminding myself
