First Ultrasound on Monday and very nervous...

I go in for my first ultrasound on Monday and I'm so very nervous. I want everything to be perfect but I'm terrified there will be something wrong. I had a miscarriage last year and I just can't get it out of my mind. Symptom wise my nausea has dropped off almost completely (I'm 12 weeks today) but I am terribly constipated all the time. Only other symptom is I can no longer fit in any of my dress pants for work or any of my jeans. I had to pull out older clothes from when I was 30 pounds heavier. Oh, and I get round ligament pain when I sneeze.

I keep trying to tell myself I have no reason to be so worried but I just can't turn my brain off. I'm going to be such a wreck this entire weekend. So ladies, how did you distract yourselves from all the negative thoughts?

Try and fill the weekend with lots of activities / trash tv!

Don't forget symptoms do decrease as the placenta takes over - I'm sure you'll have a lovely positive scan Monday xx

Hi jurisane

I also have my 12 week scan on Monday and I'm very nervous. I only seem to be able to focus on the negative outcomes that could occur!!!

Have you told your family/ friends about your pregnancy?

It's very normal to worry but it's worth remembering that worrying won't change anything. The mostly likely scenario is you will go and have a lovely scan!

Don't worry (easier said than done), mine was on Tuesday and I actually lost sleep over it I was so worried but it was absolutely fine - awe inspiring actually. Just go with it and keep telling yourself "as of today, I'm pregnant" - you can't do anything about it if something has gone wrong and it's better for your wellbeing to stay calm. I know that's easy for me to say but keep yourself busy, Monday will be here before you know it and you'll get to see Baby for the first time x x

Thanks everyone.

Only a limited number of close family and friends know so far. My husband can't go with me to the scan so my mother said she would go. She's also taking me to lunch and shopping on Saturday. Hopefully that will help keep me busy. I'll have to catch up on my TV shows too.

Good luck Emma321q! I'll be thinking of you as I get my scan too.
