20 week scan in 4.5 hours. Can't sleep!

So, the 20wk scan is in a very short space of time happening. I am beyond nervous/anxious.

The scan is a bit delayed because of Christmas/ New Year hours. So I'm actually 22 weeks +1 day.

I so want our little peanut to be well.

Have been so convinced he's a boy - and am panicking now that he could be a girl! It's doing my head in!
Health is clearly the most important thing.. I am so scared something might be wrong. But I'm also wondering now whether I'd be better off finding out the sex now in order to wrap my head around what it is we're having and to help me bond better. (I'm very worried about this)

At this moment, I wouldn't be surprised if they said 'you're having a baby goat'

Any thoughts/advice? What if they say something is wrong with Peanut?
It's been so tough emotionally and physically up to this point; I think.I'd go to pieces if it was confirmed he/she had something wrong.

How do I quiet my mind? Help!!

I remember that feeling (and they were both fine)!

Just distract yourself. The time will come soon enough.

Enjoy your lovely baby - boy, girl, who cares? They are yours and you'll adore that unique little person no matter what sex they are. Congratulations Flowers

I have mine on Wednesday and am back to work tomorrow, well today I guess HmmI am a teacher.

The combination of anxiety over these two things means I also can't sleep!

You have my sympathy. In all likelihood it will be fine for both of us and our little ones. FlowersSmile

How did it go OP?

I am having a healthy (as far as the scan can tell) baby girl. I balled like a baby throughout.

The day later got awful... But I think I should post that on a different thread.

Thank you ladies for your care and compassion. I deeply appreciated it xxx
