Relieved is an understatement!! (warning scan pic!)

Relieved is an understatement!! (warning scan pic!)

So as some of you guys know I had an eventful weekend after I had a gush of blood came out on Saturday. A call to 111 and a visit to a&e left me none the wiser as to the outcome of the bleed...which left me a little anxious to say the least at 9wks pregnant...

So the good news is we went for a private scan this morning and everything is great!

Our little bean has doubled in size in the last 10 days. The heartbeat is perfect and we got to watch him/her wriggling away...waving at us! Almost like he/she was saying "don't worry, I'm ok!!" Its so cool knowing exactly where our bambino is in my belly! They have no idea where the blood came from but they said it doesn't look like it came from anywhere near baby...and that's good enough for me 😁

These couple of days have been so hard but all worth it just for our little view this morning. I managed to hold it together all weekend but must admit I'm a little emosh now...I'm actually getting attached to our little bean head (something I've been trying not to do!)

It just goes to show...you ain't out til your out!!

Thanks for all your support everyone...I don't know what I'd do without you xxx

MASSIVE relief, so pleased and happy for you. Aren't you over 9 weeks now? They say if a strong heartbeat is detected at this stage, you have very very high odds of a live birth. 8 weeks I believe is the critical point, and you are over that. xxx

Yes 9wks 2 days now. Had my 1st scan at 7wks 3 days...so I immediately thought something had gone wrong at 8wks as I know that's a critical time for striking out with a chromosome defect...most of my symptoms have certainly got less too so I really thought I must be out!

I'm so so pleased to hear this! I had a feeling it was all going to be fine but have been checking on here waiting for your update. I can imagine how I would feel if I was in your shoes and so have been really worrying about you. It is so hard not to get attached, isn't it? I had a scan at 9 weeks privately and also saw the little arms and legs waiving. Promised myself that I wouldn't get too attached until I was through the first trimester but I'm failing dismally at that! X

We were planning on having a private scan next week (as I have the week off)...so we just had it a week early instead. Already can't wait til my next one in around 3wks!! I know you have to limit them (I heard too many may not be good for baby) but it's hard isn't it?!...its amazing how much they change in a shot period of time 😀 xxx

It's like the bottom drops out of your world in a second and no one or nothing can help...its sheer panic isn't it? I really surprised myself how strong I was...I was falling apart inside but wanted to keep it together for my dh who is much more sensitive than me...if he saw me lose it god knows what he'd be like...and I knew we couldn't do anything for 2 days so just had to get on with it and be as normal as poss! xxx

Have you tried acupuncture? I've been going once a week for a year and there's been a few times I've been in complaining of hormonal headaches and he sorted them straight away...might be worth a look! xxx

Reply

Does it hurt I have a phobia of needles. Xx

Reply

Nope you can't feel them..its not anything like a blood test or vacination....I also used to have a massive phobia of needles but I suppose I have ivf to thank for getting me over that! Most acupuncturists will do a trial run so you can see what you think. It probably isn't for everyone but when you said about headaches I had to mention it as he's fixed mine 2-3 times where conventional medicine didn't work xxx
