First scan tomorrow - so scared 😟

Hi guys hope everyone is well, after finding out we got pregnant naturally just before starting our injections a couple of weeks ago I was over the moon followed by our first midwife appointment which was like whoo this is really happening wow - then the dread of bad luck sunk in (I’m a worrier) i want to be excited but I’m so scared I woke up Saturday night in excruciating pain early hours to the point it made me sick πŸ˜“ I called the EPU and explained as I was understandably worried and they said it was normal but would book me for an emergency scan tomorrow I’m 8 weeks I’ve had no bleeding or anything like that but have had constant tummy ache - I should be excited about seeing our little prawn on screen tomorrow but a part of me is dreading it incase there is no HB I know I sound like a phyco lol but I’m terrified I’ve waited soooo long to even get to this point I could just do with some good luck on my side for once! I don’t even know what I’m asking of at all I just wanted someone to talk to as I don’t want to scare my hubby as he is so apprehensive about the whole situation as it is - love to all xx.

Hey hun, i am just above 12 weeks now and in all honesty my tummy used to hurt constantly all day every day for the past 6-7 weeks... initially it did get me worried but the EPU unit were very kind and scanned me every 2 weeks until I was 12 weeks+.

The pain is caused by everything that is moving around to make space for the baby to grow bigger easily, I know it's easier said than done but after my first scan after the continuous pains I was put to ease...

Good luck and you will be just fine. Xx

The EPU was so kind... the head DR was very welcoming and it was always her who scanned me at every single one of my scans (she booked my appointments only at the time she was there) from week 5 to week 12 I was scanned almost every second sunday at the hospital.

Maybe because I am pregnant with twins or she saw how upset or scared I was when I went in the first time, I thought I was loosing it all cause initially I went in due to slight bleeding and while she was doing the ultrasound she was initially quiet and I kept on asking for her to say something and she felt what I was going through... they did tell me this was the norm when they discharged me at 12 weeks as they said they are not authorized to scan anyone beyond this stage.

Twins wow maybe that’s why then I can only ask them when I go tomorrow I feel like a nervous wreck lol it’s not a nice feeling is it ☹️ it’s supposed to be such a happy time but I don’t think I will totally relax till he/she is in my arms (sounds weird even saying that) One last question did they do a β€œregular” ultrasound on you at 7 weeks ? And did you hear the HB ? XX

Good luck for today, hope it all goes well. As the others have said some pain at this stage is normal as everything starts expanding but you’re right to get yourself checked out - look at it as a bonus scan!

Hi, I'm so happy for you!)) First scan is such an exited and emotional moment of your life! Maybe you will find out that you have twins, haha) What is your hCG level? I found out that I have twins on the first scan. However, there is a possibility of missing a twin in some scans. That is why many scans are indicated for pregnancy. Other signs in pregnancy are particularly useful to determine twin pregnancy like:

Increased uterine size which does not correspond to the duration of pregnancy; Increased vomiting during first trimester; Feeling of many fetal movements. Excessive weight gain during pregnancy i.e. more than 12 kg in a woman with normal pre-pregnant BMI. Multiple fetal parts on palpation of uterus. As such, no investigation is considered singly. A good diagnosis is arrived only after the investigations complement the clinical findings.

I feel exactly like this. I am 5 weeks at the moment with my first by IVF and I am absolutely petrified of miscarriage. I have cramped literally every day since the blastocyst was transferred back in. I am desperate to get past the 12 week mark but first we have a 6 week scan next week. I am sick with nerves worrying about losing the pregnancy. It's nice to see others who have had similar symptoms who have gone on to have healthy pregnancies. Best of luck x

Me and you on the same boat ... my viability Scan is only on the 20th! Until then am trying to keep busy,calm, positive and despite not being religious, am praying that all goes well! So far so good! After my miscarriage in August @ 10 weeks I know too well how things can be taken away from you so quick but hope and faith are the last ones to go... keep positive and try to keep busy! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
