7 weeks scan on Tuesday and pregnancy symptoms

Hi, I’m so nervou for my scan on Tuesday these last few weeks have not felt real. Feeling very emotional at the thought of going for scan and praying everything is as it should be. I wouldn’t say I have had lots of symptoms but tiredness does hit at night and I seem to have vivid dreams all night! I don’t seem to have had any particular foods I have gone off but seem to generally not ‘fancy ‘ anything and can feel sickly at different points of the day. Has anyone else had this not fancying food in general and any tips for keeping calm at first scan? X

I’ve been off my porridge and my salads so I’ve changed what I eat to make sure that I still eat something but the first scan is nerve wracking and emotional. But it’s such a beautiful moment hearing your baby’s heartbeat for the first time is priceless xx

Hope all is ok for you! Have you have stopped testing? It’s the first weekend I’ve not tested! X

I test every Wednesday ie last Wednesday was 6 weeks, etc. Will test again on Wednesday morning just before the scan in afternoon. Panicking about ectopic pregnancy, chemical pregnancy, feted stopped growing, etc etc etc... last time I miscarried at 10 weeks. This time I had no bleeding and no spotting but still panicking!

Awww bless you! I was testing every Saturday using a clearblue but I’m too scare to test again in case it doesn’t say 3 plus! I’m sorry to hear about your misscarriage , did you have bleeding? It must be s good sign you have had no bleeding x I have everything crossed for you for Wednesday x

I hope you also get your mind at peace on Tuesday! No bleeding what so ever this time so hoping it’s a positive sign. 👍

I didn’t have many symptoms at all before my scan and everything was fine. I know what you mean about being off food, I just eat what I fancy as and when I feel like it. Soup, sandwiches, fruit things like that have been my go to! I have another scan tomorrow where I should be about ten weeks, I’m a nervous wreck to be honest but I just keep telling myself ‘today I am pregnant’ and trying to get through a day at a time. Got everything crossed for you xxxx

Thanks for the message! I’m completely nervous, can even visualise the scan without my eyes filling up ! I’ve been enjoying cheese sandwiches! I’m still eating my teas but not really fancying it as I used to! Let me know how you get in tomorrow x

TBH for me i dint not had any symptoms till 2/3 months , i was so scared to go for 7 weeks scan as i didnot had any symptoms but as soon as i saw my babys heartbeat i was so emotional and then i knew its not compulsory to have symptoms in preganancy.

So relax and be positive. Everything will be alright . xx

I’ve not been off food as such, but really don’t fancy eating. And I’m extremely nauseous. Can be any time of day, I wake up feeling hungry and sick and it continues for most of the day. I’ve got a headache most of the time too and extremely tired! I have my scan on Wednesday, I think that will make me 7weeks6days...if I’ve calculated right! Hope everything goes well tomorrow x

It’s horrible isn’t it! And when I do fancy something I make it then go off it pretty quickly! Ginger biscuits I’ve found helpful z

I know that feeling ! I seem to want the foods I wouldn't normally eat in large quantities I fancy things like chips and gravy and cheese! Not letting myself eat that all the time!

Chips and cheese is my massive downfall lately 😂 it’s the only thing I can eat without feeling bad! Haha so bad! I’m trying to eat fruit etc in the morning so if I do have it it’s not as bad x
