So far so good

It’s been an emotional roller coaster, but after hearing my babies heartbeat yesterday at my 16 week checkup with my midwife I’m feeling more relaxed in the idea that I’m going to be a Mum.

I was a complete wreck at my 12 week scan, I couldn’t stop crying I was so scared something was going to be wrong and I’d be back at square one. I never thought I would be like this after getting a BFP, but my anxious journey was only halfway through.

I’m still emotional from the whole IVF experience, there are so many ups and downs. But I’m feeling less nervous today and actually looking forward to my 20 week scan. And I hope that I stay with this mindset and enjoy the next scan and the rest of my pregnancy.

Good luck everyone out there doing the same thing - it really is a game of luck too which is so annoying. 10 eggs and 3 IVF attempts - this was my last little embryo xx

Great news! I know what you mean about being so anxious I was before every scan (and most of the time in between). Good luck for your 20 week scan xx

Hearing the heartbeat for the first time was amazing! We videoed it and I keep playing it over and over. It feels so real now. Good luck for Tuesday xx

That’s amazing news! It’s so reassuring when others feel this way! My 12 week scan was this week and I was a wreck, before, during and after!! Some one commented that’s it’s because we’ve waited and tried so hard to get to this moment and I think that’s so true!! Wishing you all the very best for a healthy and happy remainder of your miracle pregnancy x x x

Know how anxious it is at scans and the wait before them and between them. It's all really tough,but remember all is going well for you! The baby has a good healthy heartbeat and is thriving! Try to relax now a bit. It won't be long until you see your baby at your 20 week scan. Will be really exciting for you. You will nearly be at the halfway mark through your pregnancy! Time will fly and before you know it, your precious little baby will be in your arms and you will be a mummy! Sending you a hug. Xo

Congrats on your 16 week scan. I feel the same at 11 weeks and also feel so guilty for worrying things will go wrong. I think the clinics should give you more support or at least warn you that you may have these anxieties. It took me by surprise as I thought I would stop worrying after my BFP.
