First scan this morning, really scared! *Update and scan picture (hope that's OK)*

First scan this morning, really scared! *Update and scan picture (hope that's OK)*

So I have made it to 7 weeks 1 day and this last week I have been feeling more and more anxious as the days go by...

What if there is nothing there, or there's no heartbeat? I haven't had any morning sickness, my boobs hurt less, I just don't know what is normal and I'm going slightly crazy 🤪

Please keep your fingers, toes and legs crossed for me!! 💙 Xx

Update: So there actually IS a baby in there, saw the heartbeat pounding away... So weird! And it is measuring at 7w2days, so bigger but that's probably because we're both quite tall.. I'm gonna have a massive baby lol. I have been discharged from the clinic too and have my first midwife appointment next weds! 💙

Thank you everyone for being so kind and I wish you all the best.. 😘

Good luck Michelle, i’m a couple of weeks ahead and know exactly how you feel!! You will be absolutely fine. I had no nausea until 8.5 weeks and my off and on boobs stopped hurting at all at exactly 7 weeks and I was terrified but all was good. Thinking of you and looking forward to an update v soon 🙏🏼😘xxx

I am - no bleeding at the moment - just brown spots. I hate that I can’t get excited about this. The waiting is torture and not knowing what is going on is even worse

Reply

Yeh I totally agree, we think the first two weeks are the hardest but in actual fact, it doesn't get any easier. I'm hoping the brown spotting will completely stop, it can't be nice having any kind of blood. Fingers crossed xx

Best of luck! Let us know how it goes!

Exciting! Xxx

Yeh so weird to see it beating away! She said it was measuring at 10mm, not sure if that's big or not. I was a big and long baby lol. Fingers crossed it stays where it should xxx

Reply

I have no idea lol! I had mine at 7 weeks 5 and was measuring at 13.8mm which apparently is spot on for that date. Like you say though, we are all different! You may just have an extra tall baby 😊 xxx

I read online that 10mm is quite normal, so fingers crossed I don't give birth to a baby elephant lol

It won't be much longer until your 12 week scan, how are you feeling? Are you getting excited? Xx

Reply

Ha ha no I'm sure you'll be fine...just don't mistake the umbilical cord for a trunk at your next scan 😂

I'm excited and nervous. I think I'll have a long wait as I will be 12 weeks the day before we go on holiday so I think I'll be closer to 14 weeks by the time I actually have it! May book in for a private one beforehand to give us peace of mind while we are away 😊

Still have zero symptoms! Did you manage to download any apps or are the cat pictures still taking over? Lol xxx

Hahaha. Funny!

I'm thinking of doing a private scan before my 12w so I reckon you should to 😆 I reckon it would definitely give you peace of mind.

Yeh downloaded the two you said, fortunately I didn't have to erase any cat pictures 🐱 I don't have many symptoms yet, apart from being a lot more tired and if I don't eat (which is constantly atm) then I feel a bit queasy. Xx

I now consider myself lucky that I haven't been throwing up, although it would have been nice to have lost a couple pounds and not put them on lol. It's like we want all the symptoms to confirm something is there and think something is wrong when there aren't... But I suppose we're all different and actually our symptoms are normal. We just don't normally have anything to compare it to as we've never been in this position before! 💙 The scan definitely makes it real, like it's definitely there lol. Xxx

Currently on day 9 and broken my promise not to use google 😂 feel like period due, which is how I felt with my BFN. So not feeling too hopeful but trying to keep some hope ... nearly there!

Lovely news for you though, must be a mixture of nerves and excitement!! Xxx

You have done so well not to Google for this long and not do a sneaky test lol.

I constantly felt like my period was coming, still do sometimes! So that might not mean bfn hun. I remember half way through not having any symptoms apart from the feeling of a period arriving.

Think I'm more nerves than excited.. Past couple of days I don't feel at all pregnant, not as queasy etc. I don't think I'll ever stop worrying.

Got my fingers crossed for you xx
