I have my first scan on Monday will be 7 weeks 2 days. Really cant shift the feeling that something will be wrong. Haven't had many symptoms and the ones I did have seem to have gone this morning - not sure if I am just worrying myself sick for no reason. I know what will be will be but think i'm upsetting myself more with google. Just cant seem to think of anything else or relax. Going to be the longest weekend EVER. My partner doesn't seem too worried as we had a scan at 5 weeks and the yolk and everything was there and they didn't seem concerned but as I say - google. Putting the fear of god into me
7 week scan ANXIETY & NERVES!!! - Fertility Network UK
I wrote something similar a few weeks ago - we had a scan at 7 wks 6 days. I was a mess beforehand. All was ok thankfully and it settled my nerves. But as time goes on I am getting nervous for our next one!
I sympathise with the waiting it is torture!! Try to distract yourself if you can and keep as busy as possible this weekend.
Hope time flies for you. 💕💕💕
So hard. The 7 week scan is very reassuring so you will feel better once you have gotten the all clear from this.
This is my first ever pregnancy so I am anxious too.
The waits between scans are very hard in this early stage. We paid for an 11 week scan next week just as a reassurance before we go on holiday.
Hope you can try to take your mind off it a little bit this weekend - I know that is almost impossible!
Sending you hugs - you are not alone. Everyone on here feels the same before these scans.
Yeah I am hoping and praying it goes well and will ease my mind!
Its nice to know im not alone as ive been starting to feel a little crazy
Really hope the 11 week scan reassures you and you enjoy your holiday!
Ive found being at work worse as I sit in my office on my own and that's when I find myself googling things - as I said my partner isn't that worried he said they didn't seem worried or concerned at the 5 week scan they said things were as they should be at that stage so there is no reason to worry. He doesn't seem to see things from my point but maybe that's just his way?
Well I am unemployed at the moment so have WAY too much time on my hands - so similar if you are on your own in your office. Dr Google is always there. 👩💻
My OH doesn't really express his worry and I do not know if he does even worry! So maybe sounds like yours. He always believes things are going to work out fine! But it doesn't help me as I feel like he doesn't have a clue 🤣
Well you have gotten this far I know you can survive until Monday 😀 and post your feelings on here anytime and the other ladies will help.
What you are feeling is totally normal.
Fingers crossed you can get some peace with the results on Monday. Get yourself a big slice of cake after 😋
Oh yes you have time for your mind to wander too - not good at all is it?
I feel my OH doesn't have a clue either but I think the fact he really isn't worried makes me feel slightly calmer in a way as he is the more rational of the two of us.
Thank you so much for your reassurance and kind words it really does help. xxx
Fingers crossed for Monday 😀😀😀
The waiting is so tough. I didn't have many symptoms and had no sickness, and I was convinced before my 8 week scan and then before my 12 week scan that everything was going to go wrong. I think I only relaxed after my 16 week midwife appointment. Keep busy, and treat yourself, it will go quickly xx
Hello, I think we all go through the same at that stage. I know I was completely the same and spent the entire weekend before our 7 weeks scan googling and upsetting myself for no good reason! I have had very few pregnancy symptoms throughout and am now 12 weeks pregnant. The ones I did have disappeared completely for two weeks so I also paid for a private scan at 9 weeks despite having had a perfect scan at 7 weeks. IVF has made me paranoid that something is going to go wrong but i’m finally starting to relax and enjoy being pregnant so hopefully you will too. Good luck lovely and,if you can, keep yourself busy and step away from Dr Google!! Keep us posted on your scan, will be thinking of you Xxx
You’re definitely not the only one. Your hubby sounds like mine, we need them to keep us sane! I think the scans have only reassured me for a short time afterwards and then I start to become crazy again 😂 I had an emergency scan a couple of weeks ago because I had a bleed which is apparently completely normal during early pregnancy and again everything was fine with baby but I already can’t wait until the next scan! I wish we had a little window to see what was going on in there! Lots of love to you xxx
