Sensitive Post - 12 week scan 🙂

Hi All,

Just really to give hope and reassurance to ladies in early pregnancy with no symptoms! I had FET of our only frozen embryo in April. Worked full time in a busy, active physical job throughout the 2ww. Got a faint BFP at 11dp5dt. Had absolutely no symptoms, and that is still the case! That caused me so much anxiety, I've been convinced something was going to go wrong. Scans at 8+0, 10+6 and today at 12+1 have all been perfect and today our little wiggler was moving around so much the sonographer struggled to do the measurements! Hopefully I can begin to relax a bit now - I so want to enjoy this pregnancy after so long trying to get here.

The very best of luck to all of you still waiting for your day. Its such an incredibly tough journey and I feel so fortunate that I only needed one fresh and one frozen transfer to get to where we are.

Much love to you all xx

Congratulations. Try and relax and enjoy you're pregnancy. I was(still am) in the same situation, I'm just over 8 weeks and had 1st scan yesterday and my jelly bean is fine, but I was convinced I had lost as I have no symptoms at all. Still haven't. Xx

It's really hard isn't it? In some ways I'm thanking my lucky stars that I'm not being sick, can eat happily and generally get on with things but it is scary! I had a private scan at 10+6 because I wasn't coping very well and it really helped. Have you been to GP / got you booking appointment scheduled yet? I always find it easier when I know when the next appointment is. Hang in there and keep ticking off the days!

Well I was discharged from my clinic yesterday and today I put my request in for a midwife so hoping it doesn't take too long. It said on my form that a midwife come out to see you between 8 and 10 weeks so I don't have too long to wait hopefully. Same I can eat what I feel like and not have to worry about being sick. The only thing I've struggled with is being tired all the time, but I'm hoping to go back to work next week as I've been off for 6 weeks due to my job being heavy. So hoping that will get me back into a normal pattern. I was so relieved when I had my scan yesterday and saw a strong heartbeat. I'm also glad I found this group as its been my life saver lol xxx

That is great congratulations, here's sending you lots of luck for a safe and happy journey, keep calm and try and enjoy some of it. I am still very early days and I have my 7 week scan next week and time is standing still right now, it can be so nerve wrecking. I hope this scan has give you some confidence for the rest of the time ahead. xx

Thank you! Lots of luck for your scan - it is a tough wait and you're right, time does go incredibly slowly! I tried to keep busy in an effort to not focus on it all the time but it's hard to think about anything else! Hang in there, won't be much longer x

Thanks, when I get to 12 weeks will be more confident and to see the heartbeat must be amazing. Sounds like you have had a tough time with no symptoms it just goes to show you? I have had no sickness just tiredness???

Huge congratulations 💕😊 I’m the same, Hardly any symptoms. My 12 week scan is next week. I’ve been so worried that I’ve been to two private scans and all is well. Xxx After my last scan I have chilled out a bit as I want to enjoy it too as it’s taken us years and years to finally get pregnant 😊💕 xxx

Thank you, and good luck!

Congratulations. In waiting for the date of my 12 week scan, so a minimum of 3 weeks away as I'm 9 weeks today. Only had a scan yesterday and eager to get to the next one! Good luck! And congratulations 😀🥰

Thank you! I recommend chasing them for scan date - I know several people who were waiting ages and eventually rang to find that the hospital hadn't booked anything, you have to do it yourself. Might not be the case where you are but a quick phone call probably wouldn't hurt!

Sorry to but into this conversation but I’m just over 10 weeks now and still haven’t got a date through yet for my scan.. I’ve tried ringing the hospital but can’t get through to anyone, it’s so frustrating! Any idea what to do?

Overjoyed to read this post ... I am 7+1 and have an early reassurance scan booked for 9+2 ... other than feeling tired and bloated with tender boobs I haven't felt any different so started to worry that I had imagined it all or that it was a false positive ... this post gives me hope xx Good Luck with it all xx

Reply

Glad it makes you feel a bit better. No symptoms does seem to be more common than I thought! Good luck xx

Congratulations, its good to hear success stories, if all is well for my 12 week scan (in 4 weeks time) I will post the same thing, ive not had any symptoms apart from being super bloated from the extra progesterone so its good to hear similar stories. Good luck for an uneventful healthy pregnancy x

Congratulations great news!! Don’t worry about the lack of symptoms too much my sister had none throughout her pregnancy not even sore boobs and her baby is now nearly 3 weeks old xx

Great news and congrats to you.

You have made my day.

I like you have little symptons apart from tiredness but then I teach 5 year olds and it is near the end of the school year. I've been lucky to have scans and seen heartbeat and now umbilical chord. I have my 12 week scan in 10 days and really hoping to feel a little more relaxed after that.

Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy

Thank you! I work with children as well so difficult to tell where the tiredness comes from! Definitely more weary than normal but I am having to get up for a wee at least twice every night so not surprising I suppose! I hope the next 10 days don't go too slowly for you, all the best x

Really pleased that everything went well! Wishing you all the best for the rest of your pregnancy.xx

Thank you! How are you getting on? I hope that lining of yours is behaving itself this time! Got everything crossed for you x

It seems to be ok at the moment thanks. Scans were ok so flying out on Sat for transfer Tuesday. I always have the fear that it will disappear. Had a nightmare last week that it fell out....looked like a fillet steak in my dream! Ha ha ha ha Yes Im officially crazy, and that's even before the 2ww!! Eeeeek!xx

Oh wow, the things this process does to our minds! Great news that it's looking good so far - very best if luck for transfer, I'll be thinking of you x
