I will be 7+4 tomorrow and having my first scan for this pregnancy. My only previous experience of pregnancy scans has been pretty distressing with my last pregnancy ending in a MMC at 10 weeks after seeing a strong heartbeat twice before at 7 & 8 weeks - I never want to see my baby has died on a monitor again so I will be asking them not to show me it tomorrow. I know that nothing I do can change the outcome but I’m totally terrified of walking into that room tomorrow and being told the same thing all over again. Its all I can imagine as it’s all I know. I do have symptoms my boobs are sore, I’m totally exhausted (2 naps a day some days), I get waves of nausea if I don’t eat little and often and I’m constantly thirsty.
There isn’t much point to this other than I just need some words of encouragement that I can face this - quite honestly I’d like to hide under a rock until the first trimester is over but I know I need to know! For ladies who’ve been in this situation how did you cope and summon the courage for a scan after a previous miscarriage? Xx
