12 week scans this week? *update with scan pic pg1*

Mar 28th, 2010, 16:12 PM   #1
 
Hi there,

Does anyone else have their 12 week scan this week? Thought we could post our scan pictures here.

1)Are you nervous? 2)How much water are you going to drink? 3)Are you telling people straight after or have you told everyone already? 4) What day are you having yours and at what time?

My answers to those questions are:

1) Yes, I am terrified that there won't be a heartbeat. I had an early scan at 7 weeks and everything was fine but I know that doesn't guarantee everything will be ok at 12 weeks. I can't find any info about how likely it is that at 12 weeks they'd find a missed miscarriage.


2) I am going to drink 1 litre of water before I leave the house and then take another 1l bottle with me to keep topping up.

3) We've told close family and best friends but can't wait to let the rest of the world know!

4) Wednesday at 10am

try not to worry you little self 2 much im sure everything is fine but i was the same didnt stop looking online trying to find info. I did find one site that send 2% of ppl get told at there 12wk scan that there is no heartbeat and as you have already seen yours once i sure the odd's will be lower. I told the scan lady as we walked in the room how scared i was a she told me in seconds there was a heartbeat before she started doing what she needed to do as sometime they take a look for 5mins before they say a word so just ask. Sure all will be fine and cant wait to see your pic's xxxxxxxxxx

it is nerve wracking - I was so nervous I couldn't look at the screen until she said and there's the heartbeat. Even though I had had two early scans, getting over that 12 week date was a real mile stone. You will be fine and you will love it. I didn't want mine to end, was really disappointed when she said 'That's it' and we had to leave. Oh, and I had to wait 45 mins for the scan cos they were running late so don't be bursting for the loo when you arrive - I was bursting and had to go and then top up afterwards!

Good luck to you and everyone else having scans this week.

dont be tempted to drink too much! I did and all they could see was my bladder! And once it's full and they send you to empty it, it's difficult to only empty half!!

Thanks hon. Am just so nervous that something will be wrong but have made a mental pact with myself that if all is ok then no more worrying after that- just enjoy the rest.

Hi there,

Am back from the scan!

Baby was wriggling around all over the place and it was amazing to see. Heartbeat was 170bpm and length was 48mm which all sounds fab to me but they want us to come back next week because they think the baby is a few days younger than my dates suggest.

I'm not sure why they wouldn't just give us a new due date but I think because it is part of a research project they want us back when the baby is over a certain length to do all the Downs tests. I am a bit put out because they suggested that perhaps the baby is not growing properly when I tried to tell them that when I went for my early scan the dates were 3 days out.

Anyway- here is a pic of our little one!
