Well this is it. Today is scan day. I am about 20% excited and 80% scared. I am terrified they will tell me it's all a mistake or something has gone wrong. Had no sleep last night and a little cry this morning. Mostly I am upset that I am letting my worrying get in the way of my excitement. I am not usually this much of a worrier and I am usually really positive about things.
Roll on 11.10am
Hello to all that follow x

Hi LP good luck for today. Just wanted to say that I think how you're feeling is normal. I remember feeling
the same way when I was first scanned with Isla. I had a little cry in the scanning room as I was so pleased they actually found a baby in there! Let us know how you get on.
AFM only one full day at work this week out of three and that was yesterday. MW wants to do a home visit on Thursday to finish off booking appointment but she doesn't know when she'll arrive as it depends on births over night and that morning and I have a half day for scan in Friday. I could get used to this! Meeting up with a friend this afternoon. Not much planned this morning. Hi to all that follow x

LP- good luck with the scan. I feel a similar way. Let us know how it goes and just try to enjoy it.
MrsB- not long until our scans! 3 days!!!
AFM- not alot going on, going to try to get some housework done today. Hoping the sun will be out today. Counting down to scan on Friday. 3 days!

Mummysimpson I'm so excited. Feels like I've been waiting ages to get to 12 weeks.

Good luck today LP, I was exactly the same yesterday and felt sick with the nerves, the midwife told me everyone is like that so at least you know we are all at it.
MrsB and Mummysimpson, not long til your scans either! A big week for scanning for the first tri-ers!
I thought you might like you see my scan picture, I had a serious oh my god we're having a baby moment last night but I think I'm ok now.

What a great picture Tina! x

Good luck for today LP. Let us know how you get on! Such an exciting time.
I hope the next 3 days go quick for people waiting for scans. I still have a week to wait! I was going to phone to try and move it forward as I will be approx. 14 weeks next Tuesday but I was getting really stressed about it all so I had a chat with H and we decided to just leave it be. I am feeling the same and just wanting some confirmation that there is still a baby in there and my plump middle isn't JUST down to eating lots of chocolate!
Lovely scan Tina. Can't wait to see a few more scan flashes over the coming week!
23/04/2013 at 08:44
Lovely picture tina! Hope it goes well today lp. I still have 5 weeks to wait and its dragging!
23/04/2013 at 09:03
Mrs B - Lovely week for you then :-) Lucky thing.
Mrs Simpson - If the sun is out don't do housework, get out in it! :-)
23/04/2013 at 09:05
Oh tina that is fab! Great pic!
Isn't someone else having a scan today too? I am sure there was someone
23/04/2013 at 09:17
TT - Fa picture!!
LP - I bet you are not alone - I will be a mess before ours ( if it ever decides to be the 28th of MAy - seriously why did I find out so early - I am rubbish at waiting!!) Hope it all goes well and you too get a fabby photo like TT :o)
Mermaid when is your scan?
23/04/2013 at 09:30
Same as you weeme! 28th may. Have an early one at 8 wks next week too x
23/04/2013 at 09:55
Good luck for scan LP. Will look out for update from you
Enjoy your working "week" MrsB. Very well organized!!
MS - sitting in the garden counts as housework I'm sure :-)
Lovely pic Tina - hope you can relax a bit now
Fingers crossed for your scan Sam
Mermaid - bet you can wait till next week!
Weeme - I'm with you on why did we test early? My stupid app on phone STILL has me pegged at 4weeks. Really??
AFM - LO is still coughing and sneezing. Booo. I took her to softplay anyway yesterday she enjoyed it but then slept for ages. That's okay by me, least we got out! Today we are going to walk to market for veggies, pop into butcher and then do baking this afternoon - namely apple strudel!

Right, I am off. Taking deep breaths and keeping it together so far. Speak to all in a bit. Thank you for your support this morning x x x
23/04/2013 at 10:41
Good Luck Little Pixie!!
Tina that is amazing!! thank you for sharing!
Those of you that have had or are having early scans, are you they done privately. Is it for extra/early reassurance?
23/04/2013 at 10:59
Thanks all, I am getting no work done today as I keep staring at the pic! I've changed my ticker now as yesterday's measurements put me 3 days further on than I thought. Fast forwarding to 2nd tri soon!
Mrs Bass, I had a private scan as I had very few symptoms to start with, and there was a run of bad news on here which led to use losing a lot of the 1st tri girls :( In the end I decided that I'd rather pay for an early scan and either know the worst, or relax a bit, than make it through another 5 weeks of paranoia.
23/04/2013 at 11:38
Mrs Bass, I am having an early scan as I had a mc at 9 weeks in my first pregnancy and then bled with my son, so it is just for peace of mind. We are still keeping it quiet until our 12 week scan though, all being well.

If you were around yesterday you may have seen that I finally got my BFP! I am so flippin' excited, but also scared (that's normal right??).
There are lots of familiar faces over here (I've been lurking, and know some of you from TTC) but for those that don't know me:
I'm Penny (not really, but you know what I mean), been married to my lovely H since last June. I'm 27 and my H turned 30 yesterday - the BFP was his surpise birthday present! This is our first baby. I live on the London/Kent borders and work in marketing. I used to be a bit of lurker on Hitched.I've been very active on the TTC threads and we tried for 5 months (but we only had 3 long cycles) to get our bfp. I'm excited to be here!
Now I'll attempt personals.... :-)
LP - sending you lots of positive vibes for your scan - everything will be fine. x
MrsB - hello! Hope you have a nice afternoon with your friend.
TT - aaaaaah your scan has made me all gooey. I'm so excited for you :-)
Horsefan - hiya! Hope your LO feels better soon.
mummysimpson, mermaid, weeme Mrs Bass and samjh87 - hi *waves*. Look forward to getting to know you all a bit better.

I am still so pleased that your "BFP for hubby's birthday" plan actually came true, Penny! Amazing!
23/04/2013 at 13:28
I know, I still can't believe it. I must be psychic or something, cos I've been having that dream for ages!
