I have my first scan today (10w+2d) I've been so anxious and excited this entire month thinking this day would never come and now... I'm getting cold feet! I'm not stressing myself too much over it but all I can do is count down the minutes until 2:45 (the time of my appointment) and I am so SCARED, petrified even... thinking nothing is going to be ok but I don't know why I'm having these thoughts all of a sudden... is this normal or am I crazy?!! anyone else have something similar during their 1st scan?
also, I heard the 1st scan is always vaginal and that they give you a pap smear as well... i feel like I'm going to be picked and pried all day in front of my mom and partner and i don't know how comfortable I'm going to feel because my nerves are shot and all i want is to get to the part where i see my baby.. can someone who's had a scan or anyone with a similar issue or scare please respond... you ladies typically put my mind at ease and i ESPECIALLY need comfort today!!!
sorry for the scared rant

if you don't mind, what all did they do at your first scan? the only thing i am anticipating is the vaginal ultrasound of course and maybe them taking blood work and having me pee in a cup or something... but i am honestly clueless that's just my assumption. thank you for your reply and wishes for you a beautiful, healthy, happy, miracle

I was ill and admitted into hospital and to see if baby is ok they did a scan so it wasnt proper like what you will have today. As i said my 1st actual dating scan is thursday so hopeing you can tell us now how it went!! X

At 10 weeks they won't need to do a vaginal scan as the baby is big enough to see on a abdominal one. 1st apts consist of scan, bloods & urine test & meeting the doc... That's it... No big worries! Good luck!

I'll for sure let you ladies know how the scan went! I'll post a picture on here if i can figure out how to do that & oh don't get me wrong i am hope for an abdominal scan, they just told me it would "most likely" be a vaginal scan the 1st 2 times that i come in... sounded odd to me as well

I had my first scan at 10 week and they was able to see everything was fine with abdominal but at my dating scan they needed to do a internal scan,which was weird and uncomfortable at first but a much clearer picture of baby,it shouldn't matter if you do either, long as you see everything is good
Good luck with scan today x
