Morning ladies, how was everyone's weekend?
I've had a stressful weekend, mainly due to me overreacting! I'm feeling a bit better today, but on Saturday I had convinced myself that something had gone wrong as I took a test and the line was more feint than before and I'd also stopped having symptoms. But today everything feels like it did before. In my panic, I've booked an early scan for Saturday where I'll be 6+5, I'm not toying with cancelling it as I'm worried I won't actually be able to see anything and it's just going to make me more worried! I already have a scan booked for when i'll be 8+5. Any advice? Anyone have a scan at 6 weeks and see enough to be reassured?
Thanks ladies, I feel like pregnancy is making me a crazy woman!

I had my scan at 6+3 due to the bleeding and was dated at 6+5. Do you know what facilities the scan place has? I ask because from the external scan they could only see the sac and possibly the foetal pole but she wasn't sure. To find it and the heartbeat I had to have an internal scan. If they don't have the ability to do an internal scan it may not help you. I wanted to see the HB. Just seeing the sac and 'maybe' somehtign wasn't enough so when she asked if she could do an internal one I said yes straight away. If they can do an internal one then you should be able to see something but again not all HBs are there that early even though everything is OK. I think pregnancy does send you crazy so don't worry about that.
AFM I told my parents over the weekend so now everyone who we will tell before 12 weeks knows. I have felt dreadful the last few days but lots of nausea after lucnh until I go to bed then yesterday I felt a little better which only made me worry more. Grr!
Rosco 7+3 or 7+5

Thanks Rosco, that's helpful, the website says that they can do internal scans in early pregnancy (6/7 weeks) so I think I'll keep the appointment and hope I can see something, like you I'm really only interested in the HB at this stage!
Hope you're feeling a bit better today. I loved telling my mum, I bet your parents are made up for you both.

My scan was 6+4 and we saw a bean with a heartbeat. It was enough to reassure me at the time! It was internal tho, be prepared for that. Its not painful or anything.
Rosco I hear you on the worrying when you feel good. I'm exactly the same! Glad you told your parents its nice to have someone else other than H to talk to about it sometimes.
AFM - I'm getting into a terrible state about my scan on Friday. I'm really scared of something being wrong.

Rod I can't imagine what you are going through I would be exactly the same. I have no advice but try and keep busy. Have a weirdy hug and some handholding till Friday (when I'm sure all will be fine). What time is the scan do you have to wait long?
Thank you. Its at 10am so not too long.
Had real trouble sleeping last night. Argh! Wish I wasn't so worried.
