Just a rant really. I am the most impatient person in the world and I worry so much its no good for me!
Anyone else waiting for their 12 week scan? I am just over 9 weeks and my scan isn't for another 3 weeks. I am finding each day dragging so much! Any tips on passing the time?
I had some cramping at 8 weeks and midwife sent me for an early scan to check all was fine so my husband I went and all was perfect. We heard the heartbeat and the nurse said baby is the exact size it should be etc so we were over the moon but I am now so worried something has gone wrong since. I have no real reason to think it has, I just am such a worrier and cannot wait to tell people. Its just so hard waiting for the green light!
Who else is waiting like me? I know there isn't much people can say but its always nice to know other people feel the same as you!

Huge congrats on your pregnancy! Thanks for your response.
I expect this feeling is normal. I am just so bored of how long this first trimester takes! I need to just breathe and it will eventually come!
Hope all is good for you and time hurries up x

I contemplated paying for an early private scan too but my husband kept saying to wait it out so I left it and then ended up having one anyway due to the cramping. However, once I got to the hospital, they told me that cramping is very normal and they couldn't quite work out why I was sent for one but it was lovely and made us happy.
I wuold recommend having one, it will make you feel fab and I have been told that if you hear a heartbeat at 8 weeks then the chance of miscarriage lowers to 2% as oppose to the 20% it is throughout the first 12 weeks. I need to keep reminding myself of that! I just know people where they have got to 12 weeks and been told the baby has no heartbeat and i think thats why it scares me so much. Fingers crossed all will be good.
Let me know how yours goes - exciting!! X

Im at natural worrier too been getting like shooting pains in my side sometimes but ive read that it can be everything moving and streaching so trying not to worry!

Awww yay HUGE CONGRATS to you! I am very happy for you!
I expect I will be like you and worry the entire pregnancy and countdown everything. I think the 12 week scan is such a milestone as its the time its deemed 'safe' to tell people and I am so sick of not telling people now! I cannot wait! Think that is what makes it so damn long haha.
Are you googling things? You sounds just like me haha! Anything I feel and I google it to check its ok. xx

yeah i google everything! some of what you read just makes you more scared though! i've a few friends who have just had or are expecting soon as well so i often ask them to get their take on things too! Ill just be glad when its all over and i have my wee bundle in my arms.... but then i guess i'll be worrying about different things then! x

Hi I'm like bonnie just found out I'm pregnant every little cramp or anything is a worry hoping that my little seed is settling in nicely its hard to take mind of it. I try to think of other things so days go faster but yeah mind always goes back to the little seed growing inside me.
I know how you feel with your friend just a having a baby and it feels like yesterday she told you she was pregnant my sister is like that I feel she only just told me she was pregnant and now she is 21 weeks I'm like why can't mine go that fast lol.
Hope for a happy and healthy next 3 weeks jojo and you get to see your little one healthy and bouncing around.
