Post subject: 3rd pregnancy!!!!!!!!!
I'm 35 and 6 weeks pregnant, I have previously had 2 miscarriages and am worried sick that something will go wrong, like all us pregnant mums I assume!!
My midwife has offered me an early scan but said it may be best if I can to wait til bout 10 weeks as there is more to be seen.
Any suggestions??? x

I'm 24 and have 1 DS who is nearly 6, and I too have had 2 previous miscarriages before conceiving this one!
I am also 6 weeks pregnant and rang my Early Pregnancy Advisory Centre at my local hospital to see if I can be booked in for a scan. The midwife who helped me with my last miscarriage told me to ring up at 6 weeks, but the midwife I spoke to yesterday told me to wait until 8 weeks, as it will be more clear and I won't be worrying so much if I just see a little blob!
I think we'll both just have to try and be patient! Even though it's incredibly hard as I've got everything crossed for this pregnancy!

hi, im 15 wks pregnant with second child...i had no end of problems with bleeding ect for the first 9 weeks, my first scan was at 6 weeks 4 days, it showed a healthy heart beat which was the main thing, i then had another at 8 wks 4 days where again we saw and heard the heartbeat by the ultrasound scan so i would advise if your really worried get in early for the scan as it was good for peace of mind to know the heart was beating.

I am about 9 weeks preg now and I suffered a miscarriage and I am proper paranoid - the slightest litle thing and i think its going to go wrong
i was told that i could have a scan at 6 weeks when i had my miscarrigae but on attending the doctors (first midwife apt) she said i would just have to wait until my 12 week scan - 18th feb cant come quick enough for me

Hi there, yes I'm totally paranoid 2, its easy for family to tell you not to worry isn't it. Well my mw told me to ring the ante natal clinic direct and let them know my history and they kindly booked me in for next week.
My mc were missed too ao didn't loose the babies myself and only found out on scans that all had gone wrong. I'm having cramps too so every one I have I worry.
Worry worry worry ha ha it doesn't do us good does it

I know what ur saying all i hear is that people know people who have had miscarriages and have gone on to have healthy babies and it will be ok
its easier said than done though - its the most horrible thing to go through and cant describe it to anyone they just dont understand
i dunno whether to ring up now to try and get an early scan - im at the week i lost it the last time so its a very worrying time at the min anyway
Oh well fingers crossed

Ye I totally understand, it takes over doesn;t it, its all you think about 24/7. Oh i would defo give them a call and explain how worried you are and they should squeeze you in, tell them that all the worry is really not good for you and a quick early scan will put your mind at rest. They were lovely in my hospital and should understand.
Let me know how you get on

O poor you, I can understand I bet it feels like ages away it will be here before you know it. What area do you live in then?
How you feeling, talk about worrying silly my nausea hasn't been as bad the last 2 days so I'm worried something has gone wrong again. Tiredness real bad tho and boobs weigh a tonne.
