Since then just the thought of going into a scanning room makes me so anxious I feel on the verge of a nervous breakdown!
I had a scan last week at 8 dating scan anxiety 4, and saw a heartbeat and saw the baby moving quite a bit Before they even did the scan I suddenly burst into tears and kinds went to pieces. Now I am worried that in a few weeks at the 12 week scan there might be no heartbeat. Anyone got any advice how they coped? When do you girls feel you will be able to relax a bit in your pregnancies? Any girls on here in 2nd or 3rd tri with some hopeful stories?

For me it comes in waves - half the time I'm happy and excited and rubbing my bump and the other half I'm imagining the worst.

I know the feeling all to well hun, its not easy. My first scan during this pregnancy i was in tears from the mintue i got to th hospital till after we got out, and have cried going for every scan so far I got moved forward to 14 weeks today by scan, and i feel better now im past the stage i lost max atfor me it hasnt been any easier up until now, but im hoping from now on it will get easier.
Good luck with future scans x There isnt really any tips or anything dating sligo try not to think about it, the one thing i always done was just ask the scan person to dating scan anxiety me first thing straight away if things were ok or not, not to sit looking for ages x.

I could do with the same advise, I suffered a mmc march of this year got told at our 12 week scan that our little one had died at 10 weeks. I'm now pregnant again and have a scan next week I should be 8 weeks but obviously I know that could changed I'm so scared about it.
The only thing I can say is try and keep busy in the build up to the scan so you dont have time to think about it, we're away this weekend so have been busy and dont get back home till late monday and our scan is on the tues. A plus side is this scan is in a different place to our last one so I wont have the memories of sitting in the same waiting room just the memory of the scan but I know our 12 week will be at the same place we went in march Dating scan anxiety just know I dating scan anxiety be a mess but my hubby is great such a support.
Take it one day at a time and try not to worry is all I can say I know easier said than done and make sure you have plenty of support. Good luck with everything. Thanks Lucy, hope your scan goes well next week. Oct 10th, I have had bad experiences at 9week, 12week and 16week scans! I am petrified when i go.

They just get me in asap and always give me a running commentary. I hardly speak before as i am terrified, and they are so good with me. The first time i went there with my last pregnancy they asked if i didn't speak much english as i was so quiet!
