[Solved] 12 week scan
Finally got the date of our 12 week scan (although we'll be 13+2 at that point).
I keep switching between being over the moon at finally being able to see the baby for the first time, and fear that we've had a MMC or something else will be wrong.
I'm a person who deals with facts and information so this whole not actually knowing anything and having just a line on a stick and my wife's other symptoms to go on has been bloody annoying for me!!!
I'm sure I'm not alone in having these feelings or paranoia/dread/fear and keep trying to reassure myself.
Anyway - what should I expect from the scan? I've read up but what were your real life experiences?
The scan for my son was over 13 years ago, but from what I remember I was quite underwhelmed by the whole thing, it e
Wasn't that I wasn't excited about things but I think I'm more of a hands on person so seeing the heartbeat and picture didn't really do much.
My ex was very emotional over things which I think is a lot more normal and probably what is expected.
I think I was moore facinated by the technology than anything (27 years ago) - the 3D scans now would be even more so for me 🙂
Those 3D scans look weird to me!! Not sure we'll be bothering to fork out all that money for one!
Be a relief to get it out the way though and be able to finally talk about it!
Well, scan was yesterday.
Spent all morning switching between excitement and fear.
But - all was well. all bits and bobs in the right place!
Can hand on heart say, seeing it move, suck its thumb and hear it's heart beating was single handedly the most amazing thing I have ever witnessed!
Roll on the next 6 months!
...it helps make it all the more real! There's a real little person in there, growing at a super fast rate and now you have the proof!
Make the most of the next 6 months, as when your little one arrives life will change forever....in a good way, most of the time!

All the best
Cheers Mojo - will take a look over those pages!
Wow - can't believe my post was 5 months ago and today we've reached the 34 week milestone!!
6 weeks to go if the little lady decides to be on time!
If she's anything like me though she'll no doubt be early.
Cannot wait to meet her and become a Dad!
It's a girl? Congratulations and good luck for your daughter's safe arrival.
It is indeed - and thank you!! 🙂
