    It was my first scan but all will become clear after I post!

    I found out I was pregnant about 5 weeks ago which came as a surprise (a nice one!) to my partner and I. My doc got me booked in for a dating scan, judging by dates I could be as much as 12-14 weeks (periods were irregular).

    Yesterday I was dismayed when the letter I opened told me my appointment was tomorrow (now today) - how on earth could I get it off work? I managed to catch my boss when she came in and she absolutely insisted I go, great. Booked in with midwife, took bloods etc and went off for the scan.

    Hmm... the sonographer lady said. Heart jumped. She mentioned she was just in training but took some measurements anyway. "Er... your baby measures 23 weeks". She got her colleague in who confirmed - eek! They ended up doing an anomaly scan which was clear though my placenta is low-lying so I need to go back for a re-scan in 6 weeks. I was excited and nervous before but now I need to do some shopping! AARGH!

    :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: What a surprise! At least you've got all the scary first tri stuff out the way without even knowing about it!
    I didn't out I was pg with James until 11 weeks, and found the first tri really dragged this time around knowing from 4 weeks pg.

    Welcome to second tri, not long to go till tri 3! :cheer: :cheer:

    yikes! i agree though about the first tri dragging, especially when you know from the fourth week or so; just waiting for the 12 week scan was horrid...

    Thanks all! Was just at my Christmas night out (minus the alcohol) and I was very shocked at how protective everyone was of me now that they know!

    I would have liked to have found out if it was a boy or a girl (though OH wouldn't) but it's against the policy of my local NHS board (apparently). Surprise it is!

    I'd really better start getting bub's room organised!

    Glad all is well with baby :D and congratulations! But OH My god- you've already done half of your pg without knowing! Time really will fly by- I'm quite envious actually- the first tri REALLY seemed to go on for ever!
