    Don't know what to do with myself today. I'm having my first scan at 2.30 this afternoon and I don't know whether it's the excitement of that or whether I made my coffee too strong or just the re-energizing of getting towards the second trimester, but I just can't sit still or concentrate on anything for more than about 3 seconds. Feel like someone's slipped me some drugs I'm so scattered...

    Is it just me or did anyone else experience anything like this?

    :D

    Hello

    Yes I felt the same at my 12 week scan last week. Was almost hyperventalating by the time the scanned me :lol: I was like it for a few days after too and couldn't stop looking at my scan pics.
    Enjoy!

    Thanks LouisecH I don't feel quite so mad! I guess it is excitement, but I've been so used to being completely wiped out that this feels really wierd :D

    boo boo as far as I can tell the first scan is partly a dating scan - to get a better idea of just how far along you are - and partly for the nuchal translucency screening (depending on whether your hospital offers that test).

    I geuss it was the excitement.

    Have been told that I'm 9 weeks and 6 days along, which is less than the doctors had said before, but I didn't really believe them really as my periods were sooo irregular that the usual method of counting didn't really seem to apply.

    Have to go back for another scan for the NT test and stuff in a couple of weeks, but it is nice to have seen my baby and have a picture to look at...
