    Your tummy is doing a lot of stretching and getting ready to grow so cramps and stitch like pain is normal.
    At my 12 week scan I was called into the sonographers room and lay down on the bed. They squirt stuff on your tummy and rub the scanner thing over you to see the baby. You can see it on the screen while the sonographer is doing it and she might point out bits that you can see like the hands. They take a pic that you can buy (ours was £4 and you had to buy a token from the machine).
    After that I saw the hospital mw who weighed me and gave me a load of bumf & advertising/leaflets but the book with the Bounty pack application form was in it.

    That was about all. We were in and out in about half an hour. It's very painless!

    The pain is normal, just things stretching and growing.
