    Hi, I am just back from having my scan, with what a thought was a 3 month pregnancy so far, but it turns out I am only 6 weeks!! I am gutted in the fact that I thought I was past the "danger" period of 3 months. All they could see on the scan was the sack with a pounding heart beat, but no definition of a baby. They said that it's fine, but I am a little concerned and deflated. (been in floods of tears!) x

    K,

    How exciting although I'd be a mess too.

    I'm hoping that when I go for mine they tell me I'm further along than what I am.....if I'm shorter I'll be a mess.....it just feels long to go doesn't it.

    Although, I was looking at a book yesterday and by the time Xmas comes around I'm going to be gy-normous! Bewdy, more Roast for me on Xmas Day.

    Take care darl,

    Sass

    Hi Sass, thanks. I am concerned too, as I already have a round tummy (which I never used to have) and I am only 6 weeks!! Oh dear, I think I will look like a beached whale at Xmas, and it's my bday on Xmas Eve!! How nice will we look over the festivities!

    Take care.

    K xx

    HA HA HA.

    I must get off my backside and go for a swim.....I've been meaning to go for a week now. After this I'm off!

    Had been playing tennis alot too before I found out and haven't played since but I must get back into it, I'm already feeling obsessed with the whole thing and I don't want to be. Must stop watching all those birth programmes on Discovery as well.......

    Bye!

    Hi K,
    Did they provide you with any explantation? Doesnt' make sense you thinking you're 3 months and them saying 6 weeks. Sounds like the baby is doing okay though so I don't think you need worry.

    Hiya K

    It seems likely that you will have another scan at 20 weeks, which will be a little more accurate...if there is a discrepancy in your dates it should be picked up here.

    Take Care

    Hi S, They didn't give me a proper explanation other than my periods must of went a bit wonky and the doctor has calculated the date wrong.

    Midwife online- I live in Edinburgh, and up in Scotland you are only supposed to have 1 scan which is at 3 months, unlike in England where you get two (I think). I would much rather prefer having one at 20 weeks just to make sure everything is still ticking along fine. I go for my next scan on July 20th by then I will definitley be 3 months or over. My partner is from Manchester so I should maybe move down there and get one at 20 weeks.

    Thanks guys. ;o)

    hi, I am 9 weeks on Monday and still really worried. I can't wait for those next 3 weeks so I can start to sleep again. After reading most of the messages on here thats ok we are normal!!! the good news for you is that at only 6 weeks they could see a heart beat. I had a m/c in october and when I went for the 6 week scan there was no heart beat. So try not to worry too much it looks like everthing is going to plan.

    Hi K

    Although you're really dissappointed that you're not further along as originally thought it must be really reassuring seeing the heartbeat on screen.

    I live in Lanarkshire in Scotland and in our area we get 2 scans - 12 wks and 20 wks so it must vary on region to region
