Since I had a little "scare" this weekend I was given a scan today just to check everything was ok with the baby and to confirm the due date. I probably won't get a scan at 12 weeks now, as it is only a couple of weeks away and they managed to confirm the dates. I was so nervous before we went in today, and as soon as she said "see, there's the heartbeat" i burst into tears of relief! It was amazing!!! I saw the heartbeat and the baby moved around and everything! The picture was clearer on the screen than the printed pictures, but I suspect it would have been clearer if I was skinny - in fairness I do have a bit of extra "padding"! it's not easy to see what is where, so this might help! i'm so relieved and happy you won't believe!!!
