I was talking to a girl in work and she has really terrified me over the amount of scans I've had in pregnancy. She has told me that my baby will be at higher risk for delayed speech, higher chance of defects and i could go into premature labour. Just a whole load of problems with it im really panicked. I had an early scan to rule out ectopic pregnancy. My dating scan, two anomaly scans (they couldn't get measurements) and I've had two additional scans due to baby having kidney problems and ill have scans now every two weeks before birth because i have gestational diabetes. So that's 6 so far then probably another 3! I haven't had any just for the sake of it all were deemed necessary except the anomaly scans which i felt were necessary at the time. If i didn't have it they might not have detected babies kidney intil after birth causing other issues. Anyone else had lots of scans and baby is okay or anyone can reassure me. I now dont know if i should let them scan me anymore even with GD but is that silly because obviously theres risks with that. Oh im stressed out now! I hope i haven't stressed anyone else out either.
