Early pregnancy scan

So I am in equal parts excited and apprehensive about my early pregnancy scan scheduled for this week. If all goes well, I will feel more confident and reassured about this pregnancy, but I also haunted by the fear that the scan will show a non-viable pregnancy.

Generally from 6 ½ -7 weeks is the time when a heartbeat can be detected and viability can be assessed. The presence of an embryonic heartbeat is a  sign of the health of the pregnancy, so I am praying for some reassurance. Actually as I write these words, I can feel my anxiety going up another notch, so I better leave it there for now…

    I can read the stress in your words. Try not to worry – I know that is easy for me to say, but all that worrying won’t change the outcome and isn’t helping either you or the baby – I say that with love sweetie xxxx

    What will be, will be… I know that sounds cruel but it’s reality.

    I’m crossing everything for you.
