Hi yip were the same. They are scanning me every week as we had a miscarriage last time too so it's probably overboard but I think when you've had a miscarriage it makes you so anxious.cand for us we didn't know the baby was dead and plodded on merrily thinking we were pregnant. Imagine my horror at 12 weeks to see a dead baby. It's something I'll never forget so for me a scan every week is more for my mental state than anything. But I think weekly scans is the norm whe you've had a loss.cmy friends said the same after they lost one too.
We have had a few as well, but I think that was because of the weeks that we fell on, though not sure
one at 7 weeks
one at 9 weeks
our NT at 12 weeks.
then we have another in a week which will be 14 weeks. Then I think we are on a monthly scan till 8 months.
We thought it was because the 6 or 7 week scan is the last IVF scan and then you start at the OB at around 9-10 weeks.
Having said that this is our first so we know no different. We seem to having more than a friend of ours.
Also our OB has a u/s thing in his room, so we get to have a look every time.
I would love some extras to be honest. I agree its great to see and reassure us things are ok.
Went private with Ds but we are thinking going public this time as we are moving interstate within the last 2 months of pregnancy.
Definitely think you get more with private just don't want to pay the big management fee if we won't be delivering with that doctor.

We had a dating scan at 7+5 weeks, then another scan at our first OB appt at 10 weeks. The first NT scan at 11+5 weeks but bub was moving too much to measure the nuchal fold so had a second NT scan at 13+3weeks. Now we don't have another one until morphology at 18-20 weeks.
But come 3rd trimester we will probably be on weekly or fortnightly scans due to the risks that can be associated with a low PAPP-A reading.
SL - Great news about your scan!
Fingers crossed I had my last BT at my clinic for a while! Just waiting on the results, hopefully everything is at the level it should be... its funny even though everything has been going well so far I can't help but feel anxious... I don't have much typical pregnancy symptons so its very hard to beleive that it is actually happening... hanging out for my first appointment with my OB on Friday also, he has a ultrasound in his office so will hopefully get to see bub again... I tell you this process sux! All the waiting and not knowing... I am such an impatient person so I am really not suited to this at all.
Hope you are all well today!
poor you. I really feel for you with the MS. It's really awful isn't it. I sympathize.
have you tried Zofran. It's the only thing that keeps me sane!
ive been admitted twice this pregnancy for hyper Emesis. Just dreadful so I really do understand how terribly debilitating it is esp when you have another child to look after. It's so hard to be an up beat mum when you are throwing up behind trees at the park! Or feeling so I'll 24/7.
Ty the Zofran regularly rather than a one off. It's the only thing that's helped me.
Keep well. Thinking of you and all the other mums out there with MS
