So I went for a dating scan this week... doctor sent me for one and I didn't think to question it, I just went. With hindsight I don't think I needed a dating scan as I knew it was six weeks, and the scan said 5 weeks 6 days! I'm regular as clockwork when it comes to periods and ovulating. Plus I don't remember having a scan this early last time.
Anyway... went for the scan, and the technician found a sac but couldn't find the embryo. That doesn't worry me. It might just be too small to be found yet. What worries me is that he looked and looked and looked and tried different angles, looked some more, and got a second technician in as well for another look. We were there for ages. And I remember thinking - ooo - feels nice and warm on my tummy.
Only now (thanks google!) am I starting to worry about the *possible* damage that all that longer-than-usual scanning might have done.
Am I worrying unnecessarily?
This thread (haven't read it all) freeks me out:
