I recently (last week) found out that I am pregnant, possibly 7 weeks or so. I'm older than most (38) and this will be my first. To be honest I am a little bit freaked out! Myself and my partner have no idea what to expect with pregnancy and I've mostly had my head in the sand, as I've been quite career driven.
I've just had my first set of blood results, and will be having my first scan in approximately 3 weeks. We are super excited and have not yet shared our news other than with my employer. My job is super busy and stressful and I needed some leeway and understanding for scans and tests etc.
I'm struggling as my doctor hasn't really explained much . I think this scan is to screen for DS, but when I called to make the apt they said the date my doctor gave me was too early. I called my doctor back and he scoffed and said, have the scan, we can determine from it how far you are along and if you need to go back in a couple of weeks so be it.
I'm extremely naive with this! all the terminology is foreign to me, and since I've not told anyone yet, I've really no-one to talk to.
Sorry for the long post, any reassurance would be appreciated.
