    Default **warning, new pregnancy mentioned** NT scan tomorrow, what if it happens again?

    We lost our last bub in August due to a severe skull and brain abnormality, and it was the 12 week scan that everything went wrong.
    I remember not being told anything at the scan so walked out thinking all was fine, then I got a call from my OBs office to come straight in. The few weeks after that were horrible and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
    I am now 12 weeks with a new pregnancy and have my NT scan tomorrow... I am so scared something will go wrong. I started posting in bubhub in the earlier weeks but found it too hard as I just couldn't accept I was pregnant. Even now I still can't think I will have a baby at the end of all this.
    I am not sure what the point of this thread is, just to put my fears out there I guess. I have 24 hours now and I dont know how to stop thinking about it. I have been so tense and have had a headache for days and I think it is from stress. I have 2 healthy, beautiful kiddies so I know it's possible, I just can't see past tomorrow. I just wish the next 24 hours were over.

    I had the same thing happen at my 12 week scan. I am now 27 weeks pregnant and sorry Hun it never goes away. Are you going to a foetal medicine unit or just a scan place? If you go to the proper unit they will understand how your feeling and they have the training to be able to go through everything. My son had a diaphragmatic hernia and heart problems so in this pregnancy they made sure they went through all the organs and told me they were formed correctly. Just try and remember that if it wasn't genetic the chances of it happening in most conditions is usually around 1 - 2%.

    Thank you all, it means a lot.

    I am going to a fetal medicine unit and they know our last bub had encepheolceal, so I should know on the spot if there are any issues. My OB assured me there has never been a case of a woman having 2 pregnancies with this condition so that gives me hope. It does make you a lot more aware of what can go wrong though, I was only ever worried about genetic disorders that I hadn't considered the other horrors out there. 22.5 hours to go, I have already scrubbed the bathroom, cleaned out the fridge and pantry and scrubbed the kitchen.

    I am also undecided if I should have someone with me, DF has to work as its his second day back and he was sick the end of last year, so lots to do. I am not annoyed, I get it but I don't know if I should take my friend up on the offer for her to come? On one hand it will be nice to have support should the worst happen, but I have never been able to express myself to others. I always hide what I feel and I don't know if I will need to be alone through it all. Ugh... I need to switch off my brain!

    Have someone there. When I was told it all looked fine I turned into a blubbering mess. The relief that flows over you is just intense so you will need someone there. Good luck. Hope the scan comes quickly for you so you can feel a bit better.

    Thank you, I think I will take my friend. I know the odds are in our favour but I wont feel any relief until we know for sure. I feel like any positive thinking will somehow jinx it all.
    Good luck with your pregnancy

    Hi!
    Will be thinking of you tomorrow, I'm sure it will all go well for you. Take your friend, it's always nice to have a 'hand holder' no matter the news. Like a pp, the relief you feel when they say it's all good is unbelievable.
    best of luck tomorrow!
