As I sit at my desk on this Friday morning, I can't help but feel slightly nervous. I know it's probably silly & not worth it to feel this way but I can't help it. I'm nervous because I haven't "felt" pregnant the past few days. I don't feel like I look pregnant anymore. My "bump" keeps going up & down in size & for some reason, that worries me. All of these "what if" scenarios play through my mind. What if the baby stopped growing? What if the baby's heartbeat stopped? What if I had a miscarriage & didn't know it? I know, I know, I shouldn't be thinking about these things, but it's hard not to. This is the longest I have gone without seeing my doctor or my baby on that ultrasound machine (4 weeks) & I think that has been what is causing my worries & anxiety. Tuesday can't come quick enough.
All of these things I keep hearing about the NT scan & 1st trimester screening is what's causing my confusion. I'm on The Bump everyday & see all these posts about women who are getting the NT scan or screening & I have no idea if I'm supposed to get this done too!? I know the NT scan is not necessary, but I would like some peice of mind. I'm just confused. Did any of you have these things done? Or are you going to?
