First Ultrasound on Thursday and soooooo nervous

I just needed to come vent....I have my first ultrasound on Thursday, and I am very very nervous. Im afriad I will go in and there will not be a heartbeat, or the baby will not be growing like it should. BTW I will be 10 weeks on Thursday. I had my first OB appointment last Thursday, which went well as far as I know. The last time I was in the Radiology room was with a friend who found out her baby was not growing. Has anyone been as nervous as I am with their first ultrasound? How did things turn out?

MEEEE!!! I'm terrified every time (unless I've been feeling a lot of movement) and I never go alone.

I can totally understand where you are coming from. We had our first ultrasound during week 7, and I went from being very excited to terrified and bracing myself for the worst even though I really had no idea how it would go. Thankfully we saw a heartbeat and the baby looked good.

Good luck to you! I hope all goes well on Thursday and you get to see your amazing little baby wiggling around!

That was a big fear of mine after the recent miscarriage, that I would have an empty sac or a baby and no hb. I had my first appt today and everything went great which is such a relief. Than you hear experiences such as Aimee above and I couldnt even imagine how that must feel especially so far along and thinking you are in the clear.

That is awesome! I guess we will know on Thursday if my due date stays the same or changes. Have you had an ultrasound yet or have you heard your
