Awwww Danielle, i wish you luck with your scan. I also dislike needles with a passion, but now what with having anapahylactic shocks frequently, i have to inject myslef with adrenaline to save my life. So i look at it that way, these injections no matter how nasty they really are, may save us in one way or another.
I am surprised that no-one has offered you more support. I have been lucky that i saw my gynae consultant before trying for another baby. Im also lucky that my husband is in the army so we have a medical centre on camp that has a midwife there. If i were you, i would go to your gp and ask for assistance, these days you bneed to push for what you want and be more assertive. Ask also at your scan about baby aspirin and the vitamin study. I have the info here about the vitamins, if you would the info too please let me know :).
I also think i may be having more than one child again, as my husband is a twin, my son Joshua was a twin and my mother also was a twin. So it certainly runs both ways. I feel very much fatter already :) so you never know. I have my 1st midwife app on monday so i have already typed out all of my medical history (esp with my last pregnancy) so i do not forget anything. I know what i am like when i get into a medical office, i forget soooo much :).
Anyway Chin up Danielle, rememebr try not to get toooo nervous, i am here for you, we are in the same boat, we can get thro this :)
By the way where abouts are you from?
