So when I called the doctor yesterday and told him about my last period and mentioned how light and strange and it and how it only lasted for a couple of days he seemed to think that he should date me from my period in November - making me 6-7 weeks.
I don't think I am that far along though, because since then and now I have tested (not with fmu, but still I reckon if I were that far along it would have shower regardless) and have tested negative. Obviously I need to wait till my first antenatal appointment anyway to know more.
I'm thinking about booking an early scan though, for when (I think) I would be around 8 weeks. Just for piece of mind. Everything goes very slowly here with the NHS and so I know I'll be waiting at least another month just to here when me appointment is, then even longer for the actual appointment so a scan in between then is sounding pretty attractive.
I've still to run it by DF, but I don't see him having a problem with it. The scan costs £100 though. Which is a lot of money considering I only work part time. But you pay a £39 deposit, then the rest at the appointment so that breaks it up a little.
What do you ladies think? Is it a waste of money and should I just wait for the 12 week? Or should I go ahead and have it done? Seems worth it for my sanity - especially after the chemical last year I am a little anxious. I know it's still early, and not everyone gets symptoms but the fact I'm not getting any obvious ones isn't helping with my worrying!
