My girlfriend is pregnant with our first baby, and we agreed not to tell anyone who knows us (friends or family) until we got to the 12 week scan and was told everything was fine. However, I am a worrier by nature so we decided to pay to have a reassurance scan carried out and when we had it done we were told my girlfriend was 9 weeks and 5 days pregnant at the time.
At the scan we were able to see details such as the babies head, arms and legs but most importantly we could see the babies heartbeat.
I know this is possibly a morbid thought but what are the chances of something going wrong from this point onwards? I have read that once you have seen the babies heartbeat the chances of anything bad happening drop dramatically.
