This Friday I will be 8 weeks pregnant. I wont get to see or hear a heartbeat until next Friday but I am in worry mode 24/7. I keep thinking what if something is wrong or what if we dont find a heart beat. Any cramp I feel, I think I might miscarry. When I dont feel morning sickness, I think its because something is wrong. I know I should have a positive outlook but its so hard when I have not heard a heartbeat.
All this is driving me nuts and taking a toll on me. Do any of you newly pregnant bee’s feel this way or is it just me?

@Mrs.Jansen: I felt this way! My first appt with the OB was today, at 10w1d and finally got to hear the heartbeat so I know everything is good! I was so nervous though, and at first, it was hard finding the heartbeat because the baby was so small, she said she had to move my intestines around to get it lol. I am like okay. My Darling Husband and I were waiting about 3 mins, felt like an hour, to finally find it and I was a nervous wreck till we did!

I’m 28 weeks, and I STILL feel that way, LOL. I’m a worrier at heart, and until baby is in my arms, I don’t think I’ll stop worrying. Well, I’ll still be worrying, but it’ll be on a whole other scale!

I have two daughters and I dont remember feeling this much anxiety with them but I was also much much younger.
@Lovemyfuturehub: I am so happy you got to hear your babies heartbeat. 🙂 What an awesome feeling isn’t it?
@Shosha1: Yes, the worrying never ends. I have an 18 year old and an 11 year old. I worry every day more and more. 🙂 That is what being a mom is all about.

@Mrs.Jansen: Here, let’s put it in perspective for you: you were worried that you would not be able to conceive when you were trying. That was needless, since you got your bfp in the first month. All that worry was for nothing!
Try to relax. It’s not worth your energy to worry about everything.

@Mrs.Jansen: I’m in the same place as you. Any little ache or pain and I’m worried about miscarriage or that I’ll get to my appointment and there will be no heartbeat. I even tried to use the doppler at work (I work as an RN) but I was trying to hide and check so I didn’t hear anything. I’m 7 w 3 days today, and my appt isn’t until the 12th of November. I’m going to go crazy until then.
On a funnier note I was with my sister on monday at her gender anatomy scan and I was just standing there going “I wonder if I could ask them to just check me too, wouldn’t take too long would it?” lol My sister thought it was hilarious.

@Mrs.Jansen: We are due date twins and I totally understand! I’ll be 8w on Friday and thankfully have my ultrasound this Monday at 8w3d. It has seemed like an ETERNITY to get to this point without a scan/seeing the heartbeat. I am also a worry-wart by nature and overanalyze every little thing. I guess we just have to figure that we’ve made it this far, and what is a few more days? Good luck to you!

@Mrs.Jansen: I felt the exact same way during the first trimester. My worry eased a little bit after seeing my baby with a very strong heartbeat at 8 weeks, but it never went away completely.

I feel that way, I’ll be 8 weeks tomorrow. It did help me when I saw the heartbeat at 5w6d, however.
My biggest issue is that I’ve had off and on cramping since before I knew I was pregnant (and I found out crazy early, like 3w3d….thought I was 4w but dates were off). Everything I’ve read says that this is completely normal, but it still worries me.
My next appointment is Halloween, so not too much longer!

@Mrs.Jansen: Yep, 22 weeks, and worrying here. So much that I actually posted about it earlier today.
I worried with Dirty Delete the WHOLE pregnancy, the only part I didn’t worry during was labor! But remembering that it happens, doesn’t make it any easier…

I am glad I am not alone. I know that I should not worry and I try not to but I cant help it. I cant wait until next Friday. It seems like an eternity.

I definitely worried a lot. I felt it was too good to be true to be finally pregnant – so something was bound to happen. I worried after scan results, I worried at everything. Eventually, something clicked – I’m 13 weeks now & determined to relax, to make myself enjoy the fact that I’m finally pregnant. 🙂

@Mrs.Jansen: I worried about the same exact thing. I’m now 23w and STILL worried. Sigh….

I hate the worry 🙁 It is the hardest part. I just saw the heartbeat two times! Monday and then a detailed ultrasound (because I have a longer cycle, so OB wanted to find out age of baby- by size- for due dating purposes) on Tuesday and let me tell you. I still worry. I hate it. Then, there is the crazy dreams. They have been horrible! Then there is google and all the “OMG, should I not have eaten that!?” I am doing my best to stay distracted. I also feel sick all the time so my spirits sometimes just get down 🙁
