I’m pretty close to the day where you are and I’m in the same boat. I’ll be 5 w 5 d on Christmas and we’re telling my in-laws then. Nothing we can do but take care of our bodies and take it one day at a time (and get off Goggle!). Chances are all is well, but until my doctor confirms that all is well on Jan 10, I’m going to be worried. Hang in there!

Very cool! I’ve loved timing it the way we both have. I had a great first year of marriage with just us (and the puppy we got in May), and now feel ready for baby in August.

@KS240030:  Ugh. I HATE the first trimester! I freaked out the WHOLE TIME because I was CONVINCED that I was going to have a MMC. No reason why, just convinced!

Now I’m 33 weeks with the healthiest baby ever to live! So don’t worry!

I think a lot of women experience the same anxiety, it’s totally normal. You will feel so much better in a few months when you can feel your LO kicking and moving. I wish you an easy, comfortable, and happy pregnancy!

@KS240030:  I had this too, really really bad anxiety until I was 6w 2d and we saw the baby on the ultrasound. I was literally hysterical all the way to the scan because I was convinced I’d had a miscarriage/ there’d be nothing there. Definitely stay away from google, it is not your friend. However, I am now 9w 1d and everything looks good in there! I’ve had 2 scans so far, both showing everything is progressing nicely so silly me for worrying so much. Not that I could help it at the time though!

I think it’s normal to worry, but you really have to know that the chances that baby is just fine is MUCH higher than the chance that something is wrong! Just enjoy this, and you will get your first US soon enough! And then, right before your next one you will start to worry all over again, and the enxt and the next. Just try to stay calm and keep reminding yourself that everything is most likely just fine!

@KS240030:  Going through the same thing at 5w. It’s just very overwhelming!

I had this throughout both my pregnancies. Now at 7 months I’m worried somethings wrong with him..he’s deformed or something.

I think it’s very normal.

Google is NOT your friend. I have actually stayed off Google my entire pregnancy. I most definitely am the type to worry for no reason so I don’t need any additional help. I will say worrying is not healthy. It causes unneeded stress on the body and baby. Take it one day at a time and don’t “worry” your pregnancy away. Enjoy it. :o)

I am 10 weeks today and I am STILL nervous about telling our families we are pregnant! I hadn’t been sick at all until last night and I we already saw the heart beat and everything but it still doesn’t feel REAL and I feel like something could go wrong at any moment….

I keep asking DH, “We’re really pregnant, right?” And he confirms it, lol. 

I have googled SO many things! Risk of downsyndrom, risk of Autism, risk of it being born with both sex organs! YOU NAME IT!!! I am a paranoid mama!!!!

Pregnancy is scared with worry, we had problems during the pregnancy and I was paralzed with fear. My favority quote is “Worry pretends to be important” Put it somewhere important, because unfortunately you have very little control over whats growing in your belly!

This is completely normal. I would always get the most anxiety about loosing the baby when I was telling someone about it or about to tell someone about it. I am a teacher and the night before I had planned to tell my students, I had nightmares of loosing the baby and having to tell them. It was terrible and took me another couple of weeks to build up enough courage to tell them.
