@farmgirl2106: What you are feeling is totally normal! I was the same way & still am! I will be 14 weeks this Friday & my next doctor appointment isn’t until March 21st! Relax, I’m sure everything will be fine!

Best wishes & congrats!

What you’re feeling is normal.  I got a little upset a couple days before my first ultrasound because I didn’t ‘feel’ pregnant anymore, meaning I felt energetic and not naseous.  Apparently I can take something positive and turn it negative.  But all was fine and baby was happy, if you’re 12 weeks along you may even get lucky and not just see a heartbeat but a little dancing baby.  Have fun and try not to stress too much beforehand.

I know exactly how you feel…I am just jealous that your 12 week is so soon. I was going to have my first prenatal this Friday (just meeting with a nurse) and my first physical at 11 weeks (a little over 2 weeks) but I just switched doctors so now my physical got pushed back to 12 weeks, 4 weeks from today.

I am constantly paranoid and double checking symptoms and checking my temperature and a lot of other stuff…I have this bizarre fear that I’m going to show up at the doctor and like, there never was a baby.

I think I am freaked out after watching the miscarriage scene in Marley and Me, where Jennifer Aniston finds out she miscarried yet had no symptoms. I always thought you would know right away if that happened to you. I think it is fairly uncommon though. Anyways, just two more days until reassurance comes! I am sure everything is fine. Good luck!

I could have written this myself!  Our first appointment (I will be 8.5 weeks) is a week from today and I am already freaking out.  I just want to see that first ultrasound and a little heartbeat and know that everything is ok.  I have really irrational thoughts like “what if they look inside and it’s a kitten or something?”  You know, because that happens.  Totally paranoid! 

Good luck to you, I’m sure it’s all fine and you are going to feel so great after the appointment!

I’m 17 weeks and freak out between every doctor’s visit and I have them almost every two weeks (high risk). Don’t worry. You’re still having symptoms. Thursday will be here soon.

I hope you are feeling better and I felt the same way as well.  I kept having this horrible thought that when they checked everything that the baby would be in my fallopian tube or something….but thankfully I went today and he/she is right where it should be….good luck and don’t stress too much you will be ok 🙂
