(Closed) I'm not the first and I know I won't be the last…

Take a deep breath!  I know what you mean; I have been a nervous wreck at every single test so far, and I’m now at 39 weeks +2 days and so far everything has been fine.  I was really sick throughout the pregnancy (still throwing up every day, wheee) so if I was having a worse day, I was worried baby wasn’t getting enough, and if I had a better day, I was convinced something must have gone horribly awry.

DH keeps reminding me, worrying doesn’t change reality.  Try to enjoy each day for what it is, take a deep breath, and just relax!  Maybe there is something to “mother’s intuition” but there is also something called “too much worrying” and just because you think something is wrong, does NOT mean it’s so.  Good luck!

I didn’t realize I’d been stressing.  But the tech checked my ovaries, cervix and then went over to the baby and I exclaimed “There really is a baby in there!”   Everyone laughed.  I guess I wasn’t letting myself believe it was real.  I was weirdly worried about molar pregnancy, for some unknown reason.  

Also my ‘mothers intuition’ is broken and I hope it fixes itself before he’s too old.  I was CONVINCED he was a girl.  Nope.  All boy.  He’s made sure to show us multiple times on ultrasounds, just in case. 

I had a horrible habit of worrying about things not happening about a week before they started to happen.  Like around 6 weeks I was asking DH “shouldn’t I be sick by now?  I think I should be sick by now.”  And since week 7 the nausea has been my constant tagalong, I’m 25 weeks tomorrow and still taking diclectin.  Then I was complaining about not having a bump, and so on and so forth.

I have my 8 week u/s in a week and I am a wreck! It is so unreal, and I haven’t been sick or anything so it feels like nothing is in there.

MrsFarmWife:  Totally normal and understandable. Just remember, the odds really are in your favor that everything is okay. I did have an early MC my first pregnancy, so I was super nervous and almost sick when we went in at 8 weeks with this pregnancy. Baby was perfectly fine. I don’t think the nerves will go away, but just remember, you are doing everything right (I’m assuming) and have no control. I am sure baby is just fine in there. Don’t beat yourself up over worrying. I hear it comes with the territory!

I just had an ultrasound at 11w5d after a great u/s at 8w4d and I was still freaking out that it would be bad news. But it went great, everything is fine, I totally get it though. Hopefully all is well!!

MrsFarmWife:  Yes, I’ve been so scared I was in tears at an ultrasound. Baby was thriving. And I was completely laid back and joking around and it was horrible news. I have zero intuition.

Keep in mind, if you have symptoms, it’s a good thing. They don’t have to be strong. It’s also perfectly natural to worry
