If she’s that worried about things (i.e. freaking out every day), it might be worthwile for her to fork out the money for an early ultrasound.  You can usually get a quick ultrasound for under $100, and if there’s a baby fair in your area, even less.  I know there’s some controversy about getting unnecessary ultrasounds, and I don’t know about her $$ situation, but it sounds like she might go crazy if she has to wait for her 20wk ultrasound!  Good news is she should be feeling movement in the next couple weeks, so that will help as well.

She really sounds like she should be speaking with a doctor if she’s analyzing things like this. Friends are great suppport systems, but they won’t *really* ease your mind if things have gotten this stressful. If it were my friend, I’d encourage her to book an appointment with her doctor to discuss her fears and offer to go with her. I’d just sit in on the appointment and be supportive, then I’d take her out for a nice lunch and have a relaxing chat and meal. Sometimes just knowing someone is there to lean on when you feel like going mental is the best thing.
