Thank you all so much for the replies! As much as I don’t like the thought of other people suffering through this sort of anxiety it is also nice to know I am not alone.
We had our scan yesterday and got our Harmony Test results and everything looks great so it really eased my anxiety. I have decided though that I will be going back to see my psychologist to talk to him about dealing with my anxiety again and have downloaded some meditation apps to try in the mornings before work.

Good luck! I was anxious about things early on and throughout for sure, but for me it got really bad near the end (until my doctor let me get induced just after 39 weeks), so I think it’s great that you are taking steps to get things under control early on! Glad to hear the scan and bloodwork look good!

Hugs, Bee! I’m glad everything is turning out well!
I had anxiety before I became pregnant and at first everything little pain and twitch freaked me out, and I didn’t have trouble getting pregnant. My OB/GYN kept me on my low dose anti anxiety medication because she said my stress would be more detrimental than the medication to the baby.
I also worked out throughout my pregnancy, which helped a ton. I also did a lot more yoga, something I didn’t do a lot of, and I found it very helpful.
Now that my daughter is a month old, I find myself worrying more! But I’m told that’s pretty normal and the sleep deprivation doesn’t help. My mom said as a parent you always wear your heart on your sleeve and I completely understand what she means.
Hang in there Bee! Seeing your psychologist should also help.

Glad to hear things are looking well so far. Besides seeing a psychologist, finding a good OB-GYN also does wonders for your peace of mind. My Dr. was very reassuring and has a very calming voice – I find that helps a lot!
I also do prenatal yoga. Helps me connect to my baby and keeps me calm. Happy mummy, happy baby!
Also, further along once your baby grows stronger you will notice a pattern to his or her movement. I find that so reassuring too. You might want to start counting kicks. Here’s the app I use! It’s free! https://www.countthekicks.org/how-to-count-kicks/
