When do you

When do you finally relax about your pregnancy? Currently I'm a little over 8 wks and am still terrified of having another m/c. I've had 2 us done so far at 6wks 1 day & 8wks and saw a little heartbeat. But my OB told me not to share the news with everyone until I'm in my second trimester. At 42 he told me my risk of m/c was between 30-40%, and that risk has decreased after the us, but it still sounds like I'm at risk. I had a previous m/c in Sept. at 10 wks, but never had an us to confirm fetal viability with that pregnancy. I think I will request another us at 10 wks or have another case of the dreaded "spots" (he he). I also feel terrible about resorting to this. I almost feel like I've been told I probably will m/c and we won't check on you until it happens or at your 12wk visit. Just venting to other AMA moms

Hi Karen,


I honestly didn't relax with my first pregnancy (I was 39 -- 40 when I delivered) until after I got my amnio results back.

Thanks Dina,
I guess I don't want spend all my time worrying about what if and just enjoy where I am. I do feel that if something does happen that its just not meant to be. Maybe I just need to keep reminding myself of that.

I'm not sure there is ever a time that is "worry/stress free."
