Am I overreacting???

I thought that this being my 4th pregnancy, I wouldn't have all the same worries as I did with the previous ones...but, I'm starting to feel like being experienced may just make me more stressed!!!

If it were me, I think I would call my doctor, if only just to ease my fears. You are not alone with feeling like WTH am I so stressed about being a BTDT! This is my 3rd pregnancy, and I have to say I am more nervous than ever about miscarriage and the birth. It's really weird.

I think the odds are with you that things are fine. If you do decide to call your doc, KUP!

I think we are about a week apart, but we should be buddies!

This is #4 for me, and I am having the same worries... and this is where it gets really crazy... #3 for me had a "vanishing twin" too.

I would not feel bad about wanting to meet the doctors.

well i am on # 4 too!! ( well i lost #1 & #3 in m/c but i guess technically i am on #6) anyway - i am FREAKING out. I swear i get worse EVERY time. oh my! i had a dating u/s last week at 6 wks 1 day. heartbeat was good. but i measured 3 days behind my date which freaked me out. so then i had brown spotting over the weekend - called OB yesterday am and after getting LOTS of attitude from very NOT nice nurse- i am going for a u/s today. I don't get why they care ?? they aren't paying for it- seriously ! it took her 5 min or less to talk to dr and do paperwork. anyway - problem is my naseau is not nearly as bad as i would expect at this point. it worries me b/c that is exactly what happened when i lost my last one - had heartbeat at 8 wks - went in at 11.5 and nothing :( so needless to say i am very nervous- esp. when it comes to interpreting ms signs!!!
