Feeling so Anxious!

Hi Everyone.

This is my first pregnancy and I am 9 weeks and 1 day today.

I just wondered if anyone else was experiencing overwhelming anxiety? I am not a naturally anxious person, I

am usually happy go lucky, however, I find that, for no reason, I suddenly am terribly anxious. Its the kind of feeling you

may have when you have lost a valuable item and just cant find it... but there is just no reason.

I am at 5 weeks and three days and I am terribly anxious too! I previously miscarried at this time in December so I keep thinking if I can just make it past this week I can relax. It is great that you are at 9 weeks+, I have read that every day your pregnancy progresses the chance of something bad happening decreases!
If you can't push these anxious feelings down you may want to find someone to talk to...good luck!
