Kind of Freaking out
Thu, 03-22-2012 - 9:59am
Hi, I'm 5 weeks pregnant. This is my 3rd pregnancy. I had a missed miscarriage last August. Went in for my dating ultrasound at 8 weeks and baby had died a little after 6 weeks. Now I'm so scared that it's going to happen again. My 1st pregnancy was easy and uneventful, no nausea and minimal symptoms, my DS is 5 now. But now because I'm only having light breast soreness, some fatigue, and slight nausea, I'm so nervous that something is wrong. I go in for an u/s on 4/11 and it cannot come fast enough but I'm also so scared that it will be another missed m/c. I am trying to be positive and grateful for this blessing, but I'm finding it really hard to not worry and stress over every little thing. I just really hope and pray that these next few weeks pass and I get to see the wonderful heartbeat! Thanks, Sam

Welcome to the board and congratulations on your pregnancy Sam! I'm sorry you're so scared right now but totally understand why, we've all been there here and we'll be here for you at any time you feel like you can't do another day. I had a m/c at 7w 2d but have gone on to have a perfect healthy little boy who is 1 next week. Unfortunately, from experience, I can tell you that you will have many freak outs in this pg, sometimes brought on from nothin, but at the end of it, when you're holdin your beautiful baby, it'll all be worth it.

Congrats on your pregnancy. My first ever pregnancy ended in an ectopic so with this one, I was super nervous. Before each ultrasound I would almost panic thinking that something
