    Default Anxiety

    I'm not even pregnant again yet and I'm feeling so anxious about the what ifs. I know I'm not meant to think of what ifs but I don't know how to stop :-(

    Even when they're not racing through my mind I feel really anxious about getting pregnant again and I guess also about approaching the due date.

    Anyone got any suggestions to help reduce anxiety in this situation? Do you actually enjoy your pregnancy after loss? I'm so scared it will happen again :-(

    In 16 weeks pregnant after three m/cs (4 angel babies) and I have to say I was a nervous wreck. Thankfully my specialist was understanding and ordered ultrasounds at 6 weeks and 9 weeks and my OB has ultrasound in her rooms, so I get to see a heartbeat each time I go. The way I coped was to tell no one and pretend it didn't exist. We only told family after 12 weeks and will tell friends on Saturday. After each ultrasound I would be good for about two days, then convince myself that bubs had passed away (all my m/cs were missed m/cs). Ive never been more thankful to feel morning sickness and became horribly paranoid on days i didnt feel sick. Now i can feel bubs move its much better, but sometimes i cant for days and that really gets to me. Everyone keeps telling me ill live to regret wanting to feel movement as soon as I start getting kicked, but hey, I was happy to puke. Overall I've got to say it really wasn't a pleasant time. I hope you get your sticky BFP soon and cope better than me

    Thanks for the reply mousky!

    Congrats on bubs and hugs for your losses.

    Mine too was a missed m/c. We found out on a Tuesday.... And even up until the Sunday before the scan I had still been throwing up. Bubs had passed 10 days earlier at almost 14 weeks. So I know that morning sickness for me will not necessarily be a good sign iykwim. :-(

    I guess only time will tell.

    Spidey... It's hard!!! I've had two mc and one missed mc. (we've chatted a few times I think!!) and I'm constantly a nervous wreck. I almost 22 weeks now and had scans at 6, 9 and 12 and 20. I was nervous before each one. I still enjoying some parts like the kicks. But this time we have a cheapie Doppler. I'm not obsessed by it but I like to listen for 30 seconds every few days. We also had a heart prob detected at 20 week scan but otherwise all good. Hence Doppler!!
    Early in my pregnancy I listened to meditation and relaxation/deep breathing things at night when I couldn't sleep etc. these really helped. I wish I could say it was and is easy but I'm still nervous. But also trying to enjoy the good stuff. I can't wait til my little girl is here. (I have to say the growing belly etc certainly alleviates some of the anxiety!!!)
