    Default Freaking out!

    So i had my NT scan last week and the lady said everything looked good and low risk for down syndrome.

    However, the doctor called me to make an appointment as she needed to discuss my results. i went in this morning to be told there the placenta looks bulky and possibly air sacks and to follow up in a few weeks.

    the doctor said that the follow scan is to ensure that the placenta is not detaching. She told me not to lift anything, including my 2yr old son and to rest as much as possible. and if i get any pain or bleeding to go straight back to see her for an urgent scan.

    I have so much stress going on in my life right now. My hubby has left me. and i want this baby so badly... everything I google sounds like bad news. I will never forgive myself or my hubby if anything happens.

    Any advice? Please? I'm really stressing out!!! How do I get through the next 2 weeks waiting for my follow up scan??!!?? :-(

    Hugs! I'm sorry you're going through a rough time and also have the added worry for another 2 weeks.
    Perhaps some meditation might help? I'm not big on it in my own life, but when I had a rough patch in my pregnancy (stemming from my 12 week scan also) I found it helped until I received results
    Is it possible to move in with other relatives for a few weeks as additional help?
    Best luck, rest up and look after yourself!
