Hi ladies hope you dont mind me joining in.
Hoping you can make feel like a stress head.
Im about 7 weeks pregnant and just had my first GP visit. Doctor was very nice but Im now back at home teary eyed and not sure why.
Ive just booked an Ultrasound for Monday. Wondering if Im subconsiously stressing about my MC in July.
Ive got other children so not sure why Im like this. Gp did my bp and it was a little raised due to me stressing. So now panicking about this too.
Also Im in a rural town with small hospital when Ive only ever been to high risk ob in big teaching hospital. So thats at the back of my mind.
Will I feel better after the dating scan? Is this normal to be upset and a little stressed?
Ive got no family in Australia, and so no support.
Thought Id be jumping for joy but Im not.

congrats! yeah completely normal and, yes in my experience, the stress/worry of it does calm down over time. there still can be a little uncertainty. i found i got a bit depressed in the 1st trimester worrying subconsciously worrying about having to emotionally go through another m/c. but this has passed.
I hope that the next few weeks are calm for you. I guess i consoled myself early on with the fact that things are more likely to work out than not. you're very welcome to discuss and vent whatever you are feelign here.

Hi jewelzy, it will get easier as the days pass. Try and do something relaxing and think about those milestones you want to meet. The 12 week scan is the big. We're here for you if you need support.
AFM. 32 weeks today! The movement Is really great, all is really good with me, just want this pregnancy to continue to a wonderful easy birth! Did the antenatal class on saturday so me and DH are a little more prepared.!

Good morning ladies!!
Tasha- glad thr nuchal scan went well!!
Jewelzy- you're not crazy for stressing!! Once you've had a scan it does make it a bit easier but I found until I felt proper movement I was always worried about something! I still am and I only have 2 weeks til my due date!!
Em- hope you and little miss are settling in to life together well and she is going well for you!!
Lucky- 32 weeks!! That's amazing! How good is all the movement!! It's one part I will really miss!!
Big hi's to all the other ladies!!!!
Afm well 38 weeks tomorrow, so just waiting! Bub is locked in and at least 2cm lower than he was last week so that's positive!! Been having some prelabour signs so just hoping he makes an early/on time arrival before Xmas!!!!

Welcome Jewlez!! Its only natural to stress.... Fingers crossed u get to see a strong healthy heartbeat at ur scan! I broke my 1st trimester up into making it to an appointment or milestone each couple of weeks... Made it seem faster and easier to handle than thinking "OMG Ive got 6wks to go till im in the **Safe** area." Im 24wks today, feeling movement each day, and still worry!! I think its only natural after uve experienced a loss....
Lucky - Glad u found ur antenatal class helpful! WOW 32 weeks! the time is going now
Hi sniper!! Em, Tasha, and everyone ive forgotten...sorry
OMG OMG OMG u must be getting so excited now super!! 2 weeks till EDD..lets hope ur little man arrives before Xmas, that would be the perfect early present! Good luck!!
AFM - I had my GP appointment this morning... Bubs is fine, urine is fine, got a script for my Anti D in a few weeks, no swelling etc, have lost another 1kg (doc isnt concerned)... BUT my BP is up. 3wks ago it was a perfect 120/70. Today it was 140/100. He wants to see me Monday to make sure it drops, if not he'll be putting me on Medication, and might even rule out a natural birth!
I have a MW appointment tomorrow, so ill get them to check it. Hopefully it will have dropped. Have had a rough couple of days so i can understand that its up.
But other than that, I feel great. DP got to feel bubs kick last night for the first time too

Shadow- yup I want this man home for Xmas!! Am doing anything I can to get him out (even if it just serves as a distraction for me!!) I even managed to dtd with dp last night so will even keep trying that! Hehe but yes I would love him to arrive at any time!!!
So glad to hear your appointment went well- hopefully the BP is down and you were just having a 'moment'!!!!!
38weeks today!!! So pumped! Little man is still a wriggler though a definite change in his movements has been detected!!! Hopefully he comes today.. I'm feeling brave!! Haha

awww good luck!! lol Ill get DP to squeeze my lil man out i think Hope he comes soon.
As for the BP, I think i know why its up. Been a stressful week. DP almost burnt down mums shop monday...lol Forgot to put the melt switch on when filling fryers with oil...the elements sparked and ignited.. Good thing he used the extinguisher. No damage done - he thought very fast. Just a really huge mess of the powder mixed through oil - both melted and solid to clean up
Anyway, think ill go locate the xmas decorations and get someone to round them up so I can gather some friends and get them to decorate everywhere today. Ill just provide drinks and snacks GRRR i hate this!

Just dropping in with an update after my appointment today.
My BP is PERFECT! 120/70. Midwife checked it today. She wondered if the GP used the wrong size cuff as it will give incorrect readings.
She sent mixed messages about my weight (Im overweight)...so i got lectured on the dangers/risks, and told our hospital likes only low-risk women and my weight puts me high so shes not happy for me to birth here (but thats ok) My plan isnt to birth here but to only use it for Ante/Post natal care...which i explained to her anyway. She said after the birth and we're stable they'll more than welcome me back-which is the plan!
She then looked at my pregnancy record book, and lectured me AGAIN! Because since my first weight reading at 8wks, ive lost 2kgs.....over 16wks!! (im now 24wks) I got told by now i SHOULD be gaining weight, and have been reffered to the dietitian. Tried to explain that since being pregnant i can NOT stand fatty or snack type foods..and that would be the difference but she still wasnt impressed!
So theres my day in a nutshell lol. Hate when these health professionals send u mixed messages
