So I'm not sure what I hope to achieve with this post. I think I'm just in some dire need of good vibes/energy at this point in my pregnancy.
I have been really good up until this point. After a missed miscarriage earlier this year, it's been hard being positive but I've done a really good job of it so far. I've been as relaxed as I can be. Didn't have my first scan until I was 9 weeks where we saw a gorgeous little bub measuring spot on. Only had bloods done once just to confirm that I was indeed pregnant. Even went overseas which I was nervous about being on a plane for 15 hours straight but I did it and all was fine. I've been super sick from 5 weeks but am now on Zofran which has been an ENORMOUS relief!
So nothing is wrong. In fact everything is going perfectly but as we get to the 12 week scan mark I find myself getting super nervous. What if there's something wrong with my bubba and God forbid we have to make that awful decision to terminate? I'm terrified of something being wrong even thought there's no reason for it. I haven't even booked the scan in yet because I'm afraid.
Anyway, I just wanted to get that off my chest. Any lovely vibes sent my way would be so greatly appreciated.

Hi FTM I know how you feel I went into panic mode this week and got my ob to do a scan & everything is ok. I forget when your 12 week mark is it must be coming up soon? Mine is in just over a week. It makes me nervous too but if we stick together for support we will get each other across the line sending you lots of hugs and lets hope our 12 weeks come around soon x

Re: Just need some good vibes/energy my way
I know just how you feel, last time I didn't have a scan booked in before the 12 week scan, and ended up having a mc at 10 weeks, so this time when I saw my gp I insisted on both a dating scan and 2 quantitative hcg blood tests, just to make sure everything was going right...
Unfortunately I'm still super nervous that something will go wrong, especially because I'm only 8 weeks now, and 10 weeks is going to be a terrible nerve wracking week!
Anyway, lots of positive sticky vibes heading your way! :thumbup:

You can do this Hun!! Be positive, it's normal to be nervous. You have been so strong and positive up until now so I know you will be fine.
Lots of positive vibes coming your way.

Advice from other pregnant women informs me that most everyone gets nervous about the health of their growing bub. I think for us that have had loses that worry is exaggerated to an even greater level. I went for an 8 week scan and suddenly burst into tears. It took me totally by surprise. I had a 10, 12 a d 18 week scans and I was anxious for all of them.
It is hard, there is no denying it. I tried to focus on the successes of my pregnancy - no indications of any problems. I had to remind myself all the time. All the worry in the world wil not change the outcome but it can change the joy in the experience of growing a little baby. I had a scan at 31 weeks and loved, loved, loved it! It was total joy to see my little baby wiggling and growing. It was a beautiful experience!
I wish I could tell you the worry stops but for me it hasn't totally. It sure eases off when you feel you little baby moving around, doesn't totally go though. Even today I thought baby had been a little quiet so gave my tummy a poke in the hopes of waking baby up and getting a wiggle in response. and I reminded myself that all has been perfect with this pregnancy and no reason to fear.
Try to enjoy and focus on the success of this pregnancy! There are successfully pregnancies! Just look around and you see them all around you. One other thing that helped me cope with fear was looking for positive stories rather than researching all possible problems. I stayed away from forums and threads that increased my fear/anxiety.
