I am getting SO nervous about Wednesday

My first appointment and ultrasound is on Wednesday. I am getting so nervous about it. I am really afraid they are going to tell me something awful, like it's ectopic, or there's no heartbeat or anything else drastic.

I have NO reason to suspect any of this. It's only that I have had three previous healthy pregnancies, with NO complications and never a loss in between. I feel like I am really tempting fate here hoping for a fourth one.

Here's the thing..

USUALLY, if there's something wrong, you will know. You will bleed, cramp, have pain, etc. The problem with these boards is that you have a huge population of women preggo, so we screw up statistics. I mean, we already have THREE mamas with twins in October, one of which is on her THIRD set! It is not super common to hold on to a blighted pregnancy. YES it happens, but it just seems more impending on these boards, because we have been STALKING those pee sticks, and eachother. Together, we share our loss stories, but often, it's the losses that lead us to these boards. Your bean is most likely safe and sound, and just snuggled in for the long haul. I hope you have a great appointment.

Re: I am getting SO nervous about Wednesday

I know what you mean- my appt isn't for 2 more weeks, but I'm totally stressing out too.
I think you can put the ectopic fear out of your head though. My OB said you generally can't go long without getting some intense pain and'd already know if that were the case, kwim?

I also have to agree with Kim. In the my first pregnancy, I didn't do anything online, and I really had no idea just how many things could go wrong. And I agree that we get a skewed sense of risk this way. In my opinion it's worth the support you gain, but if you've had 3 healthy pregnancies, there's no reason why you're "tempting fate" with this one. Stressing is so normal though- so I hope the appointment brings you a sense of relief

Kim, mine is Wednesday too. I'll be thinking of you. Right now, I'm not too nervous. I mean, I DO have a history of losses, but, neither of my losses made it to 9 weeks (which I'll be at the appt) so that gives me a bit of hope. I will be nervous and probably not breath much until I see that little one and hear a heart beat, but until that day, I'm just trying to think about other stuff and not stress about it. All the stress in the world won't change a thing. It'll just make you sleep less, and more sick to your stomach with nerves. I hope you can keep the stress at bay and I pray we will both post beautiful u/s pics next Wednesday!

Re: I am getting SO nervous about Wednesday

I went for my first ultrasound a week ago today and I was so scared the whole ride there that something would be wrong... my DH says I am such a worrier lol... But trust me as soon as you see the little heart beating all your worries will go straight out the door... mine did (well at least for a little while... now I just worry how I am going to afford all these cute diapers I keeps seeing on my little tiny budget... hehehe)
