Feeling scared!

Well I'm 8 wks on Monday and I've my 8 wks scan on that day 2. I'm so scared been crying for past two days feeling so glum. I've no symptoms no more which is sending my head into over drive. The last time I had my 8 wks scan there was no heartbeat which broke us. I'm not sure we could handle another loss. I really want this so much and I'm trying to stay postive it's just so bloody hard.

Yeah I know Bumpwanted I feel it's mainly coz I've no symptoms. I'm having accupuncture and I know it can suppress them it's just so hard to remain postive. I've been very lucky to get this far considering what's happend lately with this cycle. I just hope I remain lucky.😊 xx thanks hun x

When was your last scan? Also what symptoms were you getting before? Sounds ridiculous to say but try to just relax. Take care xx

My scan was last Sunday. I've had sickness, sore boobs, smells got to me and toilet visits constantly but now nothing. My boobs are hurting now but it's only just come on not sure if it's coz I've had my bra on all day. Ppl say you can't have symptoms every day it would send pregnant ppl crazy. I just think after all I've been through I want something to hold onto to and give me that hope. X

Try not to worry too much hun, if you look at my other posts from at the beginning of my pregnancy I have a bit of a meltdown when I lose my symptoms at 8 weeks, everything just seemed to taper off and one Morning boobs were veiny and sore next day nothing I was literally peeing on a stick 2-3 times a day!! I've got hundreds in the kitchen that I was stashing away from my husband and he went mad when he found them all. Lol

I can understand your worry. Especially when you've worked so bloody hard and so long for it.

We had a Mc at 8 weeks and it's dreadful. It's a grueling wait for that first scan at 12 weeks. At least you've got an in between one At 8 weeks. 😊At 10 weeks we had a dizzy midwife who offered to listen in with Doppler, couldn't find the heartbeat which freaked us right out. 😞 I was so scared I didn't even tell DH and just secretly fretted away 2 weeks as we couldn't afford a private scan. Turns out we had anterior placenta so she would have had no chance finding it.

I had a big bleed at work the day before our viability scan and I had mentally prepared myself for them to tell us it was game over again, but even though I didn't really have any symptoms and we had that big bleed he was there with arms and legs flying all over the shop.

We promised ourself we would relax at the scan which in the end was 13+3 but then we had a scare with him at 22 weeks and now until he's nestled in my arms I won't properly take that deep breath and enjoy it.

When we want something so bad And have worked so hard for it especially when we've had it snatched away from us, it's normal to feel that were going to lose it. We just sometimes have to take a leap of faith ❤️❤️️🍀🍀🙏🙏

I'm praying it goes well for you.

❤️❤️❤️❤️

😘

Thank you so much misswinky34 it sure is a roller coaster ride and not a good one. I 2 keep testing every other day just to make sure. I'm sure I will be ok it's just like you say we've been though so much and want it so bad head goes into over drive. My hubby is so postive even after all we've been through I'm grateful for that God knows how I'd cope if he felt the same as me. Lol

Your words have made me feel abit more relaxed so thanks again.😘 xx
