Hi everyone!! We had our 12 week scan yesterday, just amazing!! Little one was waving at us 👋🏻 and wouldn't stop wriggling for ages to take measurements. My partner mentioned afterwards that I didn't seem to be that overly happy which surprised me. Obviously I'm very happy and greatful for this little miracle after 6 years of trying, but I realised that I was keeping back some of my feelings as a sort of defence in case something bad happens and this is what he had picked up on. I'm a practical person and a worrier in general, so after all we have been through I really don't know how to just 'relax and enjoy the pregnancy' as everyone keeps telling me too. It's always something in the back of my mind, I just hope so much that this baby will be ok and I'm just looking forward to the day when he/she is in my arms. Don't get me wrong the worrying isn't all consuming, but I'm aware it's there niggling away. Does anyone else feel like this or have you learnt to 'relax' a bit? Xx
