Early EPU scan tomorrow (2nd August)

I'm so anxious about my early scan tomorrow . Last time I went in January it was a blighted ovum . We went in all excited but came out heartbroken and devastated . The morning sickness has well and truly kicked in now but for some reason it still doesn't make my anxiety any less . I have a feeling this will work out but I can not get past my fears of loss or another blighted ovum . I also have another hcg test tomorrow I wasn't feeling so good this morning and felt unwell .

Am I being over cautious about this pregnancy ? X

Hope you are all well at which ever point of journey you are at . Lots of love xx

Fear Romanula!

I think you can't be overexcited :) I'm just at the beginning but sometimes just can't concentrate on work or anything. I hold my fingers for you and hope you're gonna be fine!!!

It is probably hard not to think about past experiences, but should find a way to. Cause it's really exhausting ... My experience isn't similar, but years ago (and I do regret it like nothing else in my life!) I made an abortion. And now, being in the beginning of the journey, I just can't get rid of the thought that I might not succeed because of that sin. That I do not deserve. And I know that this is a killing thought. But sometimes just can't cope with it. It's like ghosts, right? I hope you find your way to deal with yours. xx

Thank you, dear. I know you've wrote your post to find some support. But then maybe you can share how do you deal with those thoughts? That it might fail? You know, I realized typing this message that I never talked to anyone about that. It's like I really feel guilty and ashamed... yes, at that time I thought it was the solution ...

I don't always deal with my thoughts in the best way . I tend to get into a big anxiety panic before anything bad happens but if it doesn't happen then I've had a panic attack and an anxiety attack for nothing. I suffer with depression and anxiety anyway . But over the 4 years of my journey I've found it made it worse at times . I'm learning that I am stronger than I thought I was though because I keep going. But I never thought this journey would be this journey if that makes sense x

Hello, I'm sure nothing will put your mind at ease until you see your little one on the screen tomorrow! However even if it helps a tiny bit I read that chanced of a 2nd blighted ovum are ridiculously rare so I'd say you're good to go! xxx

Hiya I just posted something similar. I've just over two weeks till my scan. I had blighted ovum last time. I sort of felt like my symptoms had gone. My OH was totally gutted not to see anything on the screen. I'm also constantly thinking the same will happen this time.

I really hope your scan goes well. Thinking of you xx
