Managing stress? Help!!

So I'm 5.3 weeks pregnant. And I'm feeling awful. I don't know if I've caught a bug or it pregnancy stuff. I had a iffy tummy on sunday & monday. Last night my upper stomach was hurting I was awake all night with it & i felt like you do after you've had a bug, generally ughhhh & drained. My head is constantly banging & I'm getting my self so worked up that something is wrong with the pregnancy. My work sent me home today as they think I'm getting myself stressed & need a rest. I just dont know what to do with myself. I've still got 12 days until my 1st scan 😢😢😢.

Hi Becky179. Oh dear! Sorry to hear this. It does sound like a bug/virus, bit early for morning sickness, although that can kick in whenever. Try and have a rest when you can and drink plenty. Safe to take some paracetamol if it helps, but no anti inflammatories such as ibuprofen. Not long til your scan, so that will reassure you. Hope you soon feel better. Diane

Oh bless you! I think these first weeks are a worry, but as I said, look forward to your first scan when you meet your precious little “bean”. Not long now. Thinking of you. Diane
