How to deal with fear and worry ?? 7 weeks pregnant

Ladies ,

Can some one advice me ?? I am 7 weeks pregnant naturally by god grace after 6 months of trying and I am so grateful to god forever . But the fear is really killing me , I went private scanning for 7th week and all went well . But I was scared like anything , so shaky in the scanning room , very very tensed before days and that went well . That sonograper was so sweet and she told congrats with in few seconds as she knew how scared I was .. Now I am started to worry for 12 th week scan and to pass every single day looks like milestone. Is this common?? Am I worrying too much ?? Should I just leave like that ?? I can’t concentrate on my work and I have lot of work to do and I didn’t tell my work place yet . It’s 2 am now and I can’t sleep , I am alone here in UK and everything is stressing me out. Will the whole pregnancy be like this ?? Will I get used to this ?? I am just not enjoying my pregnancy but all I do is worry , worry , worry , worry ,, I hate it .

I was a real worrier too once I conceived through IVF. My advice would be to keep a journal. I found that by writing down any of my worries I could sort of move on from them, so I was less anxious. It really helped and I have so far had a very positive pregnancy experience. Why don't you try that?

It's perfectly natural...I worried from the day I found out at 6 weeks to yesterday when I saw my baby jumping around on the screen at my 12 week scan. Just keep doing everything you can and stay as calm as possible - everything you are feeling is totally normal and probably, like me, heightened by hormones.

Hi luv2017. Oh my poor darling! It is scary going through pregnancy for the first time. Hopefully you will have a midwife now, so speak to her, so she can reassure you. I couldn’t tell you how many ladies I delivered, who had been scared all through their pregnancies, and they turned out fine. Thinking of you. Diane
