Hi all! I'm a naturally anxious person, I also suffer with depression and am currently in the process of coming off some antidepressants as I've been doing pretty well for the past 8 months or so now. I'm now 10 weeks pregnant and feeling a bit anxious because my nausea is subsiding, I'm a bit paranoid that maybe I've had a missed miscarriage. I don't necessarily have a huge amount of evidence to support this apart from a bit less nausea than before, so part of my brain is trying to just ignore that feeling and put it down to anxiety (and possibly reduced antidepressants). But the other part of me wonders if it's worth paying for a private scan just for some reassurance? But then how long will that reassurance last? My NHS 12 week scan is booked for 2 weeks today, which feels like an age away right now! I had an early scan due to bleeding at 6+4 and managed to see a heartbeat so trying to hold on to that as a positive sign too. Anyone else have similar worries or experience?
