I'm new here and definitely very new to pregnancy.
This is most likely something you have read before and/or you are all familiar here. Me and my husband have been trying to conceive for few months and we found out last Saturday that I am pregnant. This is all we ever wanted, however, after the first few minutes of excitement, I have been overwhelmed by anxiety and preoccupation. I am usually a worrier, but I can't stop checking in with my body for any small change or odd symptom. I am only 4 weeks in and I can't even imagine how this is going to be like. I'm terrified of a miscarriage and I really don't know how to cope with all the worry and anxiety right now. The support from the medical staff is very little (they don't even want to see you before 10 weeks) and I feel left alone with my own worries.
Don't get me wrong, my husband is super supportive, but it is my body, my responsibility...something I can't just decide to switch off for an hour or so and then check again later. It's literally inside me 24/7.
How have you dealt with these feelings? Any advice or suggestion would be much appreciated. Thank you.
