This is my first pregnancy I'm only 8 weeks 5 days and i feel as if i can't settle my nerves down untill i have my first scan. I'm very excited and happy about being pregnant but i just can't show it. I feel as if if i do and something goes wrong i would be more hurt. It's a very wierd feeling. Has anyone else felt like this?
Im exactly the same, i'm even earlier, only 5 weeks and part of me doesn't want to believe it incase it goes wrong. I wanted this so badly and i feel wrong for not showing my excitment but im just so scared.
I had my first doctors appointment yesterday, she basically did nothing. I thought she would take my blood/test me to actually confirm pregnancy but nothing. She just told me to make a appointment with the midwife for a few weeks time.
One thing she did tell me was to take no vitamins apart from folic acid, she said you dont need any extra vitamins and the ones on the shelf for pregnancy are a waste of money. What happened on your 1st appointment?
Im hoping our feelings are normal, i'm sure after our first scan we'll be super excited!!
Its a horrible feeling that were to scared to show our excitment . Spose a lot of women feel like that untill there first scan.
I took 6 pregnancy tests and they all come out positive i think i took so many just to be 100% sure and plus i couldn't believe my eyes when it did come out positve.
My first app with the doctor was the exact same as yours he just confirmed it by signing a form and giving me an infomation pack and also said book an app with the midwife.
when i had my first midwife app we just went over what to eat what to avoid ect then she told me to book a doctors app to get my blood tests done (which i still have to do just scared of the results but I'm going to be strong and book them later on today).
When i read the stories from the people in the US they have had an ultra sound at around 7 weeks, gosh i wish they would do that here in the UK!
Hope everything goes well for you and baby will be okay. I'm sure it will but it don't stop us from being paranoid aye
Hi Ladies, you are so not alone on this. I felt like this to. I couldnt sleep, couldnt eat and was checking to loo roll every time i went toilet. My husband said i was hell and i managed to be scanned at 8,9,10,12+3 weeks due to ltttc before hand. The 12 weeks went so slowly. How ever during this time every now and then i would get a little rush of happiness just thinking about the little perfect baby that was starting to grow inside me. I still felt worried around my 20 week scan as i wasnt feeling movement and alot of other people were. I know it is really hard and easy for me to say now as little one is due any day but try to relax and enjoy being pregnant, it dont last long and you wont get the time back. It truly is the most special time of my life and feel so lucky to be able to experience it. I wish you all healthy pregnancys and births. x
(Not sure if you had thought about an early private scan, in the uk these can be done from around 7 weeks and cost as little as £60)
I dont know, i think i'd still be scared after 7 weeks, thats still really early isnt it.
Haha! what are we like, we neeed to snap out of this and be EXCITED!!
I really think at 12 weeks, after my scan and when i'm telling people i will be excited and not scared, I better be!!
I dont even feel pregnant now, i had a few minor tell tale symptoms at the very beginning but now all i have are sore boobs, no sickness or anything. I think if i threw up a few times it would feel more real!! (People are probably raging that i just wrote that!!)
Wow it's really nice to know that I'm not and wasn't alone in feeling like this, i felt bad for having these feelings and not being able to show how happy i truly am. I also get a rush of excitment from time to time but it doesnt last long cause then my mind starts playing its silly mind tricks again.
Aww I wish you all the best having baby and wish you all the best for after ).
You have easied my mind quite a lot, even had a smile on my face . I will try to enjoy this pregnancy as much as i can.
I only have sore breasts too, nothing else. Although i have started to get really bad cravings from Morrisons Chocolate milkshake, it has to be Morrisons otherwise it does not appeal to me what so ever.
I can't wait to start telling people, might make it more real. I haven't even told my parants yet as I'm too scared to share them good news for something bad to happen. Argghh this feeling really bugs me! May have to tell my parants then it may also make it feel more real.
I am/was exactly the same guys- I think most of us are! I'm just starting to feel a bit more secure about it now I'm 10 weeks, but my scan isn't until 13 weeks due to being away at 12 weeks doh! I've ordered a doppler from ebay so itching for that to arrive so I can try to hear HB! Telling both our parents this weekend so I think i'll really start to feel excited after that!
Oh, but I am still checking the loo roll every time! haha
Hi ladies, its completely natural to feel this way.
EmmaLouise, maybe telling your mum would be a good think, you'll have someone to talk to and share your concerns, your mum has been through it and will comfort you I'm sure.
Hope the time comes soon where you can relax and enjoy it.
I hope it does too.. Everytime i go to tell her nothing comes out of my mouth :/. I'm 21 will be 22 when i have my baby and I'm still scared of telling my parants even though i know they would be happy and proud for me.
I'll give it untill next week then I'll just blurt it out (nicely) to them both.
I have someone to share my concerns with as luckly I'm very close to my Sister so she sits there listening to me and helping me with things bless her
