Hello, I'm Amber and I'm seventeen years old and I'm about 15 weeks pregnant I don't know if anyone has had this feeling before of thinking you wont hear a heartbeat on your first ultrasound..
The only reason im so scares I because I has a miscarriage with my first child in October. I haven't had any bleeding or any signs of miscarriage on my second child. I know how a miscarriage feels like, it might be different for other women, but my miscarriage experience was painful for days and alot of bleeding.
Luckly I haven't had any of the symptoms of miscarriage. I'm just afraid that when I go to my ultrasound that the baby's heartbeat is gone or anything like that. Its hard for my mom and I. I'm just praying everything will be okay! Anyone have advice for me? I hate going trough this hard time, I need some convinced that everything will be okay.
My appointment is on Monday, 8th. I'll let you know how it goes!
I know exactly how you feel. I'm no longer a teen, but was 17 when I got pregnant with my DD. Even now it's scary to go in to hear the heartbeat because I can't help but worry. Just try to relax and think positively. I know that's easier said than done. I also have a checkup on the 8th and it seems like we're pretty close in weeks!
Even women who haven't experienced a loss have this feeling. There isn't much I can say except try and not obsess over it, constantly worrying will not help. Try and think positively. That being said, I know that is pretty much impossible! Good luck!
UPDATE!: My mom saw how nervous I was and got me a pregnancy test WITHOUT me knowing. She does have much money but she was willing to show that everything is fine. The first test didn't work. It was bugged. The second test, which I just took 5 mins ago worked and showed up within 5 seconds! My hormones are crazy right now! But I feel so much better and more relaxed for tomorrow!
