Hi ladies! Sorry in advance for long post... I'm 16+1, and I'm really worried about my little one. I'm not at the feeling movement stage, though I did once think I felt some, sort of, bubble feelings. But that was more than a week ago, and nothing at all since. I've been having weird pains and twinges, some in my sides, others below my pubic bone and to the right. Nausea has basically gone, except a few brief waves in past few days. Basically, I don't feel all that pregnant. However, none of this was worrying me too much - read online it was pretty normal - until... Earlier this week, our house was burgled. We were asleep in bed, and somebody climbed through a downstairs window, went through literally every room but ours, turned cupboards, drawers etc inside out, made off with a bunch of stuff. Police have arrested them and we will get most of our stuff back eventually - once it's released from their evidence cupboard, of course! Could have been much worse tbh. BUT it's really freaked me out, obviously. Just the idea someone was in here, gives me the creeps. Especially as we think that me getting up to go to the loo has disturbed them - I mean, what if I'd run into them...?! I am doing my absolute best to be calm and avoid stress, but I can't help it. The night after it happened, I had a panic attack. I've been waking up in the night at every slight noise. I feel tired and ill through the day. Most of all though, I'm worried about the baby. I'm annoyed at myself for feeling stressed out, because I'm surely stressing the baby out? Then I get even more worried - it's a vicious cycle I can't seem to break! I just wish it was moving already, so I could be reassured by feeling movement. I have the midwife middle of next week, but that feels so far away. It's been so long since our last scan at 12 weeks (when baby was looking great, except it barely moved the whole time). I'd feel daft bothering the hospital - I've not had any bleeding or severe pain or anything. But I wish I could be checked over. I know there's no answer to all this, I just need to wait out the next few days until the midwife, and then hopefully she'll listen to the heartbeat and tell me all is well. Just wondered if anyone else had been through stressful or traumatic events early second tri: hopefully you'll tell me everything turned out fine with baby...??
