    Hi all! I am pregnant after a miscarriage at 6 weeks in Aug. 2017, and am currently 8w2d. I go tomorrow for my first ultrasound, and am so excited but so very nervous too. I don't think I'll be able to really relax and enjoy this pregnancy until I see this baby and know its heart is beating.

    I hate that my previous loss is taking the joy from this pregnancy. I am trying to stay positive, but some days I just worry. Any little twinge or reduction in my symptoms has me freaking out. I just wish I knew how to focus on this baby and not constantly be taken back to last year.

    Pregnancy after a loss is so hard! It's totally normal to feel nervous. Hopefully once you see that sweet little bean tomorrow it'll give you some more reassurance. :hugs:

    I also had a wonderful 8 week sonogram this week(170 bpm) but it seems like my relaxation lasts only one day, and I am already very nervous about my 9 week sono!

    Maybe I should have posted this in the anxiety thread...
