I know this is silly but do you still worry once by the safe stage?

    HI there everybody, Im expecting my first, im 20yrs old. Was at my first scan on monday and hankfully everything is going good, but does anyone worry once by that "12week safe stage" that somethings going to happen or is it just me being silly.

    Would love to hear views from other ppl. Thanks all xx:hug:

    I still worry. Everyone tells me not to but how can I not. I have had 10 pregnancies and 3 daughters. I don't worry like a freak though. The only time I worried too much with this pregnancy is the listeria outbreak here in canada at the same time I found out I was pregnant around.

    I still worry to, and ill worry throughout the whole of my pregnancy. It's hard not to worry tbh, and i wont beleive anyone who tells me they don't,won't,or havn't worried.

    Its normal to keep worrying, i think untill babys actually born there will still be things to worry about.
    I bought a doppler to keep myself reassured when i feel i need it.

    You go to a site that does them (click on one to get linked to a site) and make one up, then you need the bbcode and paste teh code into teh signature bit in your user cp

    I still worry and im half way through lol .
    Luckily the doppler does help with worry issues , I found the first 10 weeks the most worrying time . And its my third baby . So i guess it never gets and easier . But The positive things that happen by far out way the worry :) . xxx .

    I sneak into where they are sleeping and check on them and watch to see if their chests are moving. I didn't mean the baby inside me.. I really want a doppler. I tried my crappy nursery one :( still no heartbeat but thats expected.

    You will ALWAYS worry.

    You'll worry until 12 weeks.

    Then until your next scan at 20.

    Then until you're 'viable' at 24 weeks.

    Then until your term

    Then until the birth

    Then when they are babies

    Then if they are sleeping/eating/moving/whatever in case of SIDS/cotdeath/chocking/etc

    Then when they are kids

    And then, when you're old you'll still worry about them coming home late when they're in their 30s, because that's what Mum's do. We worry.

    So, IMO it isn't worth the stress. If something is going to happen then you cannot prevent it so don't ruin what you have but being stressed all the time. Relax, and try to enjoy motherhood.

    I still worry now but as someone said if something is going to happen there is nothing you can do to prevent it. I'm not as bad as I was but I still have days that get me panicky.

    When I had a threatened miscarriage (was fine after thank god) I asked the doctor when my baby was "safe." He said "when it's in your arms." So true!!
