    Hi All,
    I had a scan at 7+3 that went really well, but it has been three weeks now. My symptoms have eased up and I feel better, which is great...except my last pg ended in a missed miscarriage and I had no idea anything was amiss until my 12 week scan. I had seen the HB that time at 6 +5, and at that point all was looking good. It turned out that the baby had stopped growing at 8+6, and my symptoms had eased up over the couple weeks before the 12 week scan but I thought it was just normal for that to happen. So here we are today, at 10+1 and I have not had any spotting this time since before the first ultrasound, but I am worried that something is wrong and I don't know it and when I go back in two weeks the same thing that happened before is going to happen again. I am so nervous about this, in fact, that I woke up at 6 am and could not go back to sleep I was so worried that something was wrong with the baby. I kind of want to call my doctor and ask to be seen just for some reassurance, as I am not sure that I can deal with the anxiety of not knowing for the next two weeks. At the same time, I worry that my doctor will think I am crazy/paranoid for wanting to be seen without having bleeding or something like that. So what do you girls think? And what should I do? Is it normal to be this worried when PAL? Thanks for putting up with the rant.... :flower:

    Oh hun it's so normal, I was exactly the same. I was almost in hysterics before my 12 week scan, I was so scared to be told baby had stopped growing but thankfully everything is fine. I had a hormone surge at around 11 weeks which resulted in me being even sicker but now it seems to be tapering off and it has scared me, but I try to rationalise it - we have to feel better at some point surely? x
