Post subject: Feeling so Anxious :(
I cant shake it, in fact the closer to 12 weeks i get the worse i feel.
I still cant shake the feeling that something is going to go wrong.
I used my Doppler last night for an hour and couldn’t find anything for ages so I totally panicked. Had a bath and then found it no problem. But that was it then the panic was set in. I even had another go this morning but because I was rushing only found it for a few seconds and then lost it again!
I just cant imagine getting past 12 weeks, or imagine having a bump or having a baby – it just feels like it will never happen!
Whats wrong with me I am so scared I will lose my little flump!!! xx

oh Elp after what you have been through I think it's only normal to feel constantly anxious. I am a nervous wreck also and to top it all I need to wait until I am 14 weeks to get the all clear. The 12th week is around the corner so try not to worry too much (difficult I know). I don't know how religious you are but I do find comfort in praying. Lots of hugs xxx

Its totally understandable.
I'm 12wk tomorrow an can safely say that feeling still hasn't gone. I don't think it will untill we are holding our babies.
I'm quite sure your little 'flump' is there for the long haul. You've seen her/him, heard her/him please try to relax.
And please please please don't sit there for an hour using your doppler Its just going to cause you undue stress thats really not good for you or you flump!!!
If you look for 5/10mins with no luck, DON'T PANIC!! Put it down and leave it a bit. Go for a wee, walk up and down the stairs and maybe try again. More than likely baby is just tucked away having a kip...and your there rudely sticking your doppler probe into its comfy abode
When I found mine I could find it quite easy every time, as the times gone on (even though my uterus is above my pubic bone now) i'm having more and more trouble finding it..but I can hear it doing its kung-fu moves then pick the HB up for a millisecond then its gone again.
Also...My snooty sonogropher gave me a polite warning about using the dopplers everyday too. Gave me all this shpeal about it being electronic etc and not advised to use it long term as they are unaware of long term effect etc. I still use mine daily but literately for 2-3mins a day

Its completely normal - especially after what you've been through. Despite being scanned twice already, I couldn't focus at all the morning of my 13 week one and was so stressed it made me feel light headed. I don't think it was until I started feeling him move at 15 weeks I felt happy and even then I had panics when he stopped or one time when I had really bad cramping

oh bless you Erin, the ladies here have given you some lovely advice and you wouldn't be normal if you didn't feel anxious - what kind of weirdo just breezes through the first 3 months of pregnancy without a care in the world?!!! but try not to make yourself poorly with worry, there are so many things in life we just cannot imagine happening because we have never experienced them, when you are there with a huge bump feeling uncomfortable and achey we'll all remind you of how you couldn't imagine it!! take care my lovely xxx

Erin after everything you have been through its totally understandable to feel that way. I'm incredibly anxious too and wish I could relax a little. I can't find bubs at all with my Doppler but I'm not stressing yet as its so tiny. I'm definitely getting more nervous as my 12 week scan approaches. Hugs xx
