We have been TTC for 2 years, now we are PG and i am nervous of a miscarriage...

I am nervous for one because we have been wanting this for SO LONG.

An acquaintance of mine messaged me and said, "Congratulations on your pregnancy, sorry i didnt say anything sooner, but i was pregnant too and had a miscarriage it was really hard."...

Is it normal to be nervous of a miscarriage sometimes? Do other people think like that?

I try not to harp on it because im not going to let myself stress and i just dont want those negative thoughts.

  • Try to relax and just enjoy the pregnancy. Unfortunately miscarriages do happen but so do car accidents and lightening strikes. It does no good to worry about any of it. Just focus on being healthy. Congratulations!!!

  • Congratulations on your pregnancy. Miscarriages happen sometimes, but many times they don't. Especially after you make it to twelve weeks, your risk drops. Try to relax and think the best.

  • Yes, it's normal. I had two difficult pregnancies and a miscarriage in between, and to be totally honest, I worried right up until they were out and healthy. I can say "don't worry" all I want, but you probably will anyway. As moms, we will worry about them forever, even as they are toddlers and teenagers and going off on their own, so it's totally normal to worry when you can't even see or feel them. It will probably get easier once you start feeling kicks and you have that physical reassurance that the baby is in there moving around.

  • I was threatening to miscarry with my son, who is now almost 17. I'm sure everything is going alone fine but there's always that fear that something will go wrong. I think women are just programmed to worry. Talk to your doctor about your concerns.

  • I think women are just programmed to worry.

    ^^ Isn't that the truth! Sometimes I feel like all I do is worry.

  • Yes I worry about a miscarriage too. I am only 5 week pregnant and so scared and can't wait until I am past the worrying point. I also have a four month old son and did the same thing with him. I worried and worried especially because I had lots of bleeding with him due to placenta previa. Good luck to you and congratulations. We just hve to try not to worry about it because worrying can make it worse by causing you undue stress. :)

  • I was nervous and paranoid for a while at the beginning of my pregnancy. But just try to relax... enjoy the morning sickness and so on! :P

    There will be changes and ebbs and flows that will make you more nervous (I was always comforted in how sick I felt!). As soon as you feel him or her kicking the crap out of your insides, you will be fine.

    Its normal to be nervous but don't be worried!
