This is my first pregnancy and it was unplanned. I am 28 years old and have been told by various doctors for years that I would have trouble conceiving when I started trying. Lo and behold, 3 months into new birth control and I got "knocked up". I decided to keep it, but now I am up all night with anxiety that it's not even alive inside me, and freaking out that I may not be able to see a heartbeat right away(I am anywhere from 6-8 weeks, will be able to tell by Monday). I have been trying to proceed as normal, even buying a few gender neutral things and some maternity clothes because of rapid weight gain. Last week my hormone levels were tested and found to be good.
I bought What To Expect hoping to alleviate my fears, instead I found more reasons to worry. I have my ultrasound Monday but I feel like I can't wait that long, I need to know NOW if everything is okay. Has anyone else felt this way?
