  • As long as you aren't cramping or bleeding, youand baby are just fine. We all had our worries, but hang in there. Before you know it you will be holding your little one in your arms :)

  • I know what it's like to be worried, I had a miscarriage before having my son (now 2) and I'm currently about 8 weeks pregnant with my second. With my son, I never had ANY symptoms. No morning sickness, no mood swings, no swollen breasts, no cravings, nothing. With this one, I've had all of those. But not all the time. Every pregnancy is different. Like rhianna1708 says, as long as you're not cramping or bleeding, you really shouldn't worry too much... Hang in there!

  • I am 13 weeks pregnant and thought the same thing. But when I went in for my 10 week appt. I heard and saw the heart beat. I have heard it every week since then. I had a missed miscarriage at 6/1 weeks in Feb. and had no symptoms. I have been very anxious about it happening again.

  • It is easy for our anxiety and worry to take over, especially when we see or read things on the internet. I was the same way when I first got pregnant. When I got pregnant, I had a few friends who had miscarriages and their stories were always on my mind. I worried a lot in the beginning. However, you have to realize that stress is not good for your baby. As long as you are not bleeding or cramping then you should be okay. Good Luck.

  • I had miscarriages and even though this pregnancy is going alot better I still worry. There where days at first I didn't feel very pregnant either but then I got further along I started feeling more and more pregnant lol. Plus I wouldn't worry unless you started cramping, bleeding or have a gush of fluid. Good luck
