I have the same problem. I feel like I stress too much and i dont want to see the scans or hear the heart beat for in fear of it not being there like last time. I need to find a way to cope with everything. I've tried meditation but my mind wanders too much for that.

It's okay if your mind wanders.  Putting stress on yourself when meditating defeats the purpose.  When your mind wanders and you realize it, just go back to focus on whatever it is your form of meditation focuses on.  We all have this problem, but where we want to get to, and I'm not saying we ever do, is to not judge the meditation but let it happen.  That's meditating.

Are you an anxiety sufferer in general, or is it just about this one thing?

Anxiety during the first pregnancy and worry about miscarriage is normal and it's compounded and more so if you've had a previous miscarriage.  Many women have miscarriages and go on to have a normal, health pregnancy after.  So, try to stay active and busy so time passes sooner.  good luck

I know how you feel, i had a healthy baby boy in 2015, 2nd pregnancy ended in a missed miscarriage at our 13 week scan in March this year. (We had previously heard babys heartbeat at 8 weeks) and it was absolutely heartbreaking.
I am now pregnant for the 3rd time and have been so nervous since finding out. I am 16 weeks and it was so good to hear baby still had a heartbeat at our 13 week scan.
I still have so many moments of worry and anxiety.
Good Luck with your scan on Friday xx
