never knew I would worry so much

I mean, I knew I would worry as my pregnancy progresses, it just kind of comes with the territory, but this is ridiculous!  I'm so scared of having a miscarriage!  I have no real reason to, I've had some minor cramping, but no bleeding at all, and all of the cramping is very mild unless I stand up too fast.  Then I get a sharp pain sometimes that lasts for just a couple seconds.  I just think that I feel like since it took me so long to get pregnant, I had convinced myself that it would never happen.  And now I feel like I'm convincing myself that this won't work out.  Why am I doing this to myself?!  I know what I"m doing, and yet I still worry!  I'm going to be a nervous wreck in nine months if I keep this up!

I think this will slowly come to an end as the time progresses and you get to the 1/2 way mark. I have had 2 previous MC's and I am concerned now too. I keep on telling myself that I have a 1/4 chance of MC-ing and a 3/4 chance of having a healthy baby. You have the same chance....so if you think about it....you have a great chance of having a healthy baby. I think you need to stop worrying and enjoy your pregnancy. I have had ppl tell me the same thing because they worried the entire time and now regret not enjoying their preg with their precious little ones. I hope this helps a little. There is no need to worry until there is a reason to worry - you know what I mean? Does it make sense?  I hope this helps a little. Continue to get support and start some fun threads like the positive things of preg and maybe this will help you think more positively. Good Luck!

OMG,  i feel the exact same way, i keep constantly trying to rush my pregnancy saying that my baby is not safe inside me, i'm scared of having a miscarrige also. this is my first child, and i just want everything to go right. I'm pretty sure our pregnancies will be just fine, i just dont know why we're doing this to ourselves though, maybe it's just our overprotectiveness???
