a little anxiety

Apr 26, 2012 - 3 comments

So before I even went to go check my mail at 2 in the morning, I was having huge anxiety about baby, the new house everything. I just wanted to hear the hb so bad last night so i could get a little peace of mind. So i tried for about 30 mins and only found mine, went back and thought I heard baby's, but this morning it was back to only mine, so um really hating my extra weight right now. I will keep trying, but don't think I can make it to May 9th without hearing the hb. I will be 12 wks 5 days. I only got 4 hrs of sleep this morning and on top of that had a nightmare. It was so scary. I was messing with the dopplar and was pressing down hard on my abdomen. Baby's hb was 150 then quickly jumped to 900. What? Had an emergency u/s and saw baby was having a seizure. Then baby's hb stopped completely and then started again at a regular pace. I really need to relax today and try not to worry so much. I also have been having these sharp pains in my right lower side that lasts about 1-2 secs. that freaks me out a bit.

The pain on your side is just round ligament pain.  It means your uterus is growing and your ligaments are stretching to keep up.  It's a good thing and should give you reasurance that the baby is growing!

I know how anxious you are.  For the first part of this pregnancy (and even sometimes now) I still get SO anxious wondering if everything is OK.  Since my last pregnancy ended in miscarriage, I KNOW exactly what can happen.  So I'm not going to tell you not to worry - you're going to do it no matter what! lol  I will say though, that you have NO signs of a pending miscarriage but rather a growing pregnancy.

And as I posted on your other journal, don't worry if a home dopler can't find the baby's heartbeat.  It took my doctor 10 mintues when I was 11 weeks to find the baby's heartbeat.  So try not to worry even if you're not able to find it before your next appointment.  It really don't mean anything is wrong!

Good luck sweety and I hope you're able to get some rest.  You and the baby need it! :)
