Don't worry, you won't be the only person in the world to have felt like this - you just have to stay as positive as you can, rest as much as you can and try to not think of the whole miscarriage thing. I know it happens and so does everyone else, but the majority of pregnancies go fine so keep that in the forefront of your mind! I found out I was pg at 8 weeks and worried until about 13 weeks but I also tried to not let it ruin the early days - don't forget to enjoy the experience and enjoy telling people too! Good luck O-O

Thanks for the reply. know im being a little silly but maybe its that im so tired today that its playing on my mind. When i was at doc on Tue having it confirmed i asked him adout it and he said that 1 in 7 end in miscarrige but that means that there are 6 healthy births. Will still tell them tonight dont think i can skirt the whole avoiding foods thing much longer and God forbid anything happens at least ill have them around to support me as DH works away from home. Good luck :thnk :thnk

don't worry that is perfectly normal. You will probably worry about the baby at various times during the pregnancy, are they healthy etc and then when they are born you just worry about everything else >:o) >:o) hope the pregnancy goes well

I don't think that when you tell people will affect the outcome of your pg. You might even be more relaxed when you have your mum to confide in. Good luck!!

I think a bit of support from your mom might be just the thing. I have told the people closest to me and it is a relief, take a lot of pressure off :o)ll

Hey its normal to worry. I was anxious up until 13 weeks and then I realaxed, until last week as I had my scan coming up and then I was bit worried again. Really its not something you have control over so its better to just try and take it as calm as possible as I am sure this is much better for babs too!!
