10+3 pregnant and worried about MMC

Hello everyone
This is my first pregnancy. I got pregnant really quickly after deciding to start trying with my partner. I was so happy when I got the 2 lines!! I found out super early (4 weeks) and then at around 5 weeks I started bleeding, it wasn't heavy, more like spotting but I had to have an early scan which showed an empty sac. They asked me to go back in a week which was the hardest week of my life. A week later at 6+4 I saw baby and HB! smile now I'm 10+3 and I'm worrying about my 12 week scan in less than 2 weeks. I haven't had hardly any pregnancy symptoms since the start of it. No sickness, only nausea when I'm hungry. My breasts were sore but now they're only a little tender. The only real symptom I have is tiredness but I don't know if I'm tired because of the stress or because of the baby!! What are the chances I'll go for this 12 week scan and they'll tell me my baby died? I can't stop googling and reading these forums I'm driving myself crazy I just want my baby to be ok sad

Pregnancy is super hard! My MIL says that all this worrying is preparation for the next 18 years of your child's life and beyond, and that it never eases. Try and ride it out 🙂
I don't know if there's a way of telling you what the chances are of it being ok or not are, it either will or won't be unfortunately. Please remember that every pregnancy is different so what one woman experienced won't be the same as you, so googling may not help you or reassure you that much. I suffered a loss in April and had strong symptoms right up until the bleeding, and have had strong symptoms in my current pregnancy too (14 + 3 today, healthy baby) so there really is no way to symptom spot!
Could you refer yourself to an early pregnancy unit at your local hospital for some reassurance? We had, I think, four before the 12 week scan to track progress as I had a small bleed at about 6 weeks and my anxiety was through the roof.
