Feeling isolated in early pregnancy

Hi all,

Anyone else fed up with pregnancy in the early stages? Feel as though I should be really excited but just feel very on my own. Also feeling pretty tired and find exercising at a lower intensity so boring!

Waiting until after my 12 week scan before telling people. Hoping I will feel less isolated once I can share my news. Also hoping I can connect with the pregnancy a bit more after the scan. Finding this difficult after a miscarriage last time.

Anyone else had similar feelings?

I'm. 5+1 and can relate to what your saying (although not miscarriage). I have told close friends and family but not too many people. I'm tired, terrified, esp had a bit of bleeding fri night, all ok as far as we know!

I have booked a private early can for 7+4 as can't wait 12 weeks! We have also named baby sweetpea!

Hope it all goes well for you

I have felt the same, I am 13+1 and had my scan on Friday, all appears to be well so far but I have felt quite lonely at times as my oh doesn't really talk about baby stuff - I think he was really nervous about the scan and didn't want to get to excited to early. I'm still not telling family for another few weeks as I have made them all Xmas cards from the baby with the scan photo on the front. I can't wait until especially my mum & sister know as I'll really have people to talk about it with. I'm hoping oh will start to relax a bit now and we can start to plan stuff but the wait has been a long one! congratulations to you both!

Glad all ok at scan lizzy!

Thanks to both of you smile. Hope your scan goes well Augustwedding. 12 weeks feels like an agonisingly long time to wait, so I can see why you would want to go for an early scan.

I like the xmas card idea Lizzy. My scan is next week and I'm hoping it won't take too long to get test results back. Will be such a relief to tell people and (hopefully) get some reassurance that things are ok. I think I'm scared of getting too far ahead of myself just now and haven't told my family yet either.

Will also be glad to stop having to give vague answers to certain questions to avoid giving the game away before we're ready to tell. I'm sure some people must think I'm being really weird at the moment!

Hi Jellybean, I'm now 28 weeks but could totally relate to your post until I started to feel kicks at 15 weeks. After having a MC, then having very few symptoms this time around, I couldn't get excited or bond as I was afraid of what could happen again. I particularly saw that DH couldn't get excited until he felt kicks later on. I underestimated how much the miscarriage had effected him.
We went for an early scan this time around and definitely seeing the heartbeat got me more excited.
Best of luck with your pregnancy!

Thanks blankfornames, that's makes me feel more normal!
