I had a horrendous miscarriage about 3 years ago, i then had a baby get to 13 weeks but i terminated because it was a baby from sexual assult and it would gave absolutely destroyed my mental health.

Then i had dd and now im pregnant again. I am unrationable fear of losing this pregnancy. Can anyone talk some sense into me sad

Wow, what a lot you've been through, you poor thing.

I don't think you're being irrational, I think it's perfectly natural to fear the worst when you've been through so much.

Just try to relax and remember there is no evidence at all to suggest that a termination has any impact on future pregnancies, nor that one miscarriage is an indication of any higher risk subsequently. By which logic you are at no higher risk than the average.

Take it one day at a time and try to keep focussed on your dd and your little one on the way. Good luck, and remember to breathe!
