Cant stop worrying :(

I was 5 weeks yesterday...and in my last pregnancy (nearly 3 months ago) they told me the baby had stopped growing at 5 weeks 3 days. I know this is a different pregnancy and there is no reason i should miscarry again, but i cant think about anything else. I was fine until this 5 weeks mark. Suddenly it seems like i have lots of aches and pains, i cant stop checking for spotting, i havent slept well for the past three nights. I know its stupid because if its going to happen there is nothing i can do about it, but its very hard.

Is anyone else pregnant after a loss, and feel the same way? How do you get yourself to relax?

oh bless makingtodo please try not to worry i know its difficult ive been there. You need to take it 1 step/day at a time. The aches and pains are all normal so i tell myself.

If your very very worried maybe wait till 6 weeks and pop into your local epu and ask for a scan. Im sure with your history they will give you a scan and then you will know and have peace of mind, altough i can assure you that peace of mind lasts that day then the next day you will worry again. Im sorry your feeling so stressed and worried please take care and look after yourself and bubba! xx

I have a scan booked for 9 days time, as i conceived my first cycle after miscarrige...it was meant to be last friday but i told them i thought it would be too early and i would just worry for another 2 weeks till a rescan...now i am kicking myself.

I just cant shake the feeling today I have three other children, so its not like i dont know early pregnancy can be up and down, i bled with the first two.

Roll on 12 weeks

oh 9 day will fly by honestly! Can you perhaps call and ask if they will squeeze you in earlier?? You could say you have cramps which in theory you do..........

If it will make you feel better having it now theres no harm in asking them?

I conceived 6 days after my miscarriage so we had the confusion about dates too. Yep thats 6 days! the scan confirmed it and i feel alot better having seen my bubbs! Good luck and please do keep me posted. Does your local hospital have a walk in clinic maybe??

makingdotoo - I conceived DD straight after miscarriage (at 6.5 weeks). I had heavy bleeding early in the pregnancy with her and was so anxious throughout but she was absolutely fine and is now a robust 18-month-old. Am now pregnant again (five weeks on Sunday) and feel much more relaxed this time around but I do think the nerves are completely normal straight after MC. I think you are right to have opted for a later scan - imagine how you'd feel if it was ambiguous because they'd scanned too early. But if you feel the wait will drive you mad see if you can get an earlier one. Best of luck and don't forget to let us know how you get on

I phoned about an earlier scan earlier today, but thankfully i have been ignored! You are completely right about having scans to early, i remember that happened with my son, and i had to wait 2 weeks for a rescan, just to see anything other than the sac. I was so nervous and worried. I will keep my scan for the 3rd of july.

Thankfully hmm my sickness kicked in with avengence, the fatigue came gushing back, and the runs have stopped. I think i may have just ate something a bit dodgy. Panic over, at least for today. thanks for the support ladies.

makingdotoo if you haven't found them already there are 2 threads on here for people who are pregnant after miscarriage - pregnancy after miscarriage, and 4 weeks and bricking it lounge (or similar!). you might like to take a look as they can give ongoing support as there are so many of us in similar situations. hesitate to say it's good to see you're feeling more pregnant now, but you know what I mean smile
