Hey ladies I'm 18 weeks and really starting to love being pregnant, I'm at the stage where smells don't bug me any more and I LOVE to eat everything and I look cute and pregnant but I worry so much that something is going to happen to the baby. I have wished for a baby all my life and now that I'm going to have one I'm so scared that something is going to happen... I've had a great pregnancy (Well apart from morning sickness for 2 months) every time I go to the doctor she has nothing but good news and the baby moves and kicks a ton, no cramps or bleeding ever but...every little ache and pain I get all freaked out over even though I know its nothing... I worry so much... I know it's really stupid...but I can't help it... Any advice that might put my overactive mind at rest??????

hey ninaatk, i dont really have any advice but i know how you are feeling. im 17 weeks with my first. My hubby and i have been trying for three years to have one even though the docs. said he couldnt we didnt give up. now that im preg. i feel the same way you do. i worry over every thing and so far there hasnt been any thing to worry about. im sorry that i dont have any advice but i thought it might help to know there are others who feel the same way. good luck and take care.

Nope, not really...I freak out about everything as well, being this is my first time. I think no matter how many experienced women tell me not to worry so much, I can't help it. I think it does get easier with time though...I notice i'm not worried AS much as I start to learn more...but certainly still worry. So should I say to you "don't worry"?? haha.. yeah....

Its funny cuz this is my 4th and I cant remember being worried like I am now. I am 18 weeks tomorrow and still feel no movement. That is not supposed to be the case for a 4th kid, so I am making myself insane. I am sure everything is fine with you guys! Just try to relax a little and do what I am considering - rent or buy a doppler!

I'm 22wks now and I still worry every now and then, but the only advice i can give you is try not to worry too much, because a lot of us feel the same way too =)

Totally agree with everyone! This is my first and I am now 20wk and have my u/s tomorrow. I can't wait to get it over and done with, just to know that everything is ok! Like you ninaatk, I too have had the 'perfect' pregnancy - no morning sickness, no pain or bleeding, baby looked fine on 1st u/s, strong heartbeat and lots of movements and kicks! It just feels like I am now waiting for something to go wrong. Like I say, I think once I am told that everything is ok tomorrow, I will be able to stop worrying so much...take care x

I freak out about everything as well. This is my second pregnancy, and it doesn't get any better with your second..(lol) I had placenta previa up until 22weeks(I am 32w now) and I bled a lot...and now I freak out even if I have a little bit of discharge. I'm sure everything will be okay for you..Good Luck with your pregnancy.
