I am 7 weeks pregnant today. This will be my first baby. I had a miscarriage back in May and my husband and I had been trying for ages.
I am just so paranoid something is going to go wrong. I can't seem to relax. Every time I go to the loo I think I'm going to see blood. I know I'm being so negative! I just want everything to be OK.
Are these nerves normal? Does anyone else feel on high alert?
I have an appointment booked on 30th November (not for scan but an antenatal booking appointment) but it seems such a long way away!!!
Does anyone have any tips to relax and enjoy?
I feel so tuned in with every twinge and pain too. My breasts are sore and I am suffering from nausea (pretty much all day long) which I'm pleased with as I know that means I'm still pregnant- but I do get stomach cramps...this puts me on high alert :-(
Sorry I hope not coming across as a negative post just wanting other people's opinions of their first few weeks!!

Jenny it’s totally normal hun, especially after a miscarriage. This time last year I was 7 weeks pregnant and in the midst of a miscarriage myself, so I’ve been there and know the pain they cause. All I can say is that worrying is a part of pregnancy and motherhood, just keep reassuring yourself and take each day as it comes. Don’t stress yourself over being negative or positive, just try and deal with your emotions as they are and you’ll be fine.
I turn 40 weeks tomorrow and I still worry everyday! Wish you all the best xx

Hi there, I have seven children, currently pregnant with our eighth. I have also had three miscarriages, the last one in May. It is quite normal to feel nervous and some disbelief with a pregnancy after a miscarriage. It is important to remember you are not alone, 1 in 3 pregnancies ends with a miscarriage so many many women have been where you are now and have gone on to have healthy babies. If you are feeling sick it is a good sign that your hormone levels are high enough to maintain the pregnancy. Try to relax and focus on other things that are going on, like Christmas is only seven Fridays away! See the end of November is closer already!! All the best for a wonderful and healthy pregnancy.

My tubes have been tied for almost 10 years now and I've been planning on getting them untied next year. For some reason sometimes before I come in my cycle i get really nauseous. My last cycle was october 31 which came 6 days early and only lasted for 3 days. Was really weird especially since I'm always regular. Cycle usually lasts about 6/7 days and cycle comes every 28 days. Two days after my cycle i noticed a very light pink tinge on toilet paper after I wiped and for about 24hrs everyone I used the bathroom and wiped there was brown spotting in the tissue. I recently became very nauseous, light cramping, lower abdominal pressure, and light headed. I took a 6 day sooner first response and received a very faint line. Two of my coworkers seen it also. After an hour the faint line had disappeared. Mind you, I took this test 2bweeks before my cycle and about 1 week after my previous cycle. I'm still a little nauseous but am having a lot of abdominal pressure along with mild cramping. I'm so confused on what's going on. What are the odds of my tubes coming loose. Someone please tell me what's going on!!!

This is my first time being pregnant too, although I haven’t had a miscarriage before I’m still the same, I’m googling every little thing and winding myself up more. I’m 9 weeks today and had my first appointment yesterday but I just can’t help worrying. I’m so excited at the same time Ive just never had so many emotions over one thing. I’ve just sat googling for half an hour whether I can use a bath bomb from lush or not that my mam bought me for my birthday, I still don’t even know if I can. That mixed with the vitamins and folic acid and remembering the right and wrong things to eat my head is baffled.

Hi ladies. I'm exactly the same. I'm 5weeks 5 days and am absolutely wracked with anxiety about miscarrying. This is my first proper pregnancy and everything that is happening to my body is very new. I had sore boobs then today I thought they stopped and panicked, now they're back but I'm still paranoid. I'm a serial knicker checker and worry if I haven't had any cramps or bloating. I keep telling myself that statistically everything is more likely to go well and that my body knows what's going on and I just need to have faith and trust in it's ability. It worked for about a week and then the paranoia came back. It's driving me crazy and my poor husband had to deal with me becoming a blubbering mess this morning.
