so far i have had 3 scans after suffering a blighted ovum in June Last Year.
A private scan at 8 weeks 6 days , everything looked fine and heartbeat was strong. 17th December
An early scan at 9 weeks 4 days , again everything looked fine and heartbeat was strong. 22nd December
booking appointment downs scan at what we thought was 11 weeks 1 day scan 0n 4th January but measured 1 week ahead. (so either way reaching 13 weeks or 14 weeks) again looked healthy and heartbeat was strong.
After suffering a miscarriage before i am now and have always been terrified that it will happen again . i never made it past 7 weeks before. Im terrified and family nurse said it is unlikely but not unheard of and im panicking alot now what are the chances my baby will ok??

SO sorry to hear about your loss. I miscarried a few years ago and went onto having two healthy children after that. Just like you i crossed off everyday and every week. There's no guarantee that any pregnancy will result in a healthy baby so as an expectant mother i was always on edge. What you are feeling is normal and only you can take hold of your feelings and push it back everytime you feel concerned.
all you can do is take it one day at a time and dont let yourself worry too much ( i know its easier said than done) but try to enjoy your pregnancy as much as you can....
I hope everything works out for you and you give birth to a happy healthy baby. X
