good evening all. this is a silly post i'm just being silly and over reacting but i just wanted to talk about it as i don't have many people i can talk to at the moment. my mum just tells me everything is fine and not to be so silly. i have been reading through some posts on this site and i have to say i have been scaring myself reading some as i never knew so many problems existed with pregnancy. i am roughly 14 weeks now and i have my first scan tomorrow well today (wednesday 23rd). i've had lots of tummy stretching and the tightness (i still have to use a hot water bottle somedays as the tightness gets quite bad) and sickness and sore boobs all normal symptoms and i have done 3 pregnancy tests over the last 3 months all positive and my tummy is getting a little bigger already and my jeans are getting tight but i was just reading something about a blighted ovum which i never knew could happen and i have been reading a lot about it and i have just got myself so worked up and stressed that they are going to give me a scan and tell me there is nothing there and i am so scared. i have had no signs that anything could be wrong but from what i have read you don't need signs to know anything is wrong which worries me even more. i haven't had any blood tests yet as i am scared of needles but i don't think that would show up any problems anyway. i'm sorry i have just got myself so scared i really want everything to be ok this is my first pregnancy and it was planned i got pregnant after 3-4 months of trying so you'd think i would have read up on pregnancy but i didn't its only now i'm starting to and i'm scaring myself. is it normal to feel this way or am i just going crazy. the worst thing is i'm taking my boyfriend to the scan and he isn't the most supportive person in the world and i just don't know what i will do if its bad news. i have been looking forward to having a scan since i got pregnant i can't wait to see my baby and to think there may be nothing there after all this time really scares me. but i am such a baby i hate needles i hate pain i don't handle bad news well so all my family and friends can't understand why i wanted a baby because i am such a big baby myself.
