    Hi guys,

    I don't know whether anyone read my post when i suffered a missed miscarriage last year but i am now 8 and a half weeks pregnant and am absolutely terrified of my scan! I got the date through last week as being 6 March and i just cried, all i can think is it's going to be the same again and the sac will be empty. I know worrying wont help and i'm trying to be positive as this one seems different (last time no symptoms this time feel sick every day). I keep having dreams about it and i'm driving myself and my OH crazy.

    Just wanted to offload, wishing everyone the best!

    lots of love
    Claire xx

    Claire it is totally normal hunny

    I made myself sick with worry when i was expecting my first after two m/c's convinced there would be nothing there.

    I just hope March 8 comes around really quickly for you and you get the good news, after that you will find a massive weight been lifted off your shoulders.

    If you ever want to talk, pm me

    Lots of Love

    Congratulations on your pregnancy Claire, and yes, you are being totally normal by worrying.

    Us mums that are lucky enough never to have suffered with the devestation of a m/c still worry ourselves sick. I can only begin to imagine what it is like when you have already suffered this heartache.

    I had my dating scan early (9wks 6days), so now am spending each day worrying that I had the scan too early and the little bean has stopped growing since. My sickness disappeared around the same time as my scan so doubly worrying. I just have to keep reminding myself that the sore boobs, ever-expanding waistline and sheer exhaustion are good signs and that everything is okay.

    I know it seems an age away, but 6th March is not long to wait, and in the meantime, we are all here for you.

    Hi Claire,

    We all worry so much, I don't know anyone who says they don't regardless of their history.

    Like you I had a m/c last year - it was my 3rd so when i got pregnant again I just burst into tears with worry... it was awful that I could not be excited .. just scared!! My Oh doesn't really understand but it is very natural for us to be anxious.. especially when our losses were so recent.

    Like Tankett and Mummysian said.. you will soon be reassured and don't worry too much about symptoms as they can come and go each day- I too felt more nauseas and tired this time and fortunately I was having regular scans due to being seen by the recurrent m/c specialist at my local hospital so I was seen regularly and had lots of scans.. I would go in there every week completely convinced my little Bod was not going to be oK and then would just cry when saw it on the screen !!!

    Soon you will be smiling so much when you see your little bean on the screen waving at you!! It will be fine.. and in the meantime we are here to help you get through the wait!!!

    Hi although I have not m/c I still am having all the worries you are. My scan is on the 7th March so we can share our worries together if you like (no matter how small). Dont know about you but I am counting down the days till my scan 15 days left for me! Mine is an early morning appointment which I am happy about saves me going to work and waiting for the day to drag by. x

    hi claire. i had a missed m/c last year aswell and im now 8 weeks! i totally understand your worry. my problem is that the m/c we suffered was not detected until the first scan and up until then we had no idea so like you im having a stressfull time. i keep on feeling my tummy to see if it has gone hard and im trying to hard to look for my symptoms of pregnancy as im so scared the same thing will happen. im seeing my midwife on wednesday and im going to beg for an early scan! i just can not stand the heart ache of going for a 12 week scan to find out if all is well. i keep on telling myself that the chances of having that sort of m/c again must be really small so therefore all must be ok! keep in touch with me so we can support each other over these next few weeks.

    take care
