So incredibly anxious... Over what, I'm not sure?

This is my third pregnancy (1 miscarriage before our beautiful, healthy daughter). I'm not really sure the point of this post, maybe to vent, as I feel I don't want to keep burdening my husband and no one other than some colleagues know yet. For some reason, I'm so much more anxious this time round. I have my dating scan on Friday and I'm terrified, I almost want to cancel it. I've no reason to be this worried. I've had no bleeding/spotting. My boobs have been sore, I've had nausea and fatigue. I feel sick with anxiety to the pit of my stomach about whether everything will be ok. I can't focus on anything other than worrying. Is this normal? Any advice to alleviate it a little? Tia xx

I feel exactly the same. Scan also Friday, also had no bleeding or anything of concern. Every reason it should be okay but I’m going through some kind of existential crisis today kickstarted by “but what if I’m not pregnant anymore?” 🙃

I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling this way! But sorry you're also feeling this horrible anxiety, I don't want it to rob me of the joy of growing a human! Will think of you Friday! Hope goes well!
