gosh my anxiety got so bad during post partum
I had my last baby last year at 43years old she’s perfectly healthy
Take a deep breath momma and look at the picture of your little peanut, everything is alright!🥰
I’m sorry you went through that! I pray no mommy endures that. Keeping you in my prayers ❤️
I’m so sorry you went through that. I resonate and have been there. I have bad anxiety and the nurse practitioner asks if I want to get on anti-anxiety meds and I say no. I think some nervousness is normal and you def aren’t alone in your experience. Wishing you and your baby the best!
I’m so sorry you had to go through that. I had a difficult pregnancy as well and delivery and this is my rainbow baby so I totally get it I’d be the same way! The baby feels as you do so try to focus on their heartbeat growing inside of YOU :)
It would be , i would of lost it to Given my age im 39 now but was 37 at the time i had to be very carful and panicked at every apt. They didnt help ( the drs) Try not to stress. I have a aswome happy little boy.
Sending love ❤❤❤ everything will be ok so happy it was all fine x x
Aw, so happy for you! 🥰
This happened while I was literally in active labor. I was so scared til they attached a thing to the baby through my vaj and finally we could hear her. I was like 😳 (Miscarried before so whole pregnancy had me assuming the worst every time something seemed off)
I’ll never forget the moment they told me they couldn’t find a heartbeat. Even though I knew it was probably going to happen, I was destroyed. That was April, I’m pregnant again, but thinking about that moment still breaks me.
@Peace N Yeah the ultrasound tech just said "Nope" to me. Not a great way to hear that news.
Aw mama! Isn’t that the worst when that weight is on your shoulders? It’s almost like you feel responsible for literally anything that could happen to your baby. Ugh it’s so hard! Been there done that! Deep breathes your doing great mama!!!🥰🥰🥰🥰
Sounds like what I went through. I have now and had really bad during pregnancy anxiety.
That is an extremely overwhelming situation. Give yourself time to feel whatever you need to feel! ❤️
You are not alone! I would have cried too! And I would probably still cry about it months later. It's traumatic!

Awww bless you, I'm so chuffed they found the little beating summersault lol sounds like Ur gunna have Ur hands full.... 💞
Your story sounds like something I just experienced!! Heard baby’s heartbeat at 8 weeks VERY easily and then went in for 10 week and they went to listen for it and couldn’t find it....the nurse practitioner continued to have a 15-20 min convo with me while they were waiting to roll in an ultrasound machine that was currently in use. After trying to concentrate on what she was saying and just dying inside she got the machine on me after what felt like an actual lifetime and after like 2 mins with the machine she finally was like “baby is all curled up and your bladder is so full that it was pushing your uterus down” and they FINALLY found the flicker and FINALLY heartbeat (160 bpm). I could have just died. Everything is so fragile in there I’m just constantly worried. I see these women have full term babies and I’m like.....that’s an EFFING MIRACLE.
Im 17 weeks with my first. Ive been a ball of anxiety this whole entire time. A friends of mine suggested buying my own fetal doppler for home so whenever i feel nervous and anxious i can try and find baby's heart beat. I havnt had any luck finding it but my fiance has no problem when he uses the doppler on my stomach. Sending you SO much love ❤❤❤❤❤❤
Love to you and your baby.
I believe your baby is alive.
I am pregnant with my 3rd and I have noticed how my anxiety is very intense. I was having spotting and worried something wasn't okay. I was also having sharp pains all is well. Haven't been seen. It's hard expecting during a pandemic.
Pregnancy can be scary and traumatic. I go through the worrying and anxiety too. I actually felt the same way at my 12 week check up. No heartbeat then they did an ultrasound and my little guy was flipping around too. Finally got the heartbeat at 170. I had to laugh to myself because I couldn’t believe how much he was moving and hopping around in there! I had a sigh of relief but was a bit shaky driving home after the appointment. Just try to take it one day at a time but I do understand where you are coming from❤️
Had my 13 week doctor appointment today and they had such a hard time finding the heartbeat. They almost had to do an ultrasound for me too but then they found it at 150bpm. I was so nervous the entire time! It is scary! We just want the little ones to be okay.
Sending sooooooo much love ❤️ right now. Gratitude, relief and celebratory energy 🙏🏿 for you and your family.
Thank goodness, I'm so glad they managed to find your babies heartbeat Jeannine 👏👏👏. I know that that feeling of just wanting to hear those words 'there is the heartbeat'. I screamed with excitement when I went for an early pregnancy scan and told me this sentence. Hearing I can see the babies heartbeat made me feel so at ease.
So happy for you!! With my baby girl, I could barely breathe at the first few scans. I saw her heart beat and movement & lost it (from relief and wonder). But, I still continued to have crippling anxiety the whole pregnancy-every scan, days she moved a little less, etc. But hearing that heartbeat was truly one of the greatest moments of my life. I even got an at home Doppler to listen to her everyday! And I would hold my breath and think what a miracle it was every time I heard her. Pregnancy anxiety is a true real thing that I wish there was a support group for or a way to talk to other mothers about it. When I had it, lots of people treated me like it was very bizarre and rare and that I should just be glowing and loving every moment. That’s not the case with everyone, and we should have resources for the fear/anxiety!
Didn’t hear my babies heartbeat until 18 weeks! He’s a wriggler and often keeps us on our toes when the midwife tries to monitor the heartbeat! You never stop worrying as a parent x
You're not alone. I'd be the same way. I am on my 2nd. Haven't heard the heartbeat yet I am going on 13 weeks.
I was told up to 17-20 weeks sometimes the Doppler doesn’t pick it up. My first ob ussed to do an ultrasound at every appt and never even touched the doppler. She said it’s not worth the fear.
I can’t even imagine, thank goodness all was okay 🙏 . Yes it’s okay to let it out & be kind to yourself, you are embarking on the most beautiful & hardest yet rewarding thing in the world. Bless you & your baby!

Hey don’t panic I had the same issue They couldn’t find my baby’s heartbeat on my first scan and then they did it again same day and they could find it at 12 weeks or even 14 weeks sometimes it’s hard to hear it clearly So at around 16 weeks shouldn’t be any problems don’t worry My baby is here and healthy x
So relieved for you mama! Maybe baby had his/her back turned and that’s why they couldn’t hear it. I’m so glad baby is healthy!! Now, go relax and enjoy yourself! Treat yourself to something nice! ❤️
In the UK, we don’t tend to try to hear the heartbeat until 16 weeks as it can be so hard to hear and gives false negative feelings 🤍
Omg that's so long to wait!!!
Hi Jeannine, I'm so sorry you had to go through that, I can imagine the panic thay you felt while waiting those 10minutes. Its okay to be emotional and to let it all out, I am both thrilled & relieved for you that all is fine and sending you a giant hug, Xxx
I pushed her out fast too ended up with a 2nd degree tear lol and that thing left a nasty bump on her neck. They missed her head. And thank goodness cause if it left that on her neck I can only imagine what it would’ve done to her head.
