I am new to discussion forums, but not sure where else to turn. I have had 2 m/c in 2010, we waited a year and made some changes before trying again. Now I pregnant, 6 weeks tomorrow (we think). My m/c's have been right around this time in the past. I have an u/s on Friday and today I cant stop crying at work. I am so nervous to go in on Friday and see the same picture on the screen. Doing my best to think positively, but struggling....adivce?
I don't really have any advice, but I wanted to say you are not alone! I had my u/s last Thursday and was so anxious in the days leading up to. I must have burst into tears about four times while I was getting ready that morning. It was such an odd mix of emotions, I almost didn't want to go. Like you, I was terrified of seeing the same picture on the screen. Thankfully, we saw a perfect little baby with a heart beat of 136 bpm. I am measuring a week behind where I thought I'd be (per u/s I am 7w today, thought I was , but my OB says everything looks great.
I don't know that there is a way to curb the anxiety, you just have to breathe and pray.
Good luck to you. And please keep us updated on your results Friday. I'll be thinking about you!
