First OB appointment / Mega Worries and Scared

Hi, I'm 33 y/o and 10wks 3 days (unless I find out diff. today) I have my first OB apptmt to hear baby heartbeat and get and sonogram... For some reason I'm terrified that the baby won't be moving or that there will be no heartbeat.. Is this a normal fear?
stefms21 responded:
of course it is normal, welcome to parenthood. you will worry until you hear the heartbeat then be relieved for a week until you start worrying about feeling them move, then be relieved for awhile until you start worrying about them coming out. This is only the beginning of the worry, just enjoy hearing your babies heartbeat. Good luck today!

Oh, and don't forget the "if you weren't emotional b4, you will be now!" I always wondered why my mother was so emotional about things then I just thought maybe I'm just too much of a hard ass....After DD was born....I turned into my mother!! lol
jessiekz replied to stefms21's response:
well I just responded with a long heartfelt message to say it hadn't gone through! Long story short, they could detect no heartbeat or movement and though I'm ten weeks they measured the sac and baby at 8.... meaning development may have stopped there.. I'm scheduled for a second sonogram on Tuesday but the Dr. and Tech were wonderful and understand and cried with me. The percentages are not on our (mine and babies) side... 1-2%.
