Anxious... Dee♡ Due August 22; 2 kids; 1 angel baby; .., IN, United States 6122 posts

I have my 12 week appointment tomorrow. I'm so anxious and scared I'll go in and something will be wrong. I don't "feel" pregnant, other than the occasional nausea/food aversions and fatigue. I'm barely bloated and only I can tell. Everyone else due around me has little "bumps" and actually looks pregnant. I've thought I've felt a few flutters here and there, but it's probably just gas. 


I don't know why I'm psyching myself out so much. I know none of that means there's something wrong. I just feel anxious. Maybe because it's the first appointment where we'll listen to the heartbeat. Idk. 

Did anyone else feel this way? How did you calm yourself beforehand?

Yes I thought that at every appointment just because of all the issues we have had just getting pregnant. But I am 16w now and have minimal symptoms..a little neasea and heartburn here and there but that's about it. I had my hubby with so it was reassuring for me to hear him say everything is ok.

Every time I get close to the next appointment, and it's been some time since my last, I start to worry some. It's natural.

Yeah, that I understand. And I had awfullll morning sickness for 2-3 weeks and then it suddenly just kind of disappeared. So I guess that worried me a little. I didn't think it was ever going to let up. DH is going tomorrow so I won't be alone either. He doesn't like to go to the ones where the dr is all up in my junk lol it makes him uncomfortable. This one is just bloodwork and a doppler reading.

DH doesn't have to look to be uncomfortable. It's just the thought of it. He doesn't like that another man has his face and hands down there lol he doesn't care for my Dr anyways though. He made a pretty rude comment about DH while he wasn't there at an appt. He asked if I was sure I didn't want an STD screening with my scheduled pap, because I wasn't the one he was worried about. DH has hated him since, with good reason.

Oh I don't blame him for that! That was just rude! I just have to tell my Dr that I've never had an abnormal one and he's good lol but did have one at 13w just cuz it had been 7 years lol hubby wasn't in room for that lol

Update!!!

Had my appt and everything is great! They also told me that according to my last u/s I'm 12 weeks 6 days, not 12 weeks 1 day. So my EDD is now January 6th. I got really nervous for a minute because he couldn't find the heartbeat, but he finally found it and it was beating strong at 162 bpm!!! My next appointment is July 27th and my anatomy scan is scheduled for August 18th. So excited!! Here's to the second tri!!
