By my records I will be 6 weeks pregnant this Thursday. Time feels like it’s standing still! I’ve been pretty chilled the past few days and trying to look after myself with good food and plenty of rest. I’m definitely feeling extra tired these days and my boobs are a lot more sore and bigger (hubby is very excited).
I’ve booked in to have my scan on Thursday 5 May which will be the 7 week mark all things going to plan. But I can’t help but wonder and worry, is everything going to be alright?!!
My doctor is super-chilled about everything which is great and terrible depending on how you look at it. I’m about 1000 times more concerned about this pregnancy than the last and yet he’s not keeping a closer eye on me than previously.
Maybe I’m worrying unnecessarily but i don’t have any morning sickness yet and I’ve found a lot of articles that say morning sickness is a positive sign for pregnancy. I even found this US study that says “miscarriage risk was increased nearly 12-fold for women 35 and older with no morning sickness.”
Now I cannot stop worrying. I had no morning sickness last time and look how well that turned out.
So now I wait and worry and wait until next week’s appointment. And the Saturday after the appointment I also have my husband’s brother’s wedding. So if it all goes worst case scenario I’m only going to have a day to get myself together before I have to pretend everything is super fantastic.
Please someone tell me it’s going to be ok.
