I’m scared

Tomorrow (Wednesday) is our anatomical u/s and all I can think about is how awful it would be if things didn’t look good. Hubby is absolutely giddy at the thought of finally knowing the sex of our child but all I can think about is how awful it will be if something isn’t right. I have no reason to think anything is wrong – other than some early bleeding, the pregnancy has been great with the baby measuring just right at every stage. The closer I get to the appointment the more scared I get.

I wish the fear would ease up at some point, but I know too much about all that can go wrong to ever really relax. Too many terrible things have happened to my friends IRL and in the IF community for me to believe that a healthy child is ever a sure thing.

I saw your comment on Mel's blog and thought I'd stop by. Try not to stress about the exam, I know that is easier said than done. Just enjoy it.

For me, finding out the gender was such a relief and helped me relax more throughout the rest of my pregnancy. Good luck!

I came over from the lushary. I think it is normal to feel this way. I was up all night going crazy the day before my big u/s. Doesn't help that at this point movement can be inconsistent does it? I will be thinking of you and your litttle one.

Good luck with the scan today. I hope it goes smoothly and you can bond even more with the little one growing inside of you.

I can't wait to hear all about it! XOXO
