Getting over my fear
Posted 02 March 2010 - 06:11 PM
Ladies I need the strengh not to ask for a scan or hear the heartbeat at my appointment with obs tomorrow. I saw bub a week ago and it was fine.....
Help me find the strengh....!!

Start small with baby steps....say no to the scan tomorrow, and then see if you can say no to the doppler next time.
You are doing a great job of being a Mummy to Be

Enjoy it. Its a wonderful sound to hear especially at the stage you are at and still can't believe there is a little being inside. Once you start feeling bubba kick you will relax a bit more because you will have that constant reassurance. Good luck tomorrow.

Thankfully now I have the added reassurance of feeling this little tyke move around inside of me, but you can bet your bottom dollar that when I have my next appointment that I will be listening advidly for that precious heartbeat sound.
Try not to stress your self further by stressing that you are stressing too much

I know fears are natural but the idea of this baby not being in my arms in August due to something going wrong would kill me.

As for the heartbeat, at each OB appointment they've checked. The last 2 have been tricky trying to find it but that is because I have an anterior placenta and also bubs is a squirmer.
It's natural to worry - but don't let it override the exerience of being pregnant.

All I can say is have the strength not to go outside of these appointments unless you really feel there is foundation to it and then its not about giving in to the fear/anxiety its about getting the reassurance you need to keep going. you are doing so well, you came here and you yourself said that you didn't need more - bub was okay a week ago. So clearly you are going okay with the anxiety honey.

So happy for you!! Your story and your strengh and all you anxieties you had give me hope and reassureance then smallest is going to be just as amazing as Angus!

If it reduces your anxiety and your obs is happy for you to have the frequent scans and heartbeat checks I would go with it Stress is not good for bubs (god knows how Emily came out in one piece!!!) so if it relaxes you then it's fine!
I am assuming you are still seeing your psych?? Are you talking through your anxiety that things won't be OK? I felt exactly the same way but didn't realise or seek help and things just snowballed after Emily's birth and for the first 18 months so as long as you are still seeking the support that you need from the professionals I don't think it's worth beating yourself up about not asking for heartbeat checks
Glad everything is OK!!!
