SCARED & VERY WORRIED NEWBIE !
Hi everyone....Im very glad I found this site. Im 42 and approx 7 weeks pregnant. Very , very worried, very stressed - pregnancy was a total shock as we'd given up on ever having a child after 5 years of trying . That aside had a scan last week as I had pain in my side ( hospital thought it was ectopic, but later diagnosed as grumbling appendix ! ) - scan seemed to be approx 6/7 weeks , but im worried as ive only had very intermittent and mild sickness ( or rather only nausea) , mildly sore boobs for about 3 weeks , terrible constipation & headaches on and off, but the last few days apart from chronic tiredness I don't feel anything - no nausea , no soreness, no headaches...im so worried im going to miscarry ( partly because of my age ) are there pther women like this ...am I normal ??... ....also under awful stress in other ways which I won't go into, and on top of that I have Multiple Sclerosis , so am in constant pain as i've had to stop taking all my medication.....am I trying to hard to look for symptoms ? - or as they were so mild in the first place is this normal. ?I got pregnant about 12 years ago, and had virtually no symptoms then - but I had a termination, and spent the whole time preceeding it in denial .... My Mum and sister don't live anywhere near me , and I don't really have any female friends here where I live as we haven't been here long, so I feel very isolated and scared and worried... I Keep bursting into tears all the time and I can;t seem to focus on anything properly - I feel really depressed and worried . I have to go for another scan on Friday, but I think i've just convinced myself I won't carry this baby to term..... I just feel so sad.....but any helpful advice would be warmly received ! ( and if you've read to the end of this whingy post, thank you for hanging in there ! )
