Pregnant after a Loss

So anxious I can't sit still

Hello everyone,

I found out I was pregnant last week, after suffering an ectopic pregnancy 9 months ago. My first doctors appointment is one week away. Last week I was suprisingly calm and happy and this week I am freaking out. I am so anxious I can't sit still at work, my stomach hurts, I can't focus on anything and I am terrified I am hurting my baby by worrying so much..but that just makes me worry more. I keep telling myself that I am pregnant today and to be happy..but I am having a really hard time. Any advice?

 Thanks everyone! You are all such a great help!

  • Congrats and welcome! It's totally normal to feel anxious, but you aren't doing any harm to your baby by worrying. I found that keeping really busy helped with my anxiety in the first trimester, and did lots of stuff to distract myself. Just take it one day at a time.
