I am only a little over 5 weeks pregnant. It was unexpected but my boyfriend and I are SO excited. I am feeling really nervous and with every little cramp I get freaked out. I feel like every bad thing that could happen, is going to happen to me. My mom had a miscarriage before she had me but other than that she had 3 healthy babies. I am 21, healthy and I am taking my pre-natals religiously. I have been having period like cramps. They are the kind that you get a day or two before you start your period, but nothing too terrible and no bleeding. I have heard that they are normal but I can't help being nervous.
I watched the movie "Marley and Me" a few weeks ago. If anyone has ever watched that movie, it scared me. When she finds out that she had a miscarriage. I am terrified that I am going to go into my first ultrasound at 8 weeks and they are going to tell me "there is nothing in there, we're sorry." Does anyone else get this? Maybe I am just being crazy. I hate being like this, I don't want to spend my whole pregnancy worried that something is going to happen or worried about eating the wrong food. I read that you can't eat lunch meat, so I stopped eating it, my boyfriend probably thinks I've gone insane. I don't think I will calm down until the baby is here because I have heard horror stories about a week before the due date something goes wrong!!
Any advice? Someone help!!
