Anxiety much?

This is my 4th pregnancy.With all my others I was so ill the first 12 weeks I was almost unable to function( nausea and vomiting).For the last 2 each time was worse and worse.This time I am having small bouts of nausea but nothing that even really stops me from continuing as normal.That alone has been causing me alot of worry.But I am finding that the anxiety this time is really bad.I have never worried about something going wrong before ( probably cause I was so sick and they say that is a good sign) but this time I worry about everything.I have an ultrasound on April 7th and I am so anxious about it.Thank goodness the SO is going with me.Anyone else dealing with major anxiety?

well it's easier said than done but try not to worry. each pregnancy is different. with my son, i had ZERO nausea. none. nada. and he is a very healthy and happy little boy. just because you don't have morning sickness doesn't necessarily mean you need to worry.

I am feeling really anxious too. I have had a cold for the last week so that might be masking some of the fatigue, but I have had basically no symptoms for the last week and it is freaking me out. The only thing I am getting is occasional mild cramping, other than that I don't really feel pregnant. Hopefully when I get over my cold I'll be more aware of what's going on with my body.

I have heard you get more m/s with a girl so I keep telling myself maybe it just means I'm having another boy. Smile I know I am still not very far along too, so I'm hoping more symptoms will kick in soon.

Everything makes me anxious.
Even having scans this time is making ,e anxious...the first trimester is more stressful then moving house!!!!
I just want it over so I know whether there is going to be a baby in my arms or not.

At least we all have each other to sound off at and to reassure us...I know you guys help me loads!!!

I AM A WRECK. TOTAL MESS. With my son who is 2.5 now, I remember having nausea (not really bad) for weeks off and on. My boobs were really sore and I was so tired it was unreal. When I had a m/c in October, my boobs were only slightly sore, no nausea no fatigue. This time, I had nausea for like 1.5 weeks and hardly nothing for the last 5-6 days. My boobs are not as sore as with my son, but sorer than October. My nipples are sore, not my boobs. I don;t know if I have been as tired as with my son. I have been sick for 4 weeks now, strep throat, sinus issues, now a cold. I had a n u/s at 5wk3days and the baby looked good and we saw and heard the heart beat. But now I am totally freaked since my nausea seems like it is gone. I don't have an appt until 4/11. And I know there will not be an ultrasound then. I am trying to not freak out, but it is so hard!!!

I hope everyone with anxiety is able to find some relief. Maybe warm baths, yoga, walks outside?
I know I get a bit paranoid at every, pain, lack of pain,feeling normal etc.Most of my friends had very mild symptoms and healthy pregnancies, I know that symptoms can vary even in the same person, different baby.
I have the opposite of anxiety, exhaustion and depression,lol!

I think I am getting some depression, too. I have been sick with strep, cold, sinus stuff for 4 weeks now. Now Stephen is getting sick...probably another ear infection.
