The Anxiety!!!

The anxiety is killing me!! Today is Monday and our first 9 week appointment is on Wednesday and I have not been able to sleep for the past two nights! I wake up every single hour, just hoping that when I pick up my phone, it'll show me at least 7:00am...but that hasn't been happening too often.

While I am beyond excited to finally get to tell our family and friends (and the social media world) the amazing news, that just isn't the anxiety I am feeling right now. And it is killing me!

Once I see that little heartbeat, all of my nerves will be relieved and a HUGE weight will be lifted off of my shoulders. There are far too many stories I have read where expecting moms go in for their first appointment, only to find no heartbeat at all. I know, I know. I definitely should stay away from the internet for the next couple of days, but that seems like such an impossible task!

All I can do is pray and wait until 8:30am when I get to see my little munchkin for the first time!

Have any other mommies to be felt this same way? Does it continue through pregnancy or will this anxiety finally subside (at least a little bit) after Wednesday??
