Well i am pregnant, i am 10 weeks along and i am kind of freaked out about miscarriages. I have beeneating right for the most part, taking my prenatals like usual. I have no signs or symptoms of a miscarriage, everything seems to be going good, i am just very curious if i am past the percentage of not having the risk.
I have never had a miscarriage, i am excited, anxious and nervous. Is this normal for me to be feeling like this?
In the middle of the day it will hit me and i can barly keep my eyes open, but i am at work, so i can't take a quick nap. i am always in bed by 8:30pm at the latest and up by 6am but sometimes i find myself trying to fall asleep. Sometimes i can't get comfortable and the others i am waking up about 3-4 times to go pee. Ahh! and i can so tired.

Also, i don't have an appetite for anything, just salty stuff like pretzels. the food i loved before, just thinking about it make me grosed out. Kind of weird.
An i just thinking about it to much? do i have anything to worry about with the miscarriage?
i am 22. me and my fiance' are very very very excited & can't wait till the day he/she comes out! please help me out and relieve my mind! :)

Congratulations on the little bundle on the way!
I think it is normal to feel a sense of fear about miscarriages when you are pregnant, especially during your first trimester. Many women, including myself, will not even tell anyone they're pregnant until they're past that first trimester milestone and you are only a couple of weeks away from reaching it :-)

Have you been seen by your doctor to reassure you that everything is okay? Oftentimes hearing our babies heart beat can certainly put our minds to rest. It is important to realize that the majority of miscarriages occur on their own and have absolutely nothing to do with your eating habits, how you sleep, walk, talk, move, etc. Unless you are actively putting yourself at a risk for miscarriage-- there is nothing you can do to prevent or cause it so just try to live as normal as possible while remembering that there are certain things you shouldn't do (such as heavy lifting).

Try to relax. Once you get past the first trimester the chances of having a miscarriage significantly decrease. Enjoy your pregnancy, there is no need to cause stress on the baby when he or she is happily enjoying their cozy warm home for the next 9 months.
