    P.S. It is ENTIRELY normal to have worries (ranging from silly to totally major) when you are pregnant. Especially if you are a first-time mum. Honestly, read what you can in the pregnancy books and see a doctor if you are concerned.

    Thanks for all of your replies - they were really helpful. It wasn't the answer that jools gave that upset me, but rather the manner in which it was given which I felt was rather insensitive. But then again, my hormones are a-ragin, but perhaps I was feeling extra sensitive.

    PS - I am with Dr Dawkins and he charges 900 per session + 900 for the u/s so 1800 in total per visit.

    Does Dr Dawkins charge you $1800 every visit?

    Even though he does an ultrasound at every visit he only charges me extra for the 12, and 20 week scans.

    So if you need to go in for an extra visit if you feel something is wrong should only cost $900.

    I know it's difficult, but it would be much better for your baby if you could relax a little.
    Maybe it would be reassuring for you if you went to the bookstore and found a pregnancy book that could reassure you what is normal and what you should worry about.

    I'm pretty sure that I am charged 900+900 per visit with Dr D!!! Wow, if you are not, then I will be sure to take this up with him on my next visit this coming Friday! Thanks for letting me know, Matty. His price board says 900 per consultation + 900 per u/s, so I just assumed that I was being charged the correct amount.

    Re "The Worries", I get them every now and again but in general I am really not the worrying sort. Once in a while during this pregnancy I've had a thought that's led to another thought that's led to... you know how it goes. In general though, I am happy and excited. Nervous yes but excited even more.

    Took me 8 months to get pregnant (I had some ovulation issues that were not so easily addressed) so now that I am finally, I guess I'm just super careful about signs and symptoms and resolving a potential problem before it gets out of hand.

    I've got PLENTY of books, but thanks! I think reading those books is what tends to make me paranoid. I mean seriously, isn't "What to Expect..." just a 600 page bible of things pregnant mothers are NOT supposed to do? That's why I enjoy this forum - I think sharing ideas with REAL WOMEN is more informative that reading theoretical info out of a text book.

    Thanks again for all your replies. It does help me with my jitters. And it helps to know that it's normal to worry.

    Btw, I don't actually feel that anything is wrong. Actually, I feel wonderful and very healthy and all my checkups to date have been perfect. I guess my posting was only to ask if anyone knew of any warning signs that women should be looking for in the 2nd trimester, in order to prevent a potential problem before it becomes a problem.

    I should stop surfing the Internet and making myself paranoid when there is no reason to be. Guess I've always believed in "an ounce of prevention..."

    Dear Clowe,
    I really didn't mean to cause any upset, believe me I would be the last person in the world who would wish to offend anyone.

    With what my little family is going through at the moment, my youngest child has just been diagnosed with a chronic life long illness, I was just trying to say that when your worried about something medical then the best thing to do to put your mind at rest was to ask someone with medical training. I too have surfed the internet about my son's condition and I agree there are things on there that have absolutely scared me to death. I have got myself worked up on several occasions and for me the only relief was to talk to a professional who could put things in perspective and that was the idea that I was trying to get across. I'm sorry if you felt my tone was offensive, this was never my intension. Being a parent is worrying full stop and I agree this starts before the little angel has even made an appearance.

    Good luck with your pregnancy and with the birth of your little angel.
