DEAR DEIDRE: MY boyfriend and I are thrilled that I’m seven weeks pregnant but I’m frightened I will have another miscarriage.
I’ve already been through it twice. The grief put a huge strain on our relationship. If it happens again I don’t know how we’ll cope as a couple. It makes me feel less of a woman each time.

My boyfriend is 23 and I’m 24.
I already feel like I’m miscarrying now, with the same sort of feelings that I had before.
But the doctor has reassured me I’m not.
I wake up panicking that I’m going to find I’m losing the baby.
What do I do?
DEIDRE SAYS: I know it is hard not to worry.
Keep checking out your fears with your doctor but also work on lowering these anxiety levels, which can only help during pregnancy.
My e-leaflet Self-help For Stress gives details.
And try the Miscarriage Association (miscarriageassociation.org.uk, 01924 200799).
