I'm 15 weeks pregnant and I'm petrified about baby being okay... I had my dating scan and everything was normal other than baby laying on its belly!!

I think I just need reassurance. Do you think I'm worrying too much?

Being pregnant is stressful but it sounds like your scans are perfect. That’s good news.

Worry is a part of parent life but if you are feeling like the worry is getting the best of you for most of the day, that’s not good and you should talk to your GP.

To help control worry I often suggest to have a ‘worry window’, a time set aside for 20 minutes or so, once per day, to let yourself worry. This way you get in the habit of pushing your worries aside for the most of the day.
