19 weeks pregnant and scared something is wrong.

I am 19 and a half weeks pregnant and waiting for my ultrasound which is in 4 days. I came down with what I think is a cold a couple of days ago - sore throat, runny nose, plugged ears. The last couple of days I've been having a lot of anxiety which has made me question whether there is something wrong with the pregnancy. I was pregnant 7 years ago and lost the baby at 12 weeks to chromosomal adnormalities. I gained a lot of weight in the course of these 7 years and went through a stage of infertility due to weight gain. Amazingly I got pregnant which came as a complete shock! I had bleeding at 10 weeks 4 days and went to the hospital. They did an ultrasound a couple of days later and turned out everything was normal. At my last doctors appointment they told me my last urine sample turned back with protein in it and so I did another urine sample and turned out I had a bladder infection. I took the prescribed medication as indicated and still felt like I had a bladder infection. I called the doctor yesterday and am going to do a urine sample at the lab in my town. I started getting some light cramping like when you are getting your period and I have some low back pain (also similar to that when getting your period). I could have swore I felt the baby move last night but I don't know if maybe my mind is playing tricks on me hoping that everything is ok. I called the OB today (who is located 1 1/2 hours away) and they have a system where I can only leave a message and they get back to me. It's now been a couple hours and have not heard anything. Do you think I'm worrying way too much or could something be wrong?

If you do still have a bladder infection or a urinary tract infection then you do need to get it sorted out ASAP. Im not trying to scare you but with these infections, comes the discomfort, fever and can also trigger premature labour. Please get it sorted out so you and the baby are healthy :)

Thanks Kaitlin, I really do appreciate the response. I can't believe how much of a nervous wreck I've become but I find the waiting in between appointments is the hardest and the closer I get to the appointment, the more nervous I am. I really do hope everything will be ok :S

I think you're worrying a normal amount! Our hormones drive us bananas and we worry about our child all the time! I think cramping and back pain around now is normal- baby is starting to get big! Eat some chocolate and try not to worry (impossible, I know). If you start bleeding, go in to your ER, but otherwise, I think you're doing everything right.
