A sneaky wee 6 week scan !!!!

I had a check up today regading my OHSS and the decided to give me a cheeky wee scan.......Im having TWINS !!!! We cant believe it, we are absolutely ecstatic.
We couldnt see too much on the screen as it wasnt the proper monitor, it was an older one used to scan ovaries. But there were 2sacs and we could see little blobs and the odd little flicker which she said was the start of a little heartbeat, she was sure. We are dead on 6 weeks and have to go back in 2 weeks for another scan. We are so excited and so so pleased !!
TWINS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does the worry go away ??

Im 5 + 6 weeks pregnant. I have 2 embies on board and my scan isnt until 8 weeks pregnant.
Everywhere i read im reading about miscarriage and no heartbeat by the time ladies get to their scans, it just seems to be everywhere. I joined the february birthboard on a baby website and almost every single post was bad news, my heart goes out to these poor ladies, but im really in no frame of mind to keep reading about it all and ended up removing myself from my birth club. My symptoms are still present, i have sore achy boobs, im tired and sleeping for hours in the afternoons, and the usual crampy pains that everyone talks about early pregnancy. I cant touch sweet stuff, its turning my stomach and i can smell things from miles away haha.
Im still swollen from OHSS and moving about is slow and i think its maybe getting me down a bit. Im desperate to just be full of excitement, and while im excited and grateful i remember that im still early and get filled with nerves.
Is this normal do you think ?? Given what we all have to go through im thinking it probably is, and having to wait 4 weeks from my positive test to have a scan its bound to heighten the nerves.
When does the worry stop ??
