    I suffer from situational anxiety as it is. But, being pregnant is really bringing it on and I am trying my hardest to not let it get the best of me.

    Truth is, I am terrified. Not about being pregnant, having the baby or even being a mom. I am truly terrified that I will lose this baby. I do not know if this is normal, since I have never been pregnant before. I know a lot of hi has to do with the fact that we NEVER thought this would happen. We had tried for so long, it truly is a miracle to us. It is a blessing that I am truly grateful for. But the thing is, it seems too good to be true.

    My best friend is also pregnant and due Sept. 3rd. This is the 3rd time she has been pregnant. The other 2 ended in miscarriage. I think because of her situation I am terrified it can happen to me also. Both pregnancies are truly miracles, hers that she has carried in to her 2nd trimester and mine because I got pregnant at all.

    I have some health problems that also make it difficult for me and I really need to be careful. I have hypothyroidism and am insulin resistant, resulting from PCOS. I take medication for both and have read different info on taking these medications while pregnant.

    I hope most of the anxiety subsides tomorrow after my first doctor's visit (it's only a visit with the nurse though). I hope they will check the heartbeat and stuff to make sure it is strong...I really do not know what to expect.

    I am terrified to wipe when I go to the restroom for fear of blood...even though I know some spotting is normal.

    Ughhhh.....I just want to relax and enjoy this and not get so anxious!

    Did I mention I only have one and a half ovaries. I am glad they were working that day! :)

      Wow, I'm sorry to hear you are experiencing all of this anxiety & fear about your pregnancy. It seems reasonable though, given all of the background. Definitely make a list of questions & concerns to address at your first appointment - information can kill the anxiety in my experience.

        Im sorry your having so much anxiety and would actually probably be in the same situation you would be in if I were pregnant. I have anxiety issues. needless to say and with what you have seen from your friends, im sure your cant help but to worry.
        I know easy for me to say but everything happens for a reason, dont worry and everything will turn out!
