Anxiety Over Pregnancy

Recommended Posts

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.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
