Hey everyone...so I've been posting way less because frankly I'm getting depressed and I kind of need some support. I'm just so scared for this pregnancy. I'm throwing up but I still worry something is going to happen and I feel like I'm mentally preparing myself already for the worst. I,have a super vivid imagination so it doesn't help and ny mother had a molar once as her first and my u/s didn't have anything just a sac when I went in a while ago so I'm just feeling so down sorry to be mopey.
Excuse me if my typing is bad There's probably a baby in my arms.
Sometimes just getting it out in writing or in words can help or begin to move you in the right direction. There are a lot of things good and bad that can happen, and I think that being on a board like this can be a double-edged sword.. it's great for reassurance but it can also bring ideas and fears to the forefront. I hope that you start to feel better as time goes on and you get more reassurance from the doctors. I think you should look into some counseling though, to speak with someone in person to try and get in front of your feelings. Good luck to you! I felt depressed last year and speaking to a therapist really helped me sort out my feelings and move me in the right direction.
I have no good advice, I'm sorry. :-( But I know how you feel. Worrying is the worst part of pregnancy.
With my pregnancy with my DD, I was giving myself hives from worrying so much. It was awful. I don't know how I stopped worrying.. I just did one day. Like... there isn't much about this process I can control, so what's the point in worrying? Eat healthy, do the right stuff... everything else is up to God/fate/chance/luck/chaos. So live your life, acknowledge the worries and fears, but don't dwell on them. Like soul_donut said, maybe writing it down will help you list out your fears.
I can understand how you feel, and it's perfectly normal. We are here to lean on and if you do continue to feel this way or feel worse, I would consider talking to a professional, as Melissa suggested. I really hope you can start feeling more positive.
I'm sorry you are having a tough time I was very worried about my pregnancy for about a week due to a lack of symptoms. I still don't have very many symptoms, but I was literally driving myself crazy worrying and one day I just told myself, there's nothing I can control about this situation and what is meant to be will be, so I've stopped the worrying. I feel much happier about it now!
If you can't control the way you feel, you may want to talk to someone about it. Sending you lots of positive thoughts!!!
