So sorry to unload here, but hoping it helps with some of the anxiety I am feeling. I have been extremely paranoid this pregnancy and have no idea why. Well just as one ailment is explained another pops up. I was feeling pretty good about everything after Thursday when I met with the MFM. I came home and the next day I came across a story about a woman who was pregnant and had Melonoma. Not sure if I should have read that or not. Now I am scared ****less. Its consuming me. I have many moles and always have. I have 2 bigger ones which I have had as long as I can remember, don't really think they have changes, but am not sure about the one on my back. It itched during my first tri, but stopped after a week, so I forgot about it. I decided to google and that topped my anxiety to a whole new level. now I have been analyzing every single blemish and am scared. I have an apt with my family doc tomorrow because the derm was 7 months out! I hope it goes well and if you pray, please pray for me. I want to be able to watch my kids grow up! I had no sleep Friday night due to the anxiety and I slept better last night due to exhaustion so not sure how tonight will go. I hate myself for not monitoring them sooner...

``Thanks to you all! I went to my family doc to have a look over. The 2 I thought were scary, he said were fine! I was shocked. My family does tend to be pretty moley. I had him check some others and all appeared fine, even the red little ones that have popped up this pregnancy. He did say I have an atypical mole that looked fine but as a precaution after baby girl is born we will take off. Fine by me not scared at all about that because if I could I would take them all off,lol.

As far as the anxiety goes, I did mention it, as hard as it was because of feeling a bit embarrassed. He mentioned medication was probably not a good idea, but maybe some counseling would help. However our plan does not cover this I just found out, so that stinks. I have made a promise to not google anything medical, because that's where I start getting freaked. I will call a professional or come on here and ask you lovely ladies A lot of this paranoia I think stems from the way my pregnancy started and the fact this one has been so different than my others. About a week or so before I found out I was pregnant my Aunt was dx'd with pancreatic cancer and this was also the same week my oldest has emergency appendectomy surgery. I was very shocked to learn I was pregnant through the stress!

It didn't help that at first they couldn't find baby and then watched my hcg levels rise very rapidly and thinking multiples and ectopic and a bunch of other stuff. Then the hyperemesis kicked in during the 4th week and there has been one issue after another. I just want a mellow stress free pregnancy and am going to try and enjoy whats left of it. Thanks for listening to me and I think I may take a nap to catch up on sleep before kids come home.

Aww! Try not to jump to any conclusions before you see your doctor and get any test results (if you need them). I'll bet you are fine. Your skin goes through a lot of changes during pregnancy. Just try and take a deep breath and don't make yourself crazy over something that could be nothing. Hugs!

Ahhh... you need to stay away from Dr. Google. You could literally talk yourself into any deathly illness based on stories.

I just went for my annual dermatology check (redhead, lots of freckles and moles) and all's good. It's reassuring. Just go get checked They basically check every inch of your body and know what they are looking for.

I wouldn't look anything else up on the internet. Your docs will let you know if there's anything you should be concerned about in your pregnancy and health, and it sounds like all's good!

You may want to mention that paranoia to your doc, perhaps it is more anxiety and that can be a chemical imbalance that can easily be treated with some minor meds. It's quite common and nothing to worry about if you are getting treated for it. It may make all of the paranoias go completely away and you can actually rest easy!

(((((Sweetie))))) I agree to just.stay.away. I speak from experience, as I just can't read some things without my mind going berserk, so I've learned to just not allow myself to go there at all~and IT WORKS!

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"
