I wish I had some magic words to make you feel better. I guess just knowing you are NOT alone and the fear is not silly.... it's very real might help. I think most of it have felt it our entire pregnancies.

I think what has worked the best for me is when I get in that funk.... to look in the mirror and keep saying "this baby is going to be okay.....I WILL hold this baby at the end of those 9 months" Look yourself right in the eyes and don't stop until you believe those words. It doesn't matter how hard you cry.... it actually made me feel better to get all those fears out through tears while I was alone.

I still fear something will go wrong...and I am a week away from my EDD. The fear is always there for me and I wish I didn't have this wall up when it comes to loving this child too much, but I can't help it. I love him soooo much but not with my entire being yet. If that makes sense. I know once I hear him cry and hold him those feelings will kick in, but right now I am still afraid.

I just want you to know you aren't alone and we all understand.
