So I'm only 22 weeks, but at this time I'm usually beginning to have trouble with my pregnancies, and have been in the hospital at least once already!

Last night/wee hours in the A.M. I felt the WORST stomach pains, but turned out to be a TMI issue... but now I'm so freaked out that this pregnancy will be just like the rest and I just started to get excited about it.

Any anxiety relieving suggestions?

I wish I had some better ones than just deep breathing and talking it through with other moms who get it, but that's all that's worked for me so far. I will say this: acknowledging the anxiety to the people around me helped me to manage it a little better--it gave me the ability to give myself space to work through the emotions a bit. But I won't lie, when I got to 27 weeks, when Jim was born, I was a MESS emotionally. I felt a bit better after passing that milestone, and as the weeks go on (I'm at 30 now), it does get a little bit easier. But anytime I have a hiccup health-wise, I go back into terror/panic mode.

I'm so sorry that this time is so hard for you. I agree with Beth that talking about might really help. Keep the DR on speed dial and listen closely to your body.
