I have been a hormonal crazy nut most the day today, I'm stressed about everything and i don't want to be...I've been the biggest BEEP in the world today, and now I have a severe tummy ache which makes me worried that me stressing could cause something bad to happen.

Try to take a warm bath or shower and relax. Deep breaths. The past does not dictate the future . Try and lay down, watch something funny (nothing sad) and distract yourself. It will help you to not concentrate on the pregnancy. I am sorry you are feeling so stressed. Its so hard with PAL.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

I can certainly relate. As you know, my baby had the same diagnosis as your baby and so really feel stressed at times with this pregnancy.

I have opted out of testing because I feel that it just happened. I have 3 healthy children and my Dr felt we weren't carriers due to that. I have been very fortunate that I have had quite a few scans already and baby looks great and Dr said he didnt see any fluid behind the baby's neck.

We go back in a week for another scan. I've also felt very different about this pregnancy. With Elijah, I felt from the day I got my positive, something wasn't quite write. It's been a long 13 weeks but I've just tried to keep my faith in God strong and that is what has got me through.

You will get through too hun
Thank you Claire1979 for my beautiful siggy!

Maybe that is a good sign Pamela, I have felt very differant about this pregnancy then the last I almost even bought an outfit the other day. The last one i don't want to say i didn't care but I wasn't really motivated i guess. I am going to talk to the dr about all the anxiety and see if there is anything that he can do. It is like everything is stressing me out not even the baby, I am a nutcase

Whatever you can do to try to relax will help you right now. Your mind gets in a cycle with your body, where the anxiety causes your stomach ache, and then your mind says "oh no I have a stomach ache, what does it mean?" and it gets worse in a vicious cycle. Break the cycle!!! Physical discomforts are normal during pregnancy, it's important to develop ways to mentally cope with them in a way that does not further stress you out... Jess had great suggestions... listen to relaxing music, do something that gets your mind off, give yourself a treat of some kind... I hope you can come up with things that work well for you!!!

I talked to the nurse at the office today she explained that cramping in early pregnancy could be due to the stop of mentruals (never heard this before) also I have to admit that I have been slacking on my water intake but that also causes cramps. I am so happy I found this doctors office. For something I worried so much about it is a relif to have a nurse call me back within an hr of my call and go over all my questions with me.

I'm sorry you're dealing with so much anxiety- that can be so hard I'm glad that your doctor's office is so responsive, though

I'm struggling some, as well, with anxiety issues. I'm trying so hard to be positive. I don't want to stress either. I'm praying for you, but know you are not alone. *hugs*
