y'all, this has been the hardest week emotionally in my pregnancy so far. The flood gate has opened and i am constantly panicked that something will happen to the baby. I don't know what to do. It has been a great pregnancy so far. I have had very high hcg #'s and we have seen the babies heatbeat every week from 6 weeks on. Baby is wiggling around great, but I still cannot shake this horrible feeling. Is this normal?? I am desperate. Help??

You know I went through something very similar I think right around the same time you are. I also talked with a few friends about it and found that it's atcually common. I had this feeling of doom all of the time, I was really scared of dying and medical procedures (if needed). i thought of crazy things and I recall tv didn't make it any easier as that week there were episodes of a pg woman getting an arm amputated and a few others I won't mention in fear I might be implanting bad thoughts in your mind LOL! I want you to know you are not alone in this state of "maddness"...It does subside. I'm 15 weeks now and although I still have occassional crazy thoughts they surely are not as intense and as frequent as they were a few weeks ago. Come here to vent anytime. We understand and are here for you. Try reminding yourself that everything is ok in this moment and if you happen to be spiritual, really lean on that. It helped me to pray or read the bible when I was feeling exceptionally anxious.

Big ((((HUGS)))

Thank you Norina. I am a Christian and praying and relying on God has been what I have been leaning on. I kind of feel exhausted though. Like I have prayed so much that I am not sure I can pray anymore. I have been so controlled this entire pregnancy til this week. My husband thinks it has just been building up and has to come out sometimes. He is so great. Anyway, it is good to know I am not alone.

I know that pain, and still experience. If I go too long without seeing the dr. I get panicked. I have read a few good books... Pregnancy After a Loss is good and reassuring. Some times I just have to chant to myself that this is in God's hands, and I can't control it! We know how you feel.... sending your best wishes and happy thoughts!

Sometimes we can feel "singled out" by God for these rough times...just tell yourself over and over that He cares and He is there. Even if you can't "pray" per say, take solace in that He knows your heart. Our loss of control in this situation is the hardest thing i think to deal with. This truely is in His hands like wolfie said. Not even our "bodies" our ours anymore right?! Your dh is right, that all these feelings need to come out somehow. Keep talking, keep faith. It will get better. Like I said the moments come and go now but they're much better then they were a few weeks ago. (((HUGS)))

Thank y'all so much. Your kind words have just meant the world to me. I go for my 10 week u/s tomorrow. I am nervous as all get out. But like y'all have said, I keep reminding myself that this baby is in God's hands.
