I have had 6 children. I really wanted a big family. I lost 2 babies in the 2nd trimester. One was a preemie at 24 weeks and lived a short while and died. One died inside at 17 weeks. I had been in labor for several hours before that last one died while I was contracting out of control since the day before. I wonder if my panic and anxiety causes this. I have 4 living children. With each child it gets worse. I do not have depression or anxiety problems outside of this.

I would like more children. I feel like I cannot because of this anxiety problem. It is hard to even describe how horrible it is and how severe it is.

As a side note, I get pnuemonia and break bones while pregnant. The last 2 pregnancies I was physically ill through out.

Does anyone have advice for me? Is it time for me to give up?

Have you talked to your doctor about this? Do you know why you went into labor so early? I know I have problems with anxiety sometimes. I can totally understand why you would be upset and nervous. It's hard to give advice on this because this is so personal. If you really want more than, I think you should keep trying. I think you might want to talk to your doctor about the anxiety too.

Have you discussed it with your dr?Maybe if you start an anti-anxiety medication early on it would help?
