I have extreme aniexty and usually take xanax for it, but when i found out i was pregnant at 8 weeks or so I weaned myself off the medication and in 3 weeks i was almost 12 weeks and i was completely done with the medication. I have since read the dangers it can cause to my unborn child and i don't know if i have caused harm to my baby boy. My aniexty is pretty bad so i don't know if im worring extra do to this, but i didn't have medical insurance at the beginning so I hadnt gone to the OB, but i have since aquired insurance and had my first OB appointment at 16 weeks and a 20 week scan now and they didn't really say too much during my U/S appointment and i don't go back to the OB till 8/27(different offices) and i wasn't sure if anyone has had a simular experience and what their outcome was. I try very hard not to stress as its not good for me or him, but it is hard and even harder thinking something might be wrong with him cause i wasn't supposed to be able to get pregnant without professional help but it happened naturally and i'm happy and scared at the same time. I was hoping that getting other mothers opinions and experiences might help ease my mind.
