pregnancy anxiety help

Tracy - posted on 02/04/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi. I'm 16 weeks pregnant with my rainbow baby after miscarring twice. I'm having a lot of anxiety and am having trouble eating and stuff. I've lost weight the first trimester and am having trouble gaining it back. I'm not interested in doing much. I keep having horrible dreams as well. I've felt my baby move off and on since 12 weeks. The last time I felt it was a few days ago. I keep thinking something is wrong. Some of my clothes are tighter, my belly is a little bigger. I can't help feeling scared and worried all the time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Baby movement generally occurs some time between 16 and 23 weeks. If you thought you felt movement at 12 weeks, it may have just been gas or something. The more you worry about and dread something going wrong, the more stress you put on your body and your baby. I know it's hard, because of what you went through, but you have to try to stay positive. Keep in contact with your doctor if you have questions or concerns. If you want this one to succeed, you have to take care of yourself and give it the best chance possible.
