So everything started with me when I found out the gender of the baby, it's a girl, I have always wanted a girl, this is my last pregnancy since dh and I have one son together and he has a son from a previous marriage. well idk how to explain this, but every time I pick something up for the nursery I get like a sick feeling in my stomach, I guess you can say like a nervous stomach type thing, Idk how to explain it, it's like I want to completely avoid doing anything for baby because I'm scared that's my body telling me something bad is going to happen. I do suffer from anxiety & some slight depression, but I just can't shake the thought that I won't be coming home with my daughter, even when people talk about her arrival I get a nervous stomach almost like I want to puke. It's so very strange since I haven't had this with my first, I was blissfully ignorant to any possibility of anything going wrong.

I believe this all started when I read stories of mothers going into labor and finding out that their little ones passed away the day before and that scares me, and makes me feel like it's bound to happen to me. setting things up for the baby throws me into a whirl of emotions, and I again get that sick feeling in my stomach.When people say her name I feel this way also.

the best way I can describe it, is when you found out your bf has been cheating on you, or that he doesn't want to be with you anymore, I associated it with that feeling because back when I was younger I'd get that feeling, and the thought of them being with someone else made me sick.

Also the closer to my due date the more scared and worried I get since I can't even Imagine myself giving birth or even looking at her )=



So please if you have felt this way please help ease my mind!! I'd love to hear POSITIVE stories since I'm only three weeks away from my induction date and can't handle hearing anything negative. Thank you all so very much and please pray for us!

You are making yourself so sick that it's affecting you and could be the baby. You have wanted a baby girl for so long that IT"S ALMOST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE Stop thinking negative Start saying Thankyou Lord for this beautiful baby girl I can't wait to hold her to love her to see her. Thankyou Lord for keeping her safe and healthy REMOVE from me my doubts and fears. Renew in me a new song of joy. God you know this baby and you know her name befoe I even pick one. She is truely your creation and I am so overjoyed. Re[place all doubt and anxieties with thankfulness peace and joy. We are in your hands and you have promised to never let us be removed from the palm of your hand. I believe and declare in the name of Jesus that He is with you and your baby and He will see you through this scary time. Pray blessings over your daughter. This is what I did when the doctors told me my baby had a cyst growing on her lung that may grow and stop the heart from functioning and that I would never know it This was when she was only 3 months old in my womb. You have to STOP thinking the worst BELIEVE she is your blessing and your gift. My husband and I felt exactly like you do before we got married More so my husband he kept thinking I was going to die before he could marry me. We;ve been married 15 years now I told him what I am telling you STOP IT You have total control of your mind Start picturing that beautiful little face looking right at you Start letting her know you are her rock protector you love her I played beautiful music for my baby and kept telling her how much I loved her and how I couldn't wait to see her. That same music helped her sleep straight through the night. Good luck It is such an exciting time enjoy this moment I will be praying for you and your family.
