4th Pregnancy Paranoia.

Ashley - posted on 12/09/2010 ( 2 moms have responded )




I am now in my 2nd month of my 4th pregnancy & I am absolutely terrified. I should be an expert at this by now & feel at ease. But, instead I can't shake this awful feeling that something will be wrong with the baby or something will gone wrong during delivery. I have considered the reasons I feel this way now considering I never once had these thoughts with my other pregnancies. Coincidently, several of my friends that are now pregnant or just had babies they have had complications. Maybe, this is why I worry?!? I know that ultimately it is up to God what happens, and what will be- will be, but it's making this pregnancy really hard on me to feel this way. I also feel like it is selfish of me to be blessed with another healthy child, which I know sounds ridiculous. Has anyone else had these types of feelings & how did you deal with them? The last thing I want to do is add extra stress to myself during pregnancy, and I know it isn't good for the baby. Someday's all I can do is sit & cry because I am so overwhelmed with these horrible feelings. Please Help..

Talk to your midwife ------ I did.
I look at my daughter (who is 6 weeks old) now and still can't believe that I made it - did it - and came out the other end despite the imagined impending doom!! She's perfect and your lil prince or princess will be too.
