    Default Do You Worry?

    Second thread for this morning so sorry to clog it up haha. I'm just wanting to if there are others out there that worry during your pregnancy about things that could go wrong. I have some anxiety too so that wouldn't help but worry about things going wrong all the time even though all ultrasounds etc have come back fine. Am I the only worry wart???

    I think every Mum to be worries - part of becoming a Mum! The worry doesn't stop once you give birth either...

    Constantly!! I'm 15 weeks now so the anxiety is easing a bit. I also bought a doppler & that has helped reassure me a lot, I highly recommend getting one!

    All. The. Time. About everything and anything.

    Anxiety and a dd born with a defect does nothing to help me! I've just learnt to deal with it with deep breathing and positive thoughts.

    I did enjoy my pregnancy but I also worried the whole way through. It wasn't until DS was placed on my chest that I stopped worrying - although I did keep asking 'is he ok?'.

    Now the worries are different, but they'll never go away.

    I think it's totally normal. In fact, it's not "IF" you worry, it's how much u worry that's different from person to person.

    I have massive anxiety about everything during pregnancy. For me the only time the anxiety eases a little is when i start feeling baby kick. Until then, my Doppler keeps me sane

    Yep, I worried pretty much the whole way (and had a few full-blown panic attacks) through with both kids. But I have OCD so I saw my psychologist every fortnight to make sure I stayed sane. I found that I'd feel much better after an ultrasound - seeing the little tackers wriggling around always reassured me.

    I hate to say this, but there's so much more to worry about once they're out!

    Definitely not the only worry wart. I worry a lot. It's caused a lot of stress and anxiety during this first pregnancy. I'm seeing my GP and speak to her a lot about it. Shes actually going to refer me to someone to speak to but I think thats not only because I worry about bub even though the ultrasounds and everything are fine (with some heightened risks discovered earlier but apparently are fine) but I worry about the birth as well and having a lack of control even after reading up on birthing skills and all that stuff so you're definitely not the only one, and I won't say "try and relax"or anything because I know how hard it is to be told that and think ""easier said than done"which it is.

    I was worried pretty much constantly until I started to feel movements every day We had been trying for such a long time, and had a previous miscarriage, so even though every test was coming up fine and I had no worrying symptoms (thank goodness because that would have had me panicking) I still felt it was too good to be true.
