Does everyone worry about their unborn child a lot during pregnancy? Because I don't and I'm starting to feel like maybe i'm not worried enough and i'll be a horrible, uncaring mother.
I ended up in the E.R. at our local hospital the other night with severe pain under my left rib. After being given morphine, i was checked over by a doctor, had blood n urine test and then sent home 7 hours later. The doctor said in their words 'the pain you have is not life threatening to you and your baby will be perfectly fine' blah blah blah...
Later on a friend asked if i'd had a scan or listened for the babies heartbeat.. I said no and she said that she wouldn't have left until she knew the baby was ok.. It made me feel awful.
In my heart i know this baby is already stronger then me and will be perfectly healthy. I just 'know' this and haven't worried much during my pregnancy.. am I an awful mum already? This is our first baby and i've been run down with severe morning sickness and just recently fired from my job. I feel like i'm worrying more about myself then the baby.. but without me.. there would be no baby.. So it makes sense to make sure i'm ok so the baby will be ok?
I love my baby.. and i only want the best and to know it's safe and healthy.. but I think maybe i'm not putting them first enough?
This is one of those topics I feel like just deleting.. without posting.
