    Default Paranoid about something going wrong?

    I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant and find myself sometimes getting anxious that something will go wrong during labour or that I will have a stillbirth. I have never had any type of pregnancy loss before and it's only been the last week or two that I have started feeling this way.
    I have no reason to really be worried as my pregnancy has been really easy apart from some morning sickness in the first trimester.
    It's not all the time that I'm worried about it. Most of the time I am completely bonded with this baby and enjoy just relaxing and feeling her kick etc.
    I bought it up with the midwife who brushed it off as being normal to be a little bit anxious. Has anybody else felt this way and did it get better closer to delivery?

    Yeah, I second that. it sucks, but it's normal. If it's keeping you awake at night and interfering with your life- like you don't want to get in the car just in case of a car crash- then speak to your midwife.

    I'm having similar thoughts to you OP, am 35 weeks and have moments where I think about something going wrong in labour or me missing a feeling, being distracted and not noticing that I haven't felt movement in too long, umbilical cord getting wrapped around etc. My husbands elder brother was still born too so have thoughts of that also. Sigh guess it comes with parenting doubt ill ever stop worrying from now on

    I have read it's really normal and in a way hope it just makes me more aware. But anyway you're not alone x

    I've had the odd worry like that since i POAS and got a BFP.
    I think it's totally normal.
    You never stop worrying, even when bub comes out, then you just worry about something else
    Part and parcel of motherhood I guess!

    Thanks for all the replies. Makes me feel a little bit better about it all!
    I might just start hoping it makes me more aware as well.

    I'm also constantly anxious about my baby (its my first). I would say that if you have worries and doubts, always let your doctor know. Sometimes you just need some reassurance, and its good to talk things over, rather than googling it and worrying yourself silly.
