    Default Feeling nervous, scared & worried???

    Hey all,

    I am 34 weeks pregnant and have been so over the moon since the day we found out we were pregnant...FINALLY!!! We were trying for a few years and needed to use donor sperm but we at last have our first little miracle on the way...

    The last couple weeks I have started to get really worried and sometimes I would even say I am in denial...I feel so guilty for feeling like this as we are going to start our family that we always wanted! I feel like I'm not ready to leave work and like I'm just not ready?? Just wondering if anyone else has felt a little bit scared?

    It's hard to describe how I am feeling and I'm sorry for being a bit all over the place. :-s

    I completely understand how you feel. I was very anxious at around that mark too. I worked up until 38 weeks which helped as it kept me busy. So I didn't feel anxious all the time. I now have my gorgeous boy here and he was definitely worth the anxiety and wait. I ended up putting it down to the unknown about labour, not working, will I bond with my baby and will I be a good parent am I ready? I think the anxiety, nervousness and scariness of it all does pass you are about to embark on the biggest life change so far in your life you have a right to feel all those things without guilt! Goodluck I hope it all goes well. Remember don't be so hard on yourself what you are feeling happens to many of us

    Thank you so much! Am certainly glad to hear I'm not alone. Congrats on ur little man! I hope this feeling passes soon and I'm going to be working until about 38 weeks as well. I think ur right about the unknown because alot of the anxiety is when im thinking about finishing up work! I absolutely love my job, it's what I know and what I'm good at...will I know how to be a mum and will I be good at? (that's how I'm feeling) so the way you put it is spot on!!!!

    Thank you again :-)
