    Default Totally anxious after comment from co-worker

    Hi all

    I have been very anxious throughout my pregnancy due to spotting, now 10 weeks and was starting to feel better until I was discussing the NT test with a co-worker who said to me: "Don't freak out - but I've been having 'vibrations' that someone I know is carrying a baby with down's syndrome"

    I was speechless that she had said this to me, but I have since been worrying like crazy at the possibility - and I'm not sure even a low risk combined test will appease this

    People should really think before speaking!!

    How would other people deal with these feelings?

    I know it is easier said then done but please try not to worry. You dont need the added stress.
    Some people are so thoughtless - there is no way she can tell anything about your baby.
    I am sure is it perfectly healthy.
    Just try to brush off her comments as someone who wants attention.

    HonestlY? I wouldn't even listen to her. she's a rude cow. You will come to realise during pregnancy and even when you have had the baby that people will tell you the most stupid things. Please don't listen to her.

    Tell her she is an idiot and keep her vibrations to her self next time!
    please don't worry, I'd chalk it up to her being a ***** more then her 'vibrations' being true!

    She's a knob. Your baby isn't giving off downs vibrations.

    I had someone tell me there was something wrong with my baby, but she's perfect. Bossy, but perfect.

    Idiot lady!

    Please don't take notice of her.

    What a rude, stupid thing to say.

    What an absolutely ridiculous thing to say. I know it's hard but try and brush it off. Xx

    Thank-you for the replies

    Trying my best to put it to one side - still dumbfounded as to why someone would say that - even if they were the world's best Psychic!! My BF reckons she is one of those people who puts things out there in the chance she is correct and can say told you, I AM magic. Funny her 'premonitions' are all negative too - surely to be given such a gift would allow you to see the good too! I get 'vibrations' when I feel worried about something and hope it isn't true - and it usually isn't. I was nervous getting my HIV results recently and had convinced myself they were positive even though I'm not in a high risk category - but of course they were fine!

    I'm shocked at what people say to pregnant ladies, such a nerve racking time!!

    I'd be giving her face a vibration with my fist.

    KIDDING!

    In all seriousness her "feelings" will not change anything nor have any impact on it. I had spotting all through my first trimester so I know how nerve wracking it is. I now have a beautiful 15 wk old DD. Goodluck for your scan. Your colleague sounds like an idiot, please ignore her.

    Your co worker needs a good vibration up side the head, what an idiot thing to let fall out of her mouth.
