Agree with everyone, you're taking things far too seriously & reading too much into things. Baby will be fine!!

I don't think you need to worry about anything you've done. Nothing there sounds concerning.
Have you spoken to your GP about your anxiety? Perinatal anxiety is something that really should be addressed, because you've still got a way to go, and you don't want it to escalate. If you contact PANDA, they might be able to help you with counselling over the phone and recommendations on what to discuss with the doctor.

Are these big mistakes?!
if it's any consolation I have panicked flashes of anxiety to things I might be "doing wrong"
using hairspray and breathing in the fumes
eating too much sugar (chocolates, lollies & juice)
not drinking enough water
accidentally laying on my back or right side
painting my nails/using nail polish remover
eating food in restaurants makes me edgy just in case there's something in there I can't eat (mayo made with raw egg etc)
it's so ridiculous when you consider other people do things like drink, smoke etc (not that comparing yourself to the worst is anything to go by lol) and we're worried about using a bit of hairspray!

My anxiety/depression issues are resurfacing too. After a year of trying to conceive with ivf I became pregnant. I tried to play it casual in the first weeks as I had a severe bout of food poisoning so figured it hadn't worked. Then when I found it had I tried not to care about the pregnancy so that if I miscarried I wouldn't be too upset. Then at 9weeks around Christmas time when my obgyn was away I came down with the flu/chesty cough and remember being hot so put cook cloth on my head and went to bed. Then the next day I got up to cook Christmas lunch in our hot kitchen (I live in Singapore so it's ridiculously hot) still with a hot head. It never occurred to me to check my temp as I was so busy looking after everyone and everything else. My obgyn then kind of scolded me for it when I could finally see him. I have been spiralling ever since and convinced myself that I've brain damaged my baby. I feel so bad that after everything I don't want to be pregnant anymore.

@Otter, it is really easy to worry about everything (from conception pregnancy and even as a parent!) It never stops. I would suggest seeing your gp for some strategies to help with anxiety - and if your temp was 38+ you would probably have felt like you were going to die and not been able to function - even with panadol! It is unlikely it was high enough for an extended period to damage bub. Try to relax and enjoy this time pregnant x
