I can't stop worrying

This is a common thing to go through, I'm sure. But lately, I just can't seem to stop worrying and thinking bad thoughts. I'm 11 weeks pregnant, and freak out at every ache and pain, and always think the worst. I have had a few things happen that have scared me, but we always called the dr, and everything turned out fine. This is my second pregnancy, but I just can't seem to remember being this scared and worried with my first. I just fear having a miscarriage, then I fear going to the dr and not hearing the heartbeat, and andything and everything else you can imagine. I know I have a million hormones raging through me right now that aren't helping, but please tell me I am not the only one going through this. I feel so terrible sometimes for feeling worried all the time and not taking the time to enjoy the pregnancy.

Re: I can't stop worrying

It is normal to worry about anything and everything during pregnancy. This is my 2nd too and I think I worry more with this one than I did the first time. I don't know why that is. Anyway, I just wanted to reassure yo that what you're going through is perfectly normal. I know it's hard, but try not to worry so much and enjoy your pregnancy.

Re: I can't stop worrying

This is my fourth pregnancy and I still worry about everything. I think it is very normal and natural. The only way to help calm these fears is to read absolutely EVERY book available on the subject and sometimes that can make it worse. I am sure all will go well with you and your little one. Just sit back and try to relax a little. Read up and start enjoying your pregnancy as much as possible. lol!! there isn't always much to enjoy in pregnancy so find joy whenever possible.

It's totally normal! My husband used to ban me from going on pregnacy websites in my early preggie days cause I was soooooo paranoid and kept finding more things to worry about LOL Every cramp had me panicking. But I eventually got better and started to enjoy it

Re: I can't stop worrying

I worry constantly abotu everything too, I think it is a symptom of pregnancy! At first I went to the ER because i had a little spot of blood abotu the size of the tip of a sharpie, and freaked out. Then I called the Dr. and went there because of the same thing, and because, get this, my morning sickness went away, and it worried me, so I went again! So i went twice to the dr. for basically nothing. But if I hadnt' gone I would have just worried and worried and worried. But we got a home doppler, so now when I feel worried I just DH to find the baby for me, cause I can't find it. But I can feel it move, I think, if soemthing is pressing on my stomach, so that makes me feel better too. I think the farther along I get the less I worry. I dont' think I should be allowed to come on here either, cause I keep seeing problems that other women are having and get freaked out and decide i ahve that too!

Re: I can't stop worrying

Sounds normal to me. Wait till the baby is here then there's a whole new group of things to worry about i think all of us Mommies have done the feel the babies back to make sure he's breathing at night. some of us do it for years. Welcome to motherhood. My boys are 27,25,and 6. not a day goes by I don't worry about something.
