Anxiety board

I have gad and have had it since I can remember. Mine centers around health issues a lot. Because of this, I had a hard time dealing with some infertility issues . I too have endometriosis,or HAD it. Not having any prob. right now. I have gone through 2 pregnancies and have two perfectly healthy children. The pregnancies were very uneventful. However I had a lot of anxiety with the first. Like with everything else, I worried about all the things that could go wrong. At the end of my pregnancy I started waking up at night having what I can only discribe as a panic attack, feeling like I couldn't breath and a feeling of doom. My son ended up weighing 10 lbs so that was part of the problem with the shortness of breath. I was on prozac each time until I had a + pregnancy test. Once I was pregnant I just delt with the anxiety as best I could, with massage, meditation, and lots of Drs apt. for reassurance! It can be a difficult time, but it is so worth it! I did much better the second time around . I have a 3y/o and a 10 month old. They are the joy of my life. They have helped ground me a little. I still have probs. with gad, but now I can get a grip, but its not just me any more. I know I can't be a spaz when I have my children to think about. Best of luck to you for an easy conception, and a joyful pregnancy! :) Scarlett
