I am 36-weeks-pregnant and am really stressed: Advice?

Hey mamas. Right now, I’m 36 weeks pregnant with my first, and I’m feeling a lot of stress. I find myself crying a lot nowadays and getting irritated at small things. With getting so close to giving birth, I’m scared to even more so because of the COVID-19. I feel emotionally, mentally, and physically drained. I want my little one here so badly, but I want her to stay inside me for as long as possible. Pregnancy is hard enough as is, but with this, I just feel really worried. I’ve tried talking to my partner, my mom, and other family members. But they don’t know what to say, which is okay. I’m the only one in the family that’s going through a pregnancy during a pandemic, so they don’t know what to say. For you mamas to be during this time, how have you kept from feeling like the world is weighing down on you?

Good day everyone, am here to testify about the greatest spiritual healer that helped me believe in life again after my husband had left me for another woman.
Life has been so difficult for me these past few months and I had given up on myself knowing that I will not find love or true happiness again. My husband left me for another woman of whom he was working with at the same station and this really left me with no more reason to live and i even once had thought of giving up on my own life but decided to give myself another chance to live, so i decided to contact my elder sister and tell her of what i was going through. My elder sister told me to contact Mama TINA after Mama TINA helped her bring back her husband who had left her for one year and went and stayed with another woman but when Mama TINA did a love spiritual for her, the husband came back in 2 days and from that time they are so happy and so in love and we all see it. So my sister sat me down one day and talked to me as woman, to woman and told me I should do everything in my power to get my boyfriend back because he had also broken up with me after I caught him with another woman. I was so hurt when I knew my boyfriend was having an affair with another woman but my sister told me not to cry and be strong and that if I still love my man I should make sure I get him back from that woman. I contacted Mama TINA and told her my problem and she made a love and binding prayer for me and in one day of the prayers my boyfriend called me and begged for my forgiveness and promised never to hurt me again. We are back together so much in love and recently he proposed to me and we are getting married soon. I thank u Mama TINA for doing a strong love spiritual prayer you made for me.
You can call or whats-app Mama TINA on +27673788758 in case you need any spiritual help for am sure many of you out there are in this same situation or even worse.

25 weeks and really just hoping all of this is over before I give birth

I am 30 weeks today…as i am not in your position as yet…i just want to assure you to keep peace and work from the know, it is okay to mourn what you have planned but know that your baby needs to be calm and relaxed and so do you…you are definitely allowed to cry & feel but try some relaxation methods & also you have a gynae and a birthing partner ( whomever that may be ) and a whole lot of Womens support even if you do not know us by name :heart::pray:t2: keep up your immune system by keeping calm and communicating…dont forget faith.
You can do this Mama​:herb::black_heart:

I feel you mama, I’m 35 weeks but with my second. Prayers for you and baby.

Im very early in my pregnancy but also feel a little worried as no one really knows how long this is going to last. All I know is that a lot of mom’s are ditching their obs and hiring a midwife to have a home birth where the people they want can be there. I would do that if worst comes to because im having the mom’s as my support and the dad as a camera guy cause he’s a bad support from what I could tell from my first birth lol. Just rest up if you can take deep breaths and know that our lovely nurses and doctors are doing everything they can to keep us healthy and safe.

Let your doctor know how you are feeling my daughter is 35 weeks and going through the same and her doctor gave her meds to help her relax due to a history of anxiety.

All you can do is be as careful as you can. We are all scared. I have a baby in the NICU and have been directed to stay home and isolate cause I had gotten a sinus and chest infection. Use a car seat cover and wipe everything down with disinfectant wipes as soon as you get home. I am having a hard time cause I haven’t see my son who was born 29 weeks in almost 3 weeks because of this virus. Keep a positive mind which is hard I know. If I had the option if he was full term I would have had a home birth and my midwives present. I probably wouldn’t feel anxious as much as I do now.

I’m freaking out for different reasons: my husband is at the end of his deployment, he can’t come home because people won’t stay home and let this virus die out. My two girls don’t get it. I’m not worried about the hospital aspect of it… I’m not sure if it’s because it’s my third or because I still have sometime but I know they are doing everything they can to make sure we are all safe while at the hospital.

Please try.your hardest to be positive. Talk to your baby and tell your baby it will be okay. That you will protect it with all you got. That, will give you strength. :heavy_heart_exclamation:

Just breath honestly just breath I know it’s scary and it’s okay just focus on the health of your baby. I’m 27weeks tomorrow single mum only have a 13year beautiful daughter. Just be thankful you have someone to go in with you when you have baby. I honestly have no one but I’m okay with that and just focus on being positive and remembering the word safe. Because that’s all you want for your precious lil gift. All the best :heart:

Just had my baby (2nd child) 2 weeks ago and it was nerve wracking with the whole virus thing. My husband was the only one allowed at the hospital and none of our family or friends have been able to meet the baby except seeing him through FaceTime and our patio door so it definitely sucks. Unfortunately there’s not much I can tell you to ease your stress other than just take it one day at a time and do what you need to do to keep your baby safe from all this virus mess! Hang in there mama and try your best not too stress over things you can’t control.

It’s not easy but the doctors will tell you to isolate in your house stay away from other people and do not go out in public with your child.

I am 31 weeks and I know that I can’t do anything about what is going on in the world. I spend my time with my husband and try to watch funny shows on Netflix. I know if I am stressed baby is stressed so I am focused on all the normal stuff…getting this or that for our daughter, what’s for dinner, what am I taking to the hospital etc. Then I break down and cry for a few minutes to let the frustration out and find something funny to laugh at!
