My entire pregnancy was fear and worry that I’d finally lose my miracle. But you can’t change much. If you do you do and if you don’t then PERFECT. Embrace it and enjoy!

Pray :pray: God’s got you.

I’ve felt the same way this entire pregnancy (I’m 25 weeks) … unfortunately I have no advice how to make the anxiety go away:( just keep thinking positive! :heart:

Talk to your Dr. They may be able to give you something fir anxiety that will be ok to take while pregnant.

Everything you get the feeling just rebuke it praying eat healthy meal and smile cause you don’t need that energy

Wait until you have a teenager. There’s anxiety.

Think happy thoughts

I pray.
Sometimes every few minutes.
Try to think logically, I know hormones can get in the way of that :sweat_smile:.
Do the best you can and you both should be fine.

I always had that fear as well…get a fetal doppler…sonoline b …think it was $20
Gave SOME piece of mind

I’ve had this anxiety every time I was pregnant. I just try to keep positive, and any time my anxiety gets the best of me, I call my doctor and they’ll do a quick well check to make sure Baby is fine. Now that I’ve reached the stage in pregnancy that I can feel my daughter move regularly, I have less anxiety. Now it’s just a smooth ride until she’s here.

Talk to your doctor. Maybe some therapy, safe-for-baby meds, relaxation techniques like meditation, pregnancy yoga, tai chi, hypnosis, behavior modification—or all of the above would help change your doomsday thinking.

Worry doesn’t help at all or change outcomes, so see if you can redirect your thoughts. One technique is to wear a rubber band around your wrist and snap it every time you start to worry. Think of kittens, a nice day at the beach, and visualize a healthy, happy pregnancy, labor and delivery instead. Reframing or redirecting your thoughts can work wonders, and not just in this situation.

Keep a gratitude journal and write down all the things that went right in your first pregnancy as well as more general stuff. You are probably blessed to live in a first world country with competent, advanced medical care for you and baby, and you don’t live in a war zone, for example.

The more you learn ways to de-stress and practice them until it’s a habit, the happier you will be. :+1:t3::heartpulse::grinning:

Girl I found out at 6 weeks (thinking I was more 12 w or so :joy::woman_shrugging:) and was scared and am still scared today at 17 w …it’s hard not to worry but I’m sure all will be fine :pleading_face::kissing_heart:

I was worried I would lose my child until the moment she was in my arms, its normal and shows you will be an amazing loving Mama.

I miscarried after a perfectly healthy pregnancy with zero issues and a flawless birth. Now have a 2.5 year old running around. But my second baby didn’t make it. Fir whatever reason and I carry that with me daily but its life. I understand being scared. But its not helpful
