I am currently 16 weeks pregnant... with my 3rd child... My first two pregnancies were a breeze. I had no anxiety then, didnt worry about anything weird going on in my body.. and everything always went smooth.
Somewhere between this pregnancy and my last one (which was only 2 years ago). My anxiety was triggered, and I soon found out I had a bad case of HA. Through meds, therapy, and self talk.. I havent had any episodes for quite some time.. I thought I was cured! 2 months into this pregnancy I realized that isnt the case.
Everything going on in my body... I notice... every pain, every ache, every feeling... I worry. Yesterday I went into the lab to give a urine sample... I asked to go in because I felt like I was getting a UTI - Today when I called in to an advice nurse line to get the results.. She told me they were "abnormal" and would have to have a doctor look at them... That sent me into a full blown anxiety attack.. I havent had one in a LONG time (About 6 months).
I was doing so good until this pregnancy... I felt like it was under control.
I fear that my anxiety is really going to cause something to go wrong in this pregnancy.
Does anyone have any experience in dealing with this during pregnancy? I wish I enjoyed my last two pregnancies and really understood how easy I had it. I never knew anxiety could really ruin happy times in your life....
