This is My first pregnancy and I'm constantly worried she will be a stillborn...I've had thousands of dreams about this and it scares the hell out of me... I think its hormones
Omg im going through the same thing... This is my second pregnancy and i felt the same exact way with my first and now that im pregnant again its happening all over... I dont worry about bd but i constantly worry about my mom and baby brother, everytime i think about it i pray and i think about all day...
There is actually a ton of women affected by anxiety in pregnancy and postpartum. With my 1st i had such bad anxiety I used to run over hourly in my head my exit strategy if there was a natural disaster. Omg crazy right. It happens jut try to stay calm and remember although hormones are great to help our bodies support life they also suck in many ways :) good luck.
Just pray about it and have faith that God is our protector. I was doing the same thing with my family and I'm pregnant as well, but I kept praying and asking God for comfort and a sudden peace came over me.... Leave everything in Gods hands cause bbygirl we can't control what happens in life but we can pray about it and believe with faith :)
I lost my grandmother a few days ago, and my baby is due any day. It's really hard, but I believe she will be protecting me and she will be with me during my delivery. She wanted so badly to meet the baby :( . We knew she was going though. I'll keep your families safety in my prayers!
I jst lost my grandma 2 weeks ago. we thought she had longer ti live and I was planning in taking my lil boy up to see her after he is born. but we found out she had cancer then the next week she pasted away.
I already have this phobia before my pregnancy after losing someone very close to me and also my father at a young age I cant get to grips with how cruel the world is but I tell myself everyday I'm wasting the time I spend worrying we will never get that to back again the more worrying about it the less I am living I can't put that on my child an my husband
Thank you all for your posts. Im glad Im not going through this by myself. Its upsetting, and I hope I overcome it. My family was always very strict on me, and I always was the rebel. So I feel as if I didn't get to enjoy being around my parents as much as I should have bc I was such a brat. Also, my younger brother and I are 19 years apart. Once he was born I could do anything I wanted, so I didn't stick around to watch him grow. I got married at 26, now I'm 28 and experiencing this anxiety of not being around them, and all these stupid thoughts come to my mind. I def. try and push them away by telling myself that I believe in God, and I shouldn't be over stressing myself. I hope this is a phase, and I hope I dont get depression after I have my child.
I am going through the exact same thing. I am 28 weeks pregnant and over the past 2 weeks have developed this overwhelming fear of death. My grandmother passed away in July and all of a sudden I am NOW worrying about how she is, where she is, etc. I live abroad and have started to think that I need to move back home to be closer to my sisters and parents because I now realize and think about how fragile life is. From what I've read online so far, these could be symptoms of antenatal depression. High levels of anxiety, fear of death/thoughts of death, feelings of loneliness and homesickness, etc. I think I am going to see a psychiatrist to make sure this is well monitored and doesn't turn into postpartum depression. I am not religious but have been helped a lot by thinking about the immortality of the soul and praying to a higher being for peace. Keeping you in my thoughts. We can do this!
