I hate being scared.

Jun 27, 2009 - 4 comments

I hate it. I hate it. I hate it.

I don't want to be weak or stupid. I don't need to be told to relax or stay positive. I KNOW a healthy pregnancy will survive day-to-day activities. I KNOW that pregnancy symptoms come and go. I KNOW that everything is in God's hands.

But none of that changes the fact that when I wake with almost no symptoms and then have to clean the house because my DH hurt his back (playing hockey, I might add...a self-induced injury), I get so scared that the baby's heart will just stop beating or I'll pull something in my stomach and hurt him/her.

I'm so angry at DH and I'm so sad that this is happening on my birthday. I just want to be sick...LOL! I want the twinges back, but the stomach pain to go away. I want to feel pregnant again.  I don't know what I would do if something happens to this little one.

I have no one to talk to. No one understands that while I am a completely rational person, most of the time ;), I am scared. Not all the time scared, but when I get scared, it hits big!  My family just says to relax and DH, well..I love him, but he's a complete idiot when it comes to offering support or understanding.

I wish I had an u/s machine so that I could just see my little sprout every morning.

I'm not a freak. I know that there's nothing that I can do now except be positive and enjoy my pregnancy, but mind is stronger than my will.

You are definately not a freak and I understand. I really really do.  The days where we feel no symptoms are terrifying for us and no amount of saying relax will change that.  Hopefully you can enjoy your birthday a bit, and for what it's worth my friend, you are not alone.  Sending you a hug and wish I could be there to hold your hand.  I can't wait till we are far enough along to pick up the heartbeat on a doppler....I want to rent one so I can hear that heartbeat every few minutes if I want.  Remember, every day is a victory and one day closer to the end of that first trimester.  Thinking about you.  XOXO Amanda

OMG! I couldnt have written that better myself!! I completely feel your pain (well fear)! I am usually a VERY rational person myself, but in pregnancy... well lets just say all of that changes! I agree with Adgal! When I was preggo with my son I bought a doppler on ebay... spent $100 but I could hear his little heart beat (most of the time) at 10 weeks +!! It was a great investment (If you can afford it) I LIVED with that thing on my belly some days!! LOL!!
You are not a freak... and you are definitely NOT alone. Feel free to PM me any time you wish to talk. I could really use a girlfriend to be crazy with LOL! Most of my friends don't even begin to understand as they have all had easy breezy pregnancies, ahhhhhh... what that must be like...
