Pregnant and terrified....


Found out im pregnant 4 days ago and for some reason i feel so full of dread and i dont know why me and my partner have had a couple of rough patches but we do love each other very much. He is shocked and happy about this but i just dont know how i feel about it. I have a 2 year old already and with him working away alot it has been a difficult year. I just feel like everything is so unknown i have so many fears and worries. I had alot of complications in my last pregnancy (sfd/growth retardation/ low liquer volume/emergency c section) and im scared of it happening again it was so horrible having scans every week and the constant anxiety. Not only this they have to cut my sertraline dose down to try and wean me off . so i guess that was doesnt help . i hope nobody thinks im being ingrateful as i know alot of women who would kill to be in my position and i know what it is like x it took me 3 years ttcs my son so i understand the fustrations. Something just doesnt feel right

Sorry to hear you're feeling this way. I can definitely relate to the dread and being terrified. My reason is because i suffer such bad anxiety and am now not on meds (i was on sertraline too). I just keep telling myself that I'll be so in love with that little baby once they are here, even if the pregnancy is tough you never regret that baby once they are in your arms. Hugs to you, things will calm down in the next few weeks also its good that your OH is happy about it x

Congratulations hun It might take a while to sink in and get your head round the news.
I ended back up on Sertraline when I was pregnant with my Dr's permission as I was suffering badly with anxiety and depression. It is the favoured anxiety medication if you do have to take something when you're pregnant.

Finding out your pregnant unexpectedly can be tough, I had a really rough ride with coming to terms with this pregnancy and anxiety played a huge part in that because of the experience with my youngest daughter. It does get easier, Make sure you talk about it though and let people help you. I’m actually excited about this baby now but at the start I didn’t want anything to do with the pregnancy and felt nothing at my first scan.

I can completely understand your anxiety, hun. My pregnancies haven't been easy either... I know saying this after going through four and then being pregnant again sounds like I love it but honestly it is hard to enjoy them. I've had three pregnancy losses but when I do get a sticky bean, I get severe MS the first 20 weeks and then spend the last 20 weeks with SPD. I had polyhydramnios in my last pregnancy which led to the premature birth of my son so yeah... I'm completely on edge about this pregnancy especially since it was completely unplanned. I've found most of the ladies on here are very understanding and supportive. They really helped me get through my last three pregnancies.
