Anxiety worse in pregnancy


Hiya

I have suffered from anxiety for years,last year came off my eds when we started trying for a baby.

I am now 7 weeks pregnant and am finding that my anxiety is getting worse in general,i'm not sure if this is because i am constanly feeling ill due to the pregnancy or if its hormones?

Does anyone else get anxiety and found that being pregnant has made it worse?

xx xx

I have always been a worrier, but at the minute it's through the roof. I've had counselling because I got to the point that I was having panic attacks everytime my Nan or Dad didn't answer their phones, because I thought something was wrong. I convince myself that nothing good will ever happen to me!

But since I've been pregnant it's back to it's worst. I worry every time my family leave the house, everytime my friends don't text back, I just think everyone is going to abandon me, and want nothing to do with me, and that something will happen to the baby or me or OH! I just really can't cope with it all anymore. And I'm having one of those rubbish weeks as well this week..!

I don't know what to do about it. I think I'm going to have to talk to the doctor asap. Big hugs to you hun, and just wanted to let you know, you aren't on your own. If ever you want to talk, I'm only a PM away xx

Thank goodness i'm not the onlyone hun,although i am sorry that you're going through it too.

Like you i've had counselling n stuff for my anxiety and i've been doing really well till getting preg,i was thinking of talking to my doctor too but for me if i can accept that others are in the same position i know its likely to be the pregnancy more then my own mind,if that makes sense?

There is meds they can put you on hun whilst preg,but maybe it will help you as to know that you're not alone.

Ohhhh i've just realised we are both 7 weeks today

D
7 weeks today

I was doing really well too, but I'm putting it down to hormones whizzing about. They are all over the place at the minute, so it's only to be expected that we feel more anxious I guess. I thought it was just me, and it is "nice" to know that other people are in the same place (not really nice, but you know what I mean!)

If it does get any worse though, or doesn't ease up soon, I'm going to have to see the doctor about it, because I'm so scared of the stress it must be putting on the baby! xx
