I hope you read my message. I'm pregnant for 7 weeks. I have tokophobia. Fear of pregnancy. The idea of something growing inside me scared me. Please help me with the advice how you made. Thank you. My English is not good. I hope you understand. In my country, no one has ever heard of tokophobia. I've been anxious for years. And I'm afraid of pregnancy.

While I donít necessarily have tocophobia, I can certainly relate to many of the anxieties and worries you mentioned!

I fight with myself over gaining weight, I hate how my boobs look, itís creepy to have something growing inside you, Iím deathly afraid of vomiting (fortunately both pregnancies I never have).

I also have a phobia of hospitals and doctors, and it even affects my blood pressure. I have a huge anxiety attack for every appointment.

So I can understand to a point what it must be like to have tocophobia. This forum definitely will help, at least to let you know that some of the things youíre feeling are totally normal.
