this might seem a little odd but i am overwhelmed with a feeling of panic ALL the time.. all i can liken it to is when i as a teenager and i had done something wrong and my parents had found out and i was waiting for the explosion a real sense of panic! i dont think its about anything baby specific (this is my 2nd) as i dont feel overly worried about the pregnancy and i didnt have anything like it with my son... its horrid .. i have horrid dreams and i hate going to bed because i feel so tense just lying there!!! Im super paranoid too! (again not about anything in particular just the underlying feeling)
just thought id post in case anyone else has experience of this?
Thanks for listening ladies... wish it would go away
I actually get anxiety and panic attacks as a normal occurrence when Im not pregnant, so I can relate and I know its horrible. Since becoming pregnant I have been reading about other women having anxiety attacks that began with their pregnancy. Its interesting as the whole thing seems to be hormone related, pregnant or not. Im sorry I can't help you, I can only say I know how you feel, and assure you it is your hormones. I hope it passes quickly.
I get this every now and again. When it hits me "OH CRAP" im gonna be a mummy, am i gonna cope on my own, will labour be ok, will baby be happy with just me, how will i deal with FOB coming to see baby etc etc
I have different reasons than urself i expect as this is my first baby. But anytime I get it, and I start freaking out, I take my sisters dog out for a walk, and clear my head. Always makes me feel better
I've been getting this occasionally in the middle of the night! Not worrying about anything, just waking with a feeling of sheer panic, it's horrible! It seems to be fairly common, hope it goes away for you soon, just wanted to sympathise!
Im suffering with this too, when im tired on a night its worse, and gets bad when i go out. I also am paranoid! I keep thinking someones gonna run into my bump or kick a ball into it or something. And i keep thinking someones in the house on a night! Lol. I blame hormones but would be good to hear if theres any cure!x
