    I have been really worried about having a blighted ovum or being about to miscarry after losing my main symptom yesterday morning at 5 weeks (sore boobs). About 20 minutes after I went to bed I woke up and had the sensation I was dying and couldn't breathe. My throat felt tight and and I felt dizzy and weird and my heart was pounding and I thought something terrible was about to happen to me. Must have been a panic attack as I am still alive, lol. The whole night I dreamt about miscarrying and seeing blood everywhere.

    Are panic attacks more common in pregnancy or was this unrelated to hormones and just from the stress of all my worrying?

    aww :hugs: how horrible for you. im guessing they are more common in pregnancy, since we worry so much more than normal & hormones are all over the place. i actually had a panic attack the day before i found out i was pregnant. ive also had on a couple of occasions the tightness in my chest, i think its just the general pregnancy anxieties that hit you from time to time. hope you're ok xx

    hun its totally normal, its your fears and protective instinct kicking in, i was a nervous wreck right up until my 12 week scan and had so many nightmares about misc and blited ovum. After that scan you feel on top of the world and my nightmares have gone :) good luck and you will be fine :)
