Hi, im 28 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I'm excited but very scared to give birth in a couple months. I know my anxiety is most likely from googling years ago way before I got pregnant. I came across articles about amniotic fluid embolism ever since then it's stuck in my head all the stories I have read. I was on YouTube and another one of those stories came up again today! A lady died during labor from AFE, I obviously watched it like an idiot and my anxiety is through the roof. I'm trying not to cry but there have been hand full of times I had to let it out, im just that terrified. I pull myself together after few minutes cause i feel guilty and worried im stressing my baby girl. I talked to my family and husband about my fear and all they say is I need to calm down for my baby, nothing will happen. I have good days but alot of bad days. My mind goes wild. I have a small uterine polyp diagnosed before got pregnant, never had it removed cause doctors was not worried. So I think that will tear and cause AFE. I also was told years ago I got friable cervix, I bleed during pap smears and I bled apparently during my last pap smear in beginning of my pregnancy. The doctor said I would notice bleeding at home after pap but never did and she asked if I had bleeding during sex and I never do so she thought that was weird cause I do have friable cervix. That being said.. I'm afraid my cervix will tear during delivery too. I bought up amniotic fluid embolism with my OB and he tells me it won't happen and to stay off google. I know it rare but I'm the type of person who thinks it will happen to me no matter how rare something is, every surgery I had I was convinced ill die. Now with childbirth I'm doing the same. I hope I'm wrong again and I survive it! Anyone like me out there afraid of this happening? Ps I also think because everything going smoothly so far (hopefully stays that way) that something bad is going to happen. I'm seeing hursts alot lately so I think that is a sign im going to die. I think weird stuff or just can't see myself around my daughter to raise her some days but then other days im confident.
