Anxiety

Does, or did anyone get anxiety while pregnant? I used to get it once in while before I was pregnant, but now it seems that it hits me almost daily and I don't know where it comes from but it is getting to the point of making me want to cry.

    Did you just let it pass? I just try to keep busy when it sneaks up.

      Are you having fears about the baby?

      I think that it comes from having this sudden enormous amount of responsibility ... and also a real fear of something bad happening not just to you but if something happens to you then your baby is alone.. this is NORMAL!!! You are normal... being a mother is a heavy weight... not in a bad way, but it can be very scary sometimes... knowing that you are responsible for this life and well being... and you still have to take care of you..

      Recognize that it's you being aware of all of this... tell your doctor, get your check ups and trust that you will be fine and so will your baby... sometimes it can be overwhelming.. I wish I could tell you that goes away, but it doesn't.. some times it's worse as they're older... but you get used to it.. so hang in there.. if you know what it IS that you're feeling and WHY then... it may feel better...

        I have always had really bad anxiety and being pregnant has just made it worse. my doctor has me taking an anti anxiety medication and it is helping

          Thank you, I find keep myself busy or talking to family helps, but I'm going to talk to my dr. next appointment.

              I get anxiety all the time not just when pregnant. it can be debilitating so I know what you are going through. have you tried any natural remedies?
