Anxiety & Pregnancy

Okay gals.. I must admit.. in the past few years I definitely have odd anxiety issues.. I haven't gotten them sorted properly, but have come to conclude, to some extent, that I definitely get claustrophobic ‚Äčin odd situations.. even alters my driving.. ie.. I steer clear of highways for the most part.. sigh. Anyways. I have come to learn how to cope a bit with it.. or feel a lil episode coming on... I was actually going to get sorted out and checked out and then wham bam, thank you mam... preggo.

Anyways.. I told my one OB nurse, whatever she is, about it.. and that perhaps after they baby is born I can get things looked into further.. she also said that obviously being preggo can heighten things.. and I get that.

I am just curious as to if any of you have experienced anxiety in odd situations, especially while preggo? Those hormones I tell you... :)

    I tend to avoid left hand turns. I was in an accident in 03 and don't really like them. Now, I have to put my head between my knees even when I am a passenger and the driver is making left hand turns. Yes, I do think that pregnancy amplifies certain anxieties.

      Just in my pregnancy after our 18 week loss in 2004. My next full term pregnancy was our sixth child, who was our fourth girl. During that pregnancy I had anxiety and panic attacks. :( I was so scared I was going to lose her too because I had just had two miscarriages in a row. I never told anyone about it but my husband because I knew it was because I just could not get those fearful, worrisome thoughts under control. I was fine after I gave birth.

          Definitely, issues are amplified during pregnancy, and even worse for me post-partum. Road kill, and the nightly news made me weep. I could handle no stories about the holocaust. Worries awoke me from sleep. Most resolved itself, but after my third I have been taking anti-anxiety meds so that my sleep is uninterrupted by worries. You don't want to live with me when I am getting NO sleep! :) Prozac takes the edge off, though I would still consider myself "sensitive."
