Aibu to be so anxious?(3 Posts)
Need you lovely nest of vipers to talk some sense into me please.
I am 26 weeks pregnant and on Friday I had my sugar test and some other tests done for my pregnancy. Yesterday morning I got a phone call from my Ob/gyn who said that my blood sugar test was clear but my development test was a problem. I need to go in first thing at 8am tomorrow and I am not allowed to eat or drink. She said the whole thing should take a minimum of 2 hours.
Since then I have been a mess of anxiety. I stupidly googled and now I have all sorts of scary thoughts going in my head. It took us so long to get pregnant this time and we lost a baby before this one. I have been so anxious this pregnancy, coronavirus has definitely not helped either.
Please talk me down. Has anyone had nything like this? Am I just being a hormonal, irrational pregnant lady? I keep bursting into tears, I don't even want to plan anything for the baby. I am to frightened too.
@startrek90 - hand hold. I have no experience of this but hoping someone with more helpful advice will be along soon.
I don't know about the tests you've had, but just to say I too am pregnant with a long awaited baby, after a MMC last year and a round of IVF to get this one. I absolutely sympathize about the anxiety, it's awful isn't it? I'm 12 weeks tomorrow but have already had four private scans (including the one at the IVF centre) due to worrying, which I feel a bit silly about, but no-one csn understand the anciety it causes unless they've been through it. I totally understand the upset everthing can cause - I have been in tears over lots of things, such as a lack a morning sickness (as was sure something was wrong) and TINY amounts of dark brown spotting, so must be horrible to have had a test come back like you have. If you are really anxious a lot of the time, perhaps talk to your GP about going on tablets for it? I am on sertraline, which is safe in pregnancy, and it has really helped me. I still have my moments, but it has made the whole process manageable.
