argh im so sick of this health anxiety! its all just come on in the last 2 weeks, i just posted a thread about it but now sitting here its getting worse. today i looked up placenta previa at 20 weeks i was told my placenta was a bit low and now im panicking and thinking that the general aches and pains of pregnancy are something worse, right now i have a cramp in my pelvis in my sides and im convinced something is gonna happen. i hate this i cnt relax and just enjoy the quiet with the kids in bed with my dh. i go for a scan next week, to see if the placneta has moved and im so scared it hasnt. i was feeling better since seeing my cbt today but now its getting worse and i can feel a panic attack coming on

Hi Jenn321,

Hope you were okay last night? I know its easier said than done, but you need to try to distract yourself from the horrible thoughts. Just keep thinking you have been through 3 pregnancies before and you are still here to tell the tail wink! Think of all the positives, rather than focusing on the negatives! Positives - 1.In 5 weeks time this will all be over and you will look back n think what the hell was all the worrying about. 2.(this should have been 1, lol) you will have a gorgeous little bundle in your arms! 3. You get to watch that little bundle grow into a bouncing baby! 4. your older dc have a new little b/s to fuss over! 5. Its less than 6 months til christmas, lol!

Seriously though! I hope ur okay! Chin up!
