What did I think about before pregnancy?!

Hi all,
I lying in bed trying to work out what I thought about before I was pregnant!
I seen to spend 50% of my time thinking about how overwhelmingly crap, tired and sick I feel and the other 50% panicking that something is going to wrong before I reach the 12 week scan.
I seem incapable of thinking about anything else and don't seem to have anything to say to husband, friends and colleagues since I can't generate non-pregnancy thoughts.
Sending myself mad!
Anyone else in this early pregnancy fog?

I had that at the start and it's normal! Of course it is - it's the biggest change that can happen to your body, followed by the biggest change that can happen to your life!

It does fade once you get past 12 weeks though and you can get everything into perspective.

I know exactly what you mean! And because we've not told anyone really i can't even talk properly to anyone. Roll on 12 weeks so I can properly bore everyone! grin

Bless you. Afraid it only gets worse once they are actually born. You will only be able to think about feeding, nappies, sleep, milestones and all the rest of it!

Yup - 9 weeks and driving myself crazy let alone everyone else! Hardly seen DP for weeks because I haven't been able to get out of bed for feeling so bad, so taken to ringing people who don't know just to talk about random stuff so that I can get how rubbish I'm feeling out of my head!

Before I was pregnant I was worried about my business and financial situation, I was very sad about it but now I'm so much more positive and just focus on trying to be as happy and healthy as possible, when I found out it was like a grey cloud lifted and I could see a blue sky, sounds airy fairy but I was so down about everything this pregnancy really gave me a boost. I'm terrified until I get to 12 weeks and until I hear the little heartbeat. I'm also sick,exhausted and sore but I feel elated. Good luck hope its not too long until your scan
