really stupid pregnancy anxieties

Anyone else finding they have the stupidest of worries pop into their heads?

my example is that despite knowing my baby is without a doubt my dps a random thought that what if the baby somehow comes out black?! Why has this even crossed my mind, I have definitely not slept with (or indeed done anything more than friendly hugging) anyone else since me and DP got together and the only black guy I've slept with was my first boyfriend years ago. I had a similar thought with my mmc years ago but the other way round, what if the babies totally white when it was with my first boyfriend and he was the only person I'd ever slept with...

why why why?

There have been a couple of other threads on here like this -- similar anxieties that it may not be your DP or DH's baby even though there is no chance that it couldn't be! I would trump it up to preg hormones...

I'd blame that on your hormones. You haven't been watching jermey Kyle have you. I watched one the other day ( never normally do) about I guy who cheated on his gf and she know because he came home with scratches on her back. Hubby that night came home from work. A plumber with a scratch on his neck lol I found my self asking him he go it lol. Poor fella said I caught it when lifting boiler. I knew he did but my bloody hormones.

Never watching that Show again.

If your anxiety gets any worse worth speaking to your midwife about smile

I have a recurring nightmare that I don't feed the baby when he's born. I just keep putting it off and putting it off until he's at death's door! Why?! Insane. As if that would ever happen, but still, it scares me that it "might".

I've spent the whole of my pregnancy worrying about silly things I think as women we make ourselves feel guilty about every thing. Although this is stressful I think that's why we will be good mothers it just shows we care smile

Haha Ok so this isn't totally wierd... I have a weird fear of people either a. Thinking I'm lying when I'm not or b. Thinking I've done something wrong when I haven't. I'm not entirely sure where it came from (though I have got a mother who blames everyone else but herself for everything so that might be it)
So maybe it's related to that, the idea that the baby won't look like him and people would wonder... For no reason at all :p

It doesn't help that all his other kids, his dad and him have this strange pattern of birth marks on their backs so naturally it worries me that he'd question it if the baby didn't have thjs, bit I think it's just hormones again :p

I look 100% white but am of mixed heritage. I keep pointedly showing people FB photos of my extended family in case DC looks completely different to me and DH! grin Mad!
