So im 40+2 & more within the past week or so as my due dates gotten closer I have become increasingly scared of dying in or immediately after labour and I stupidly read something about amniotic fluid embolisms , upon researching it because my brain is cruel enough to want to know everh detail and scarr me further , I found that it is indeed very rare and only occurs in like 1 in 8000-80000 pregnancies but it's still so scary ! It doesn't help that I had bad health anxiety before getting pregnabt after losing my sister in law very suddenly to a dvt, ive been better recently but im just getting abit obsessed with this now and it's driving me crazy, my pregnancy has been fine apart from a High BP on and off and jve been told worrying about this is common in the final pregnancy stages but idk I just wanted to get it out and some thoughts

It is perfectly natural to worry about yourself during these last few days of pregnancy. You will find that the worry switches from you to your child once born and you worry about them instead.

If you feel it is getting on top of you, or affecting your life then you must speak to someone either your GP or Midwife - they will be able to help.

I suffer from anxiety and it can be awful but I certainly forgot about it whilst in labour x
