This is my first post, sorry if it is a tad rambley!
I am currently 12 weeks pregnant and I have loads of questions to ask. Everything is running perfectly (Touch wood) I am 23 in a steady job with a very loving man. Currently we are living with his parents to save money for a house, which is pretty wonderful so far.
I keep having this niggling feeling everything is going too well. In the past things have gone from perfect to zero in a couple of days and i am always feeling everything will crumble under me.
Has any body else felt like this? Or is it the crazy hormones?
I don't mean this in a nasty way at all, but being pregnant at 23 whilst living with my in-laws would have been my idea of hell! What I mean is there is no such thing as 'too perfect', just what is right for you, and you don't deserve bad things to happen just because you are happy. I struggle with this stuff too, am pregnant with DC2 and almost feel I deserve a bad outcome because I have had such a good pregnancy. Rationally I know this is ridiculous but your mind and hormones do weird things.
I didnt have any sickness or anything whatsoever so I understand the fear! But then I didnt enjoy my pregnancy for this reason, shame. Now at 33 weeks and some I am just too tired and sore to enjoy. Maybe you are really lovely and positive and things will look too perfect no matter what! (Because if I had to leave with mine / his parents I would be a miserable b€%<$)
Perfect to me wouldn't look like living in someone else's home and not being able to afford my own place. If your relationship breaks up you are homeless. You have no financial security as you aren't married. It's a far from perfect situation. Sorry to be the one to say it but if you think things are perfect you are blinkered, naive or both.
I am honestly not one of those annoyingly positive people trust me! I am a winge arse at the most easy times. I think its knowing that in a way its all downhill from here - like you said the tiredness and soreness, pushing a baby out of your hoohaa thats going to be where i'm posting that I hate everything!
I was the same as you OP, struggled for so long to get pregnant that when it finally happened I couldn't believe how easy it was. Didn't even find out until I was nearly 2 months gone as I had no symptoms at all!
I was worried too that everything was going too well but I found that keeping busy gave me other things to think about and stopped me expecting all kinds of doom and gloom. A few complications have suddenly turned up since I turned 30 weeks (I'm now 37+2), BUT it's nothing that can't be dealt with by the hospital. I'm still pregnant, the end is in sight, and before you know it you'll be there too. Just enjoy your pregnancy and good luck!
