I feel mainly happy and calm during the day (the odd emotional moment or grumpy day aside). When the evening comes however I start to feel really anxious. Has anyone else had this? I don't want to feel that way as I am sure it can't be good for the baby. I really don't know what is causing it - the only thing I can think of is I am not sleeping well so perhaps it is related to that. I don't have to get up in the morning though so it's not a big stress that I can't sleep at night.
Stefka, how long have you felt this way? Are you at all worried about your pregnancy/labour/baby?
have you thought of doing some relaxation techniques in the evening? Do you go to yoga, that might be an idea if there is a yoga class for pregnant women in your area, also you could try a relaxing bath and hot drink and maybe one of those herb pillows or relaxing music. Just a thought.
I guess we are facing a lot of changes right now. I am out of a job which is ok because I want to be at home with the baby but it has taken a huge cut out of our income. My husband is about to become a student and start a new part time job - so it is all go here! I wonder if it also that I am not looking forward to going to bed because of all the aches and pains I suffer during the night.
I have been doing a yoga class - not a special pregnancy one sadly as there wasn't one in my area but I will try using some of that before bed to see if it helps.
Stefka, sorry to hear about your anxiety during the night. I was the same during pregnancy, especially when I was still working - I would worry about the most odd things that didn't bother me at all during the day. When I remembered them in the morning I would think I had been derranged the night before to be worrying about something so random! I've always been like this though - fine and calm during the day, worrying all night.
The best thing I did was to stop stressing about worrying, and as soon as I started worrying I would pick up a book and start reading or do a Soduko puzzle (can't bear the sight of them now!, anything mentally stimulating to take my mind off what was worrying me. Hope this helps
