  • hehe! Sounds like me but my daughter is 3 lol*... I think it is totally hormonal... I really want to have my baby as well... and Im scared shitless... after all of the things I have been through with my daughter... I dont even wanna think about doing ALL over again lol*... I think I have been worrying and freaking myself out a little bit too! But god will not give us too much on our plate to handle! If he thinks we can get through it than we can! Everything will be perfectly fine! Don't worry... you will have a new schedule that will feel like you were doing it forever as soon as the baby is born! You will wonder why you were soo scared in the begining!! GOOD LUCK!!!!!

  • It's probably a lot to do with hormones - they can create crazy fears!! There are some days where I am fine and excited to have my baby, and other days where I get this sick feeling of pure fear and I feel threatened by becoming a mom and just want to hide under the covers and cry all day. What helps me when I feel like I'm losing control is I take deep breaths and tell myself that everything will be fine, that I am amazing and can do anything. So try that! Just try to enjoy your pregnancy and change your perspective on being sick and emotional. Remember, you won't feel this way forever!!!
