Second pregnancy anxiety...

I am about 16 wks pregnant with my second child and I have ben experiencing some real bad anxiety which turns into obsessive thoughts of the baby dieing, or me going to my check up and the dr. telling me the baby has died. It gets progressively worse as my monthly check up gets closer. I worry b/c I did not have this problem with my first child. Has anyone every experienced this?

  • Usually you only have those feelings after suffering the loss of a baby already. Either way, it's okay to have those feelings, just don't dwell on them and don't let them steal your joy while carrying your new baby.
