  • I was 19 weeks when I found out. It will go away once you have your baby. My crazy dreams did. And the paranoia that i was going to have and accident or someone was going to hurt me and take my baby.

  • I was kinda crazy when I was pregnant and for a few weeks after I had my son. I blame the extra estrogen and the hormone crash and it does go away...hang in there :)

  • Knowing the bad and crazy things that can happen are due to your job. It seems that would make it a little worse. I worked fastfood and was scared too. Yeah, once you have the baby and your hormones get back to normal you'll feel better.
    Congrats and good luck!

  • I was 19 or 20 weeks when I found out that I was pregnant with my second. I was a little relieved that it was already half way over, but at the same time I felt a lot of anxiety about not having enough time to prepare. I think you need to give yourself permission to feel the way you do and to process why. And then be okay with the possibility of there being no answer. :) I hope that makes sense... I think it just helps to know that you are not weird. It is okay to feel uncertian or scared, but just know that you are just fine. It might be a good idea to really explore your fears and bring logic to them. I hope this helps.

  • I've heard of people finding out that late. To me that sounds kind of cool, but in a way not so great. I like to have a small glass of wine in the evening, and I would be so upset to find out that I'd been drinking wine pregnant. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
