22 Weeks and SCARED! Can't shake this feeling....HELP!!!

I'm pregnant with my 1st and it took me YEARS to conceive!


I can't get into shopping or filling out a register.  I want soooo much to be happy and excited, BUT:


I keep thinking I'll go into labor at 25 weeks and she'll not survive; Or I'll go for my 32 week appointment and they won't find the heartbeat ... Yada, Yada


I feel like if I go out and shop for her I'll just have a stillborn or she'll die of SIDS at 2 days old and I'll NEVER get pregnant again.


Please help.  I just want to be happy and excited and picture a 'family' I want and a baby I desperately already LOVE to death.  How do I get over this 'bad' feeling??  Why am I so overcome with fear and worry?!

Honey, I have had six kids, and I feel the same way each time. It is completely normal.

Talk to your doctor, get a fetal monitor so you can listen to the heartbeat and be reassured.

Do you have any ligitimate reason for worrying about a stillborn?  Has there been any in your family?

no idea. i had a miscarriage last sept and i know once we start ttc again i will be the same as you. i'll feel like anything i do for the baby or any time i talk about the baby i will be jinxing it. i really wish i had something to tell you that would make it all go away. the only thing you can really do is just relax and try your hardest not to let those negative thoughts take over your life. hugs mama and good luck!!!!
