I'm anxious and sad b/c i don't want to lose this baby. I'm 4 weeks 3 days. We've been trying for out second for almost 3 years. I had a missed miscarraige last july. So yes I feel like this WILL be the longest pregnancy ever, but it sounds like we are worried for different reasons! Hang in there. Time flies by. :) Do you have any other kids?

I was when I first found out too. :-) It was like we THOUGHT we wanted 3 kids until er actually found out I was pregnant! Then...fear set in. DS was only 9 months old. I cried for quite sometime and had mixed feelings for a long time. (Still do sometimes especially because at 30 weeks pregnant my husband lost his job. I stay home so that was our only source of income.) However, even though sometimes I find myself scared (or God forbid I admit It...unhappy) I know it'll all work out and I'll love this baby too.

Good luck to you

I was like that with my first.I have been around kids my whole life and for some reason I felt I couldn't do it 24 hours a day.I went and talked to the wife of one of my pastors (they have 8 kids) and was like how am I supposed to do this?she assured me that while I was scared,anxious,feeling unsure about it that in time it would change.she was right as soon as I saw my baby on u/s for the first time my fears melted away.I was still anxious bc I wasn't working,we weren't married and I knew how my family would react since I was only 19.but I'm on baby #2 and I'm still anxious about this baby too.I know now that I can do it.we've gone thru injury,surgery,sickness and all kinds of things as a family and I know it will all turn out ok.I'm 21 wks and I feel like I just want to get to dec when I'm due and start since I know its going to be hard again.If u need someone to talk to I'm here.GL and it will all be okay.

i'm scared of everything right now. i'm having a difficult time getting through my daily activities. i'm scared to be home alone, i'm scared to go out, i'm scared to go to work. i just have this yucky feeling in the pit of my stomach (i don't mean the baby) that is there all day. i just want to cry. i don't have an appetite, i'm not sleeping well....ugh! i just want to feel normal again. my poor husband is so thrilled and i'm not even sharing in the joy with him right now. i'm scared i'm gonna feel like this the whole pregnancy. i just want to feel better now!

Being scared of everything doesn't sound normal. Scared to leave the house etc isn't really normal. I'd talk to your Dr. :-)
