Is anyone else having rational or irrational worries about things?
For some reason I don't remember being this anxious with DS...or maybe I just forget. Every week so far something new has cropped up, and sometimes I lose sleep over it.
It has ranged from rational - I had a group b strep UTI that required abx, there is chicken pox and fifth's disease going around, I'm gardening on a farm with outdoors cats (toxoplasmosis) Luckily all of these can be eased with some bloodwork for immunity - still waiting on 2...
To some irrational - worrying about family member's health (nothing wrong with them at the moment), driving by a farm that is spraying pesticides and catching a whiff for several seconds....."silly" things.
It tends to creep up at odd times. Other times I could care less and let things just be the way they are going to be.
I know stress isn't good for baby either, so I really try to subdue it as best as I can - I'm just starting to feel really silly for having so many worries - am I the only one?
I don't know if I'm more anxious b/c I know this our last child, or maybe b/c I was so sick with MS during the first tri, or I've just heard/know about too many things that can go wrong. I've had miscarriages and infertility, so this pregnancy happening naturally (and the timing) was a real surprise - maybe that's playing a part too.
Anyone want to talk it out with me, get the worries out, then just relax and enjoy this preganacy? :)
