I have some super irrational fears that I'm having a tough time with (thanks to midwifery school).  Amniotic fluid embolism is at the top of my list, followed by DVT/PE/stroke, and placental abruption.   I know these are irrational, and I keep trying to convince myself that I am low-risk, and my midwife and I are working on it - but jeez! 

 

I freaked out so bad in the beginning that I asked for a U/S at 4w4d - and then saw NOTHING (appropriate).  Then, still freaking out, I had HCG levels drawn.  Then, the hyperemesis started and I initially declined fluids... I don't know why she puts up with me...
