Response to Re: Paranoia! (child ment)
I have to say, when I am busy it's not as bad as when I'm not and have time on my hands to obsess. When my DH is home, he distracts me. But when he's not..oh boy.
I go to the OB 1x a week, you would think it helps me but the days leading up to it are awfu, starting 5 minutes after I walk out of there, til he next appt, lol.
I'm trying to tell myself to focus on the positives. I am eating well, drinking all my water, resting and not letting outside of pg stresses get to me. And when I get good news from the dr, I try to remind myself "I am on track for this week and the baby will continue to grow and all will be well"
Basically I try to talk myself out of the bad thoughts in my head.
I know it's hard. We are all here for you.
Find things to dive into. A good book, a long movie, a good friend, a walk. Music. And definitely create a mantra or something to repeat over and over until you feel better. Mine is "my body is capable and I am doing everything in my power to nurture myself and this baby and all will be well"
