Re: Getting Blood Pressure Taken and Panic Attacks

I had my daughter in 2005, and was diagnosed with HELLP and pre-e, and still have a total panic attack when they take my bp.....and why I was too scared to have another :cry:

Trying after HELLP at 40?

This year is the big 4-0 for me. I have almost resigned us to being "one and done", but then I look at the mantle with my daughter's picture and feel like there should be another one. I feel like we should have another child in our family, yet I am still struck with fear 7 years after the birth of o...

Re: So angry.

That's a good point, I should at least try. And by me being angry, I know I am probably being selfish. I had my annual GYN check-up today, this is a doctor I have not seen before, and of course I mention possible pregnancy part, and for the first time on this whole journey, she told me, I shouldn't....

So angry.

Sometimes I feel like I am ok, and other times I am sad, and other times I am so angry, like I am today. It really hurts :( I had my daughter over 6 1/2 years ago, and thankfully, she was born small, but healthy (and has since then caught up in size). And she is perfect. I am so very grateful for he...

Re: Help long after HELLP

This sounds similar to how I felt, and then I discovered I have celiac, so I assume pregnancy and HELLP unmasked it. Since going gluten-free, my anxiety and dropped significantly (except when I think of getting pg again :(, no more stomach issues, bloating, etc...

I hope you get answers soon!

Re: Ugg my husband is upset because we are not trying yet.

I wish I had an answer, but I can say that I know many of us have the same exact feeling. Fortunately, I don't have a husband pressuring me, he is fine with one. even if I didn't have pre-e/HELLP he would have been fine with one. It is me who wants another desperately, but my fear about another pg, ...

Re: Possibly pregnant and all of the sudden, I'm freaking ou

I just wanted to say, i thought I was last month, and I went through the exact same thought process as you...until I tested negative. It seems to be pretty common to feel this way. Just keep thinking of that 80%.

Re: PE and Fear

i have totally been there, well i guess I kind of still am. my daughter is 6 now, and my anxiety is better, but still there. the first year after I had her was crippling. I was terrified of everything, from having some massive allergic reaction when eating out (which I didn't really have food allerg...

Re: TTC and irrational thoughts?

I am glad to know I am not the only one who feels this way, I mean, I am sorry others feel like me, because it is horrible and, but I am comforted to hear I am not alone. I am so bad that even if I walk into a drug store and think to myself "I am going to take my bp", I start to get major anxiety, t...

Re: Is Anyone thinking one and done

I have a daughter who is now 9 and I am 37. I go back and forth about this so much I get dizzy. I just miscarried in Feb. and was so sick with it. I am finally getting back on my feet and all's I could think about is getting healthy, working out, etc. To me, pregnancy = sickness and anxiety. I hate...
