Fears During Pregnancy

I am past my half way mark in my pregnancy.

I don’t feel like I am doing what I should be, if I compare myself to other expecting mothers.  I don’t have a crib, a pediatrician, and I haven’t even thought about what theme to make the nursery.  Should I be concerned?  I wanted to wait until my seven month before I start making decisions.

I should really stop comparing myself to other people before the baby is born. I don’t want her to be a product of jealousy and competition. I want her to be love.  Although, has anyone ever been successful?

Our society is built on one-upping each other and stealing someone else’s ideas and making it their own. Of course with the catch word “innovation” it really isn’t stealing.

I am concerned.  It’s just one of the many things that runs though my head.  There is so much negative exposure in the world.  It’s impossible to keep her from it.  If I try, it will eat her from the inside. At this point, communication seems to be the path to take.  So many worries……

On a single day I have over a few dozen thought of fears pop –up. I wrote them down, her e is some:

  • Will pregnancy ruin my body?
  • Can I manage a career and motherhood?
  • Will I able to provide what the baby needs?
  • Will having a baby end my social life?
  • Will I be a bad mother?
  • Will her father be able to handle fatherhood?
  • How is my current friendship with childless couples or single friends going to change?
  • What if the baby has birth defects? What if I caused it?
  • What if I lost the baby?
  • What if I have very bad post-partum depression?
  • Will I ever be able to sleep?
  • What if I reject the baby?
  • What if the baby rejects me?
  • What if I pooped on the delivery table?
  • How much was the delivery really going to be painful?
  • Can I handle labor?
  • Will the labor traumatize the baby?
  • Will I have a C-section?
  • What if I die from giving birth?
