*gulp*

Yesterday, was not a great day.
I'm trying to make today better. Something about early pregnancy always causes lots of anxiety for me, and this time it's almost worse, because I know that terrible things happen, and I am in no way immune. I try not to worry about it, but it's not something I feel like I control. I wake in the middle of the night, sweaty and cold and anxious.
I don't have much to say. I'm forcing myself to get out of the house as I will feel worse if I just sit here.
I am so sad for Mirne and Craig. I am just shocked for them and I can't imagine how their world has fallen apart.

Anyone have any pregnancy friendly tips for relieving anxiety? I can't do this for the next nine months. It can't be good for either one of us, and that makes me anxious about being anxious...sigh...

I have been away awhile from blog land but I am so happy for you. Congrats on the pregnancy. I will pray for your little one to grow healthy.

Sorry I don't have any remedies for you.

I am anxious as well, I keep telling myself I'll feel better when I see the ultrasounds and whatnot, but deep down I don't think the anxiousness will go away until we bring our babies home, safe and sound. **HUG** I am right here with you girl.

Lindsay, I lost touch after I took my laptop in to get cleaned up, and boy did they clean up... all my files, favourites, etc. I just found you linked from another blog, and I am just catching up on your exciting news! It sounds like you're not having an easy time of it, I pray that things begin looking up for you very quickly. Be well,

Nilia

I really don't know much. I probably say all the wrong things. But, just one thought I have is this: maybe if reading a lot on blogs does more to increase your anxiety than relieve it, you could think about taking little breaks...stepping away every now and then? I don't know, sorry that's probably completely the wrong thing to say.

I'm thinking of you and wishing you peace and calm. xxxooo

Lindsay, ask for a referral to a reproductive psychiatrist. Not kidding, there is such a thing. I was referred when Calvin's heart defect was found at my twenty week scan and I was crying and axious all the time. My doctor's specialty was mood disorder during pregnancy and she knew every drug out there that could be used to help anxiety. I ended up with a script for some ativan which I used occassionally to help me sleep at night. It stopped my racing heart and panic attacks about what might happen and I was able to endure my pregnancy thanks to her. I also have a book I could send you if you want. Send me an email and give me your address hon. Love you

Oh Lindsay!

Just catching up. I am so, so happy for you!

This is such an anxious, terrifying, yet hopeful time for you. I'm right along with you.

One day at a time.... we'll make it.
