I had an awful cold this last week and got worried that sneezing could cause a placental abruption. (Those were some hard sneezes, man!) But then I googled it and everyone was like, “hahahahaha omg no, you moron!” so I felt a lot better. 🙂

Pregnancy and having a baby brings out some crazy creative thinking. When I was expecting my son, I told my husband I kept picturing us on a boat and the boat moved suddenly and the baby would fly out of my arms and fall into the water. It was a very vivid and scary mental image. And then he looked at me totally confused and said, “why the hell would we have the baby on a boat?” And I had to be like, hmmmm, that part wasn’t something I thought about. We don’t have a boat, no one we know has a boat, and I’ve probably been on boats twice in the last decade. I guess I don’t have to worry about this anymore.

This is not really irrational, I guess, but I am so nervous about getting my harmony test results (the harmony tests looks for chromosomal abnormalities like down syndrome & a couple others). I should be getting the result any day now. I’m only just barely in the “advanced maternal age” category, which is why I’m saying it’s slightly irrational to be so worried.

As for truly irrational fears, I keep worrying that I am not actually pregnant. Like, I’ll go to the doctor and she’ll say — oops, you never were pregnant after all! Ha. I got pregnant by surprise and am not showing yet, so I think that’s what’s causing this feeling. Once the belly pops there’ll be no denying it.

When I was pregnant, I was irrationally scared when there would be hours at a time I wouldn’t feel her move. It took all of my willpower not to call my midwife in panic.

If my husband is like 5 minutes late coming home I’m 100% sure he has died in a car accident. It’s exhausting and totally something pregnancy related as this literally started once I got the BFP.

AnonymousCupcake:  OMG I have the same fear lol. I’m having an u/s next week and I keep having these thoughts like “WHAT IF SHE MISSED IT”? And yes its not like I’ll be upset its a boy per say…(I would have been happy if thats what it was in the first place) but I will be upset in that I’ve become very attached to my baby girl. I call her by her name, Our families know and my mom has already gone buck wild on buying things (even though I said to wait), and I have set a few things up myself.

My whole pregnancy I was slightly concerned they would turn aroudn and tell me my daughter was actually a son lol.  Not that it would have mattered, but I hope he would have liked pink! 😉 WHen she was born, I am pretty sure the first thing I asked was “is she still a girl?!” lol.

AnonymousCupcake:  I know lol…. I felt confident when I left the u/s and then I made the STUPID mistake of googling and of course there was examples of women who had the 3 lines etc… and it turned out to be a BOY! ugh… I was like nooooooooo why did I look?? I mean if we had a spread eagle shot I’d feel better but she was basically upside down kinda like almost downward dog? so we saw the shape of the bum and the teensy humps she said was the labia and clitoris and the 3 white lines were there…..technically if there was a dangling appendage it would have blended in with the rest of her body …..Im SO paranoid lol. But she was able to point out the shapes…so thats something? lol

And I also have the irrational nervousness just going in for the ultrasound as if we hadnt even done the 20w scan yet lol…..

KitKatNYC:  This is hilarious.

Im not pregnant but reading these, Im sure every pregnant woman has some sort of “crazy” fear of something!

For all of those who are afraid the babes will come out the opposite gender of what they tell you…I actually have a friend who this happened to. They already had one boy & their second was supposed to be a girl. They got rid of ALL their boy stuff & went and bought all girly things, took tags off, washed etc. Her quote “I thought my mom was going to pass out when the baby came out with balls!” I know it happens more with girls ending up being boys then the opposite, theres no mistaking a boy!

AnonymousCupcake:  lol Well I guess the silver lining is that you’re having another u/s so maybe she’ll give you a good shot there and you can be more sure before the birth! I think my friend never had a very clear u/s shot of that area.
