For every woman that has a tough pregnancy there are a dozen that have a good one & don’t say anything; squeeky wheel syndrome! Is the discomfort really what’s disuading you or are you worried about something bigger (support?)…

@Annie624:  I would say don’t listen to all the bad and take it in as if you will go through it too.  We all will have different experiences and hopefully yours will be a wonderful one.  Dont worry too much, darling, Im sure you will do wonderful.

I am only 8 weeks 3 days, and I won’t lie, it is definitely not all rainbows and butterflies.  I have pretty bad morning sickness, constipation, acne, heartburn, my pants are starting to not fit already, I am super emotional. HOWEVER, just knowing that I am growing our little baby makes it SOOOO worth it!  Found this little diddy on pinterest last night (see below) and instantly was like, yes! So true! The joy you will feel far outweighs the bad parts of pregnancy…there is nothing quite like seeing a tiny little blob with a little fluttering heart on ultrasound and knowing that you and your husband created that little miracle.  Plus, I have been taking zofran for the nausea, and it definitely makes it bearable. Have you seen the movie What to Expect When You’re Expecting?  One of my favorite parts is the end when the gal who had a pretty miserable pregnancy holds her little baby for the first time and is like “screw the pregnancy glow, HE is my glow” πŸ™‚

@Annie624:  i feel the exact same way.  I’m not as worried about any of the aspects of being a mom, or even labor and delivery, as i am about actually being pregnant for 9 months! (of course, once i’m actually pregnant, i’ll probably start worrying about those things). i’m completely terrified of not being able to live my life the same way i do now – not being able to focus on work, being sick, etc.  so i don’t have any advice, but just wanted to let you know you’re not alone πŸ™‚

 @cowgirlace:  love that! and love your entire post πŸ™‚

I feel exactly the same way. 2nd cycle and I’m freaking out. How are we going to afford a baby (aka DAYCARE)? Am I crazy for trying to get pregnant before the wedding considering that we’re paying for a lot of it? If I have to change my hours at work are they going to be upset with me? Is my mom going to be disappointed that we aren’t waiting until after the wedding? My Fiance wants it so bad. I told him the other night that I’m getting scared and he was really disappointed. I felt terrible. I know that all of my fears will be fine and will work out but I can’t help it. I’m glad I’m not the only one!

Im kinda in the same boat… we’re still inthe first cycle of TTC and although i’m ecited… i’m REALLY nervous also. My fears arent the discomfort of being pregnant nor the altered social life… my fears are more, will i be able to do this, is this truely going to make me happy, will i be able to continue working out, will my body go back, will i have time to shower? I think before we were TTC everything wasnt quite reality and it was somewhat all suneshine and rainbows and now that we’re here now… we do have to think realisticly… 

I’ve asked my husbands cousin who has a 9 mth old and she had these fears also… sounds pretty standard. I think if your not even just a little bit scared or worried then there might be something wrong. lol jk, but you know what i mean. a ot of things will change… I had to tell hubby that we wont be having fun at the bar as much; we will be having a different kind of fun watching our baby walk for the first time etc and this makes him more excited. (granted he doesnt have to push a watermelon through a garden hose lol)

@Annie624:  ha, it’s funny, because when i tell Darling Husband i am scared about being pregnant, he’s like “you should be scared about delivery, it scares the hell out of me!”  but i’m not there yet, ha, right now i’m scared about infertility…next i’ll be scared about the first tri…this whole thing is really scary!

I’m TERRIFIED of being pregnant! I’m scared of what it’ll do to my body and how I will feel. A friend of mine hated being pregnant and said it felt like an alien was invading her body. She is an amazing mom to her little boy and loves being a mother but she’s in no rush for another baby because she hated pregnancy so much. I’m scared of being like that.

These past couple of days I’ve had some pretty intense dizzy spells (out of nowhere!) and it’s crossed my mind “what if pregnancy feels like this?! I can’t do this for 9 months”

So you’re definitely not alone!

Annie624  I totally understand what your saying and feel that way too some times but the way I see it, it’s like anything you do that is brand new in life- starting school, college, jobs, relationships, getting married etc etc, they all come with the “ugggh! What if I can’t do this! I’m so scared”  mindset.

You do it in spite of that fear. and then you look back and think, wow that was scary, but so worth it!
