You should definetly go talk to a professional.  If it is PTSD you want to get a hold of it and learn some coping techniques.  You do not want it to get out of controll.  It may also put you at a higher risk for post partum depression if you do have PTSD.

Congrats on your pregnancy!

As someone who has also dealt with trauma 10 years ago I would say it is worth going to see a therapist to work through it.  I waited, and regret that I didn’t go right after the incident.  about 2 years ago I was out to dinner with my Fiance, and something triggered a flashblack.  I basically blacked out, an my brain went on autopilot (called dissociation).  My Fiance said I seemed totally fine, but I do not remember the dinner at all.  I didn’t even know I had blacked out until we left.  I’ve been in therapy for a while now, and so far it is helping.

Trauma does funny things to the brain, and it is worth seeing a professional to help you work through it!

I’m no medical professional, but therapy sounds like something you should look into. Accidents are terrifying- whether or not you have PTSD, a therapist can be so beneficial. Nothing wrong with getting help!

morganc8:  Yea, it was very scary! We were walking away from the restaurant and I mentioned to my Fiance that I would have liked to see the bathroom in that place (it was a very cool barn by a river).  He looked at me oddly and said that I already had.  That’s when I realized that I couldn’t remember anything after the first 10 minutes of arriving.  I was completely freaked out.

Not a trained professional but do have a Psychology degree. To me, it sounds like a PTSD symptom. Definitely talk to a professional to get it under control before it causes more stress to you or the baby.
