I’m mostly concerned about a molar pregnancy. I know they are rare. And realll I have no reason to worry about it.  I just want to hear the heartbeat and see that it’s a baby. 

I’m sure once this phase is over I’ll find something else.

Well, unfortunately my irrational fear was not so irrational. I’m currently going through a miscarriage. I was 6 weeks, 4 days when I found out this baby was gone. I guess my new “irritational” fear is that this will happen again and again and DH and I will not be able to have our family. My mom did have two miscarriages, but also had three healthy daughters. DH and I will begin trying again immediately, so here’s hoping.

I was worried about a port wine birth mark on our daughter’s face. I refused to say it out loud, I was so scared. My husband and I both have large ones. Turns out our daughter was born with two. One on her arm, which is completely gone at three years old, and one right between her eyes that is mostly gone, but gets bright red when she’s mad. Lol. We love her just how she is!

this is super silly but I’m nervous about pooping myself when in labor. not tcc for a few more months, so have some time to get over that fear 😉 also, really nervous that we won’t be able to conceive…

My favorite irritational fear (personally not TTC nor pregnant) that I’ve heard is “how do I know how to push?!?!”. One of my coworkers was terrified she wasn’t going to figure out how to get the baby out of her. We didn’t know what to tell her, but she managed just fine.

Scared of dying during childbirth. I am also scared of my anxiety being so bad that it harms the baby. I also have a fear of medicine so in the case of event that I needed medicine I would freak out. I also had a miscarriage and am scared of that happening again.

having to push a baby the size of a watermellon out something the size of a walnut.  Sounds painful.
