Maybe you won’t feel like that this time around? You’re an experienced mom now, so the crazy first time mom anxieties may not hit you as hard. And it seems like you managed your eating disorder in a healthy way through your pregnancy so you can always go back to that since you know it worked. You may also have an easier pregnancy, or the hormones may give you a different mentality. No one can guarantee any of that of course, but maybe it won’t be as bad as you’re thinking. 🙂 every pregnancy/baby is different and you’re different now too!

First of all, kudos to you on managing your eating disorder. I’m currently in your boat and struggling with some of the same things. I have no experience with eating issues but I was an uncomfortable pregnant lady, extremely sick and everything hurt. My labor and delivery experience was pretty traumatic and I still have some anxiety about it as well. My husband and I want another baby and want to try soon, but whenever I really start to think about it the nerves set in. I’m hopeful that my next pregnancies and subsequent labors and deliveries are easier because I’ve already been there, and I’ve experienced the positives of motherhood and know all the hardships are worth it. 

Hope this helps.
