39 weeks and panic attacks

My doctors office has been less than helpful this pregnancy and now after being told I could get a 39 week induction they are saying the hospital is too full to book me this week or next. I feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel and have started having random panic attacks the last two days. I feel lik...

Birth

The closer I’m getting the more I’m getting nervous I literally can’t be excited for my baby to be here. I can’t even go and sort her clothes out because I’m so terrified of birth and just can’t be reminded of it. Has anybody else had this experience or is there any advice anybody could give me? My fear just feels l...

Has anyone experienced a funneling cervix?

I’m 20 weeks and I have to get surgery tomorrow to stitch up my cervix that is dilated. I went in for my anatomy scan and the doctor who saw me advised me to go straight to Labor and Delivery at the hospital. I’m very nervous. I’ve never had surgery before and never been put under. They do not resuscitate babies unt...

Anyone have these on skin?

26 weeks pregnant and I have yet to enjoy a meal

I haven't liked a single thing since I got pregnant. Especially after I am done eating I feel awful. Not nauseous, just disgusted. I am so annoyed by this! It's my third pregnancy and I didn't feel like this with my first 2. Is anyone else like me?

Pectus Excavatum

Just when I thought I couldn't find anything else to blame myself for, there is something else to add to the list. On top of my son being born at 34 and 1 and needing a chest tube and oxygen support, the Dr informed me today my son has pectus excavatum. She said its a "normal variant" but I'm terrified my son will n...

Too late for nb care and bf class?

When is a better time to schedule a nb care and bf class? 34 weeks at an unfamiliar, semi-distant location (35 mins away) with probably your partner? Or 38 weeks at a familiar close location (22 mins away) with potentially just yourself?

C section in 4 days and anxious

I’m a first time mum to be and have opted for an elective c section. This is due to happen in 4 days and while I’m excited to finally meet baby I’m also filled with anxiety - in part because of the c-section but I think it’s largely the fear of the baby coming and how our lives will change. I obviously knew our life...

They said I can do a gtt if I want to but it won’t be till the end of this month at al...
