    Hey guys...

    We had an absolutely lovely weekend. We were invited to a wedding on Saturday, and we danced the night away, me overdoing it a little I suspect, because I haven't been out dancing since I got PG. The next day was our first anniversary, and to my surprise, DH had bought me a diamond pendant, and I felt so glam and flattered for the entire weekend that I didn't mind too much that our dinner plans went awry.

    However, the old anxieties are back today. I've not had them this bad in months. I have worried all day about our relationship, whether or not I would be tempted to leave my lovely husband for an old flame (never mind that there aren't any old flames in the picture, it's just an anxiety of mine), and I feel so acidic and yukky that I haven't had any dinner. For the last hour or so my worry has been that I don't want this baby and can't wait for it to be gone from my body. I do want the baby, and on some level I know that as what is real, but I feel so down. I don't want to stress DH out after the lovely weekend and after the sickness he's had lately (he is susceptible to stress ailments) so I came on here for a little moan. Just tell me it will all get better, girls.

    I had visited a doctor to be referred for my anxiety, but have received no appointment. I REALLY need to get a load of issues that I worry about off my chest, without hurting DH.

    Sorry bout this, I feel so...dead today.

    Hi Sue

    Sorry to hear you're going through this.

    It really will get better, we hear it all the time but I do think it is down to the pregnancy hormones at the moment. The fact that you don't have any old flames but are anxious about leaving DH for one of them I think shows it's the anxiety fuelling these worries and concerns.

    I'd chase the doctor tomorrow for that appointment, I think it'll make you feel a lot better speaking to him/her.

    Have you tried going to yoga/meditation classes? these might help you to control the times when you experience the anxiety?

    Hope you're feeling better soon
