So it appears, I now suffer from anxiety/panic attacks. Before I was pregnant I’d never had one before.
I had a pain in my chest a few weeks ago and I couldn’t put my finger on what was causing it. So I ignored it. It went away eventually.
Today its back with a vengeance. I know I’ve had a busy week but really, chest pains?
I think it all stems from the pregnancy dreams. They’re more vivid and usually more frightening. I have a paranoia about something going wrong so a bad dream just intensifies it and voila, anxiety.
I don’t want to see my midwife. I saw her before when there was nothing wrong and I don’t want to waste her time again. I’ve identified what it is. I just need to develop some coping mechanisms.
