I'm 39 weeks pregnant and I can't wait to give birth! The anxiety is killing me and I just had a major panick attack to the point where I couldn't catch my breathe and I was shaking a lot. It's so uncomfortable to sleep throughout the night, and the baby gets into a position where I struggle to breathe which triggers my anxiety. It's funny cause I was so terrified of giving birth but now I can't wait to give birth because I don't want to put the baby through my anxiety issues while he's inside me. He can come any day now which makes me feel even more anxious, hopefully he comes soon, I'm not sure how much longer I can take :,(
Pregnant and Major Panick Attack - Anxiety Support
First, CONGRATULATIONS!! I have no clue who you are but I'm SO excited for you. 👶🍼!!!!!
Try to take it easy (I know, easier said than done) and enjoy the last week of pregnancy. I know it sounds crazy but one day you will miss it!
Second - have you talked to your ob about maybe getting on meds after your little squish is born? My ob put me on Zoloft immediately after birth both times.. partially preventative. (Zoloft is safe for bf) If you have anxiety and panic attacks already, I'd probably talk to your doctor if you haven't yet.
Thank you so much! I've been trying to stay active to get my mind off things and it seems to be helping. Ill consider taking anxiety medication after baby is born, it's just since my attacks aren't constant I don't feel the need for it, but I guess it would be good as a preventative and to keep my anxiety low
