I'm 29 weeks pregnant self employed mum to be with our first baby, and so thrilled and excited, but for past 4-5 weeks I've been plagued with nothing but constant dreaded fear, anxiety and panic attacks over the forthcoming changes, quitting work, having to take on an employee and the added financial pressures this puts on us, particularly my husband.
I seem to be in a constant vicious circle of worry, constantly thinking about how we will cope financially which leads to shakiness, heart pounding, breathlessness, shallow breathing, constant crying, no sleep and night tremors - all of which leave me permantly exhausted and feeling like an emotional wreck that can't cope!!
I've sought help and support from my GP and midwife who tell me everything will be ok but i'm just so scared and don't know how to stop these awful feelings/effects! I'm just so very worried about our baby and the effect my body is having on it which only makes the matter worse.
My husband has been a rock and keeps telling me not to worry, everything will be ok, but I just can't stop worrying or stop these effects on my body - I feel so very scared and petrified and alone and really would just love for someone to help me.........PLEASE!........
