I am not feelin so hot today. I am 7weeks 3 days pregnant and for a week or so now I have been waking up feeling kind of jittery and then it goes away and then it goes and comes through out the day. It's driving me nuts and I worry about how it is affecting the baby. With my 2 last pregnancies I had situational anxiety only. This is really frustrating because I have no clue how to make it stop or why it is happening.
I will say that I have not been active at all. I take a nap every day because I am exhausted and I pretty much just watch tv all day. I eat sugar here and there. So I guess until my next OB appointment on Monday I should try to be more active and cut out the sugar. I eat pretty good other than sugar. It's just when I am anxious sometimes physical activity makes me worse. It seems to get my heart going more and I get really shaky and jittery. I wish I could find others that this happens to. Just doing dishes or housework can really get me going sometimes. All I know is sitting around is making me focus on feeling jittery. Today has been the worst. I haven't taken my pulse yet or blood pressure but I am sure it is up there.
I would love to hear from other preggo women who deal with anxiety but can't seem to find any that are currently pregnant to take the journey with so we can support one another. I know there has to be someone out there going through the same thing.
In the past Benzo's haven't really been very effective for me so even if I wasn't pregnant that would not be an option unless it is 50mg of librium. It's the only thing that worked in the past. All the others seem to make me more jittery. It's so frustrating. Valium worked some of the time but only at 10mg or higher and when it would start to leave my system I would feel yucky and jittery. Xanax just made me sleepy but I still felt jittery. So it would slow the pulse down but I would still feel like adrenaline in my arms and stuff.
Also, lately I get out of breath just going up the stairs, taking a shower or anything really. I am not sure what the deal is but it's like I got pregnant and all of the sudden it was harder to catch my breath doing stuff. I hope this goes away because I don't recall it with my other pregnancies.
Ok I guess I am done ranting. I just needed to get this off my chest. My husband is at work and I am here so I guess it helps to just blog about this. I feel kind of whimpy and annoying complaining but this helps so…
