Avatar f tn As I approach my third trimester I become more and more anxious about giving birth its something thats constantly on my mind and Im just so scared that Im not strong enough to tolerate the pain I know women have been doing this for years but for some reason that doesn't comfort me what so ever.
Avatar f tn I used to take medication, but don't like medication so I normally cope through exercise,yoga, Pilates, martial arts etcetera, and other means like reading or talking with a friend. During third trimester here though I have begun to get infrequent panic attacks sometimes at night and am constantly feeling high levels of stress. My doctor prescribed something called hydroxyzine Pam or something which seems to be helping.
Avatar f tn Hi I'm pregnant in my 24th week and I have severe anxiety and panic attacks. I started experiencing panic attacks in march once and a while and then all of the sudden in early June just like that I was having them almost daily and nervous and anxious everyday since. I have major heart palpitations when I go to sleep and I wake up from them and then I feel like I cannot calm down. I am so close to the edge right now it's ridiculous.

Avatar n tn I have suffered from anxiety attacks for years. I'm 26 and 7wks pregnant with my third child. My doc put me on xanax 1mg three times a day. He said the risks of stress related effects on the baby are greater than the risk of me only taking the xanax when I need them. I don't take them every day but do take one every couple days when needed. I hold out as long as I can until I can determine if I will get over the attack or not.
Avatar f tn I brought up the hiv thoughts once to my ob and she just that I can't get it that way but said if I wanted they would retest me again in my third trimester but that they usually only do that with women that are engaging in risk factors which I am not. She encourages me to talk to someone. I have seen a psychiatrist and he just wanted me to take medication such as zoloft. My ob said that would be ok but I just decided not to during my pregnancy.
Avatar n tn Well first I'm 24 on my 3rd child. I already have 2 little girls & im having my son November 15th. During my 2nd trimester my OB put me on antidepressant pills. But they still not working. It's making me feel even worse. Some days are better then others. But today I feel so depressed & having anxiety attacks. Now I'm feeling like I just want to hurt myself but don't want my kids taking away from me. I'm so lost during this pregnancy idk what to do.
Avatar f tn I'm Pregnant, and those started happening pretty often in my First and Third Trimester. I had a history prior to getting them more frequently during Pregnancy, but I would only get them like once a year.... The problem with this is that when I've gotten them this time the sensations have caused me to panic. I have become afraid of the sensations and after getting a couple I have Anxiety that has been non stop 24/7 for the last two months. I got a CAT Scan and that came back normal.
Avatar f tn Myself and my fiance found out i was pregnant well into my second trimester, and I am struggling to adjust to the idea of being a parent. I'm now Into my third trimester and have been having panic attacks, they get so bad I'm afraid to leave the house. They are becoming more regular as well. large crowds scare me and I cry almost every day. I feel as though this is more than hormones. I haven't been able to buy baby anything because every time I try and shop I freak out.
Avatar f tn I'm in my third trimester and have begun to have severe panic attacks. My doctor has just prescribed Zoloft and Ativan to help me cope. I am really worried about the effects on my baby. Is there anyone out there who has been on one or both of these drugs while pregnant. I desperately would like to hear about your experiences.

Avatar f tn Girl I understand! I've apparently just entered the third trimester too but I'm as sick as anything with a bedroom still to re-do decoration wise and furniture to put up! And buy loads more things for my boy. The stress is real! You aren't alone, but soon we'll have our bubs c: its a time to be excited!
Avatar f tn *fetal malformations in first trimester, withdrawal symptoms in infant if taken during third trimester. And yes sudden cessation is linked with miscarriage, but it is safe to wean off of it gradually.
Avatar n tn I used to have anxiety attacks about 3 years ago so I thought it was coming back. All the ativan did was make me not panic when I got dizzy. My dr order bloodwork and sent me to an ENT to check my ears. I have my appointment in 3 weeks to have a 2 hour test with an audiologist to see if it's inner ear. I am terrified that they won't know whats wrong. I am so sick of feeling dizzy. I feel as though I am walking sideways, and like you, no other symptoms.
Avatar f tn I am claustrophobic and have anxiety attacks when I feel trapped, which is exactly how I felt with the last section. I couldn't stop shaking, started vomiting, & they had to knock me out because I couldn't calm down. This one is planned because I have a just freshly healed colo-rectal tear & it could tear again from pushing (I would never wish that kind of pain on my worst enemy, it was REALLY bad and took 6 mths to heal).
Avatar f tn Depending on your medication combination and the amounts of each that you are on it's possible you may be asked to tapper a little either during the first trimester of pregnancy or during the late stages of the third trimester. Only your dr can determine that (it's very possible this won't even be needed). If your dr tells you to wean off your meds completely before pregnancy then find a dr who will work with you and address your needs.

489656 tn?1250003583 i) I felt these were my babies and I had a right to see them - it is sooooooo hard but I felt with a d/c it would have been like I had never been pregnant, I wish you all the best and send prayers your way by the way did I mention that I too have suffered with panic and anxiety attacks to the point of being on my own in the garage one day and fainting, very scary. I am now also 9.
Avatar n tn Effexor may be harmful to an unborn baby, and may cause problems in a newborn baby if the mother takes the medication late in pregnancy (during the third trimester). Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Effexor can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby. Do not give this medication to anyone under 18 years old without the advice of a doctor.
Avatar f tn This started over a year ago, at which time I had heart xray, CAT scan (because I had head pains as well, but I'm told it was TMJ), bloodworks, and an abdominal ultrasound, all of which were fine. I found out I was pregnant and during my third trimester I don't remember feeling any of these symptoms. 12 weeks postpartum, the symptoms returned, which was a month ago. I went to the Doctor and she prescribed 10mg amitriptyline without even examining me, saying it was anxiety. What else can I do?
Avatar n tn Hello, I appreciate you taking the time to read this post, and any help you can offer me. I'm in the Third trimester of my First pregnancy. Pregnancy complications consist of. Partial placental abruption. And Placenta Previa. I've been experiencing various symptoms for which I see no clear reason for. *Sore Scalp (Not like a headache, but similar to the feeling after you've had your hair up in a pony tail.) Sometimes with Slight tingling on head. *Migraines. (Not as frequent as before.
Avatar n tn I am taking hormone shots to support the pregnancy, as I bled in the first trimester, and so far my placenta appears to be low. This is my third pregnancy, almost back to back, and we have a bad history with heart desease in the family.... I am 35, and have seen two cardiologist, they both did ecg, eco and I have a heart monitor for 24 hours to register its activity. The abnormal heart beat is clear, but both doctors said that it is not life threatening, that my heart appeared to be normal.
Avatar n tn I chose to go back to who delivered my first due to only being able to see a nurse practitioner until the third trimester and was very uncomfortable with the idea and her. Even the staff was unwelcoming and actually made it much worse. She didn't even seem concerned with the heart issues that my husband had. Even though I absolutely hate this other hospital I'd rather have the doctor who is very thorough all throughout my pregnancy. I get to see him in a week.
Avatar f tn I'm just now in my third trimester and have not smoked at all but i did smoke one because of the amount of stress I'm dealing with. The stress is unreal. Im working full time. I don't want to go into early labor because of stress but I don't wanna smoke either what do I do???
504000 tn?1242504393 My first three were text book with EASY labors. I had the best time during he third trimester. It was the best time for me. I had a little bit of morning sickness with them in the begining, but the end was awesome. The third trimester is not always bad so dont borrow and worries. Just enjoy it while it lasts!! I'm sure it willbe awesome!!
1047073 tn?1264674012 That all said, if I had read the material about Zoloft in the third trimester (check with Web MD or one of the other sites), I would have been to scared to keep on with it.
