Avatar m tn Women can become very emotional during pregnancy, but nothing like what your wife is displaying, and she is no longer pregnant. Her reasoning for stopping her medication may have been due to paranoia. Your wife needs help and you DO need to keep your daughter's safety in mind. Know that your wife cannot help herself, and it's not intentional, she is sick and needs professional help. But still your daughter's safety is an issue here and you're right in being concerned.
Avatar m tn For example, women with diabetes must be especially careful about keeping their blood glucose levels under control, both before they begin trying to conceive and during their pregnancy. Abnormal levels increase the risk of birth defects and other complications. This is also a good time to talk with your health care provider about other habits that can pose a risk to your baby, such as drinking alcohol or smoking.
Avatar f tn Before my first pregnancy, I suffered from anxiety in the 1st trimester. I also suffered from post partum depression after his birth for several months. As soon as I got pregnant with this baby, I began having anxiety attacks again. Hormones are crazy!!!!
Avatar f tn I had crazy anxeity that when I explained to the doctor that my rational mind was telling me I was nuts but emotional mind was making everything worse. During this explication I started balling. She put me on meds safe for pregnancy (not a med taker) and this helped my edgy episodes too.

Avatar f tn This may be more of a mental health question than pregnancy, but I have extreme anxiety every time I go for a dr appointment. In March 2010 I almost had a heartattack from diet meds my dr prescribed for me (severe tachycardia an I had to be rushed to the ER with the paramedics having to take drastic measures to keep me from having a heartattack). Needless to say, it was traumatic.
Avatar f tn Hi! I can understand your apprehensions. During pregnancy, the levels of progesterone and HCG need to be maintained. If the HCG levels are doubling every 48-72 hours (you must get this done), then chances of pregnancy carrying forward is reasonably good. In this case you can ask for progesterone supplementation through injections. You must also make it clear to the doctor that you would want to carry this pregnancy forward.

2100308 tn?1388500439 Is it normal to feel depressed and suffer from anxiety during infertility treatments? I feel happy, sad, angry, recentful, anxious, pessimistic at myself and sometimes the world. Do you think the hormone pills can be affecting me? I'm normally a happy go lucky person. Definately not my normal self.
Avatar n tn I use to have the best appetite in the world.
Avatar f tn I think your pregnancy and your horomones are playing a very large part in your feelings of anxiety. You didn't say if this was your first pregnancy, but if it is, I thinks it's really "normal" to have some fears about being alone. I know I did during my first pregnancy when my husband would leave. I became quite afraid that something would happen when I was alone and spent most of the day being anxious. Are you a military wife? If so, that might be a contributing factor.
Avatar f tn Most women do feel this way from time to time during pregnancy. hang in there and I promise, this is a true blessing and you will be fine. Hopefully you have a supportive partner that you can talk to and can reassure you.
