Ten Common Fears of Pregnant Women

“We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he/she is someone today.” – Stacia Tauscher

It is very common for most women to worry.  We’re worried about a lot of things.  From the basic stupid things like, “I have nothing to wear!” to “How can I save the environment?” and of course, the very famous, “When will I meet Mr. Right?

Can you imagine what more if a woman gets pregnant?

I asked some mothers and a few pregnant women and here are the top common fears that crossed their minds during pregnancy.

  1. My baby might develop abnormalities.
  2. I will look ugly and gain so much weight then after my body will deteriorate.
  3. My husband will be cheating on me.
  4. My sex life is over.
  5. I will die during delivery.
  6. I might develop post-partum depression.
  7. Raising a child is expensive.  We’ll run out of money.
  8. I might have miscarriage.
  9. My social life is ending.

10.  My husband would leave me to do the child caring alone.

Oh my, women!

Pregnancy can be stressful and especially more difficult if you are anxious or prone to panicking.  Do not focus on the negative things or what could go wrong.  You should not make a career out of worrying and do not obsess about it.  There are more chances that everything will be fine than not.  Take care of yourself and make necessary visits to your doctor.

“How simple it is to see that all the worry in the world cannot control the future.  How simple it is to see that we can only be happy now, and that there will never be a time when it is not now.” – Gerald Jampolsky
