nola, I'm not getting into a lame internet argument. This is my last word and I'm done with this thread. But, guess what? I *am there with the OP right now*. I'm not condescending to her or anyone else at all, because I am living that reality. I was *sick* with worry and stress and even crying some nights and not being able to sleep just like the OP, until I dropped it. I know it is mostly beyond my control if something happens, so worrying does *nothing*. If you still see me as being condescending, then kindly, that is not my problem.
So, you can think what you like, but unless the anxiety is completely selfish, then yes, it *can* indicate a tendency towards being a helicopter Mom. If you're worried about your baby now, how worried will you be when the child is born?
Life is filled with *risk*. Look around if you don't believe me. There are lots of reasons to be anxious and to worry, and not just in pregnancy.
OP, this thread isn't about me, but you. Use your own judgment and make your own decisions. I don't care. Was just trying to help. Take care and I really hope you feel better. It really sucks to live with this fear.
