1st Trimester

my irrational pregnant woman confession of the day

I'll preface this by saying that I know my thoughts were completely irrational, but I'm sure there are plenty of others hiding out there who have the same kind of irrational worries about various things, so maybe you won't feel so alone now. Or not, and it's just my OCD acting up again ;)

Last night I went to a concert (NOFX - any other punk rock mamas out there?). It's been a long time since I've been to a good show, so I didn't really think anything of it. The opening act had started by the time we got there, and as soon as we were closer to the music I started to get all antsy because of the noise and the floor vibrations. I was briefly convinced that I was going to damage the embryo because my uterus would vibrate and it would somehow detach (I'm embarrassed to even type that!). I spent a good 10 minutes googling about it and finally managed to talk myself down from the ledge.

I thought the anxiety during the second pregnancy would be easier...

The worst part was that the show didn't end until midnight. I felt like an old lady leaning against the wall stifling yawns!

Re: my irrational pregnant woman confession of the day

  • Isn't it crazy the things that go a pregnant woman's head! I was at bootcamp the other day and I didn't want to lay on my stomach or run too hard because I didn't want to harm the baby.  I know damn well that wouldn't happen but the thought kept crossing my mind!

    I fear the the gestational sac will detach as I'm sneezing. I also have crazy thoughts.

    Yes! I really, really enjoyed it. I can't wait to tell the embryo that his/her first real show was NOFX :)

  • Yay!!! NOFX!!!
    When I first learned I was pregnant I was literally scared of everything. I made my husband wash his hands twice if he even barely touched the cat. You're fine lady and those fears happen to all expecting moms. Its awesome you felt good enough to go to a show, I've barely left the house in weeks, because of the nausea.

  • The same day I got my BFP I went to the Sulime w/rome and cypriss Hill show... I thought for sure the baby was getting a contact high from all the smoking going on... i was pretty nervous too! I love NOFX by the way! :)

  • I was 11 weeks with my first and went to a concert, had similar irrational thoughts for a bit. I feel totally ridiculous for them now. But, I don't see myself going to a concert this time around, still. 
    NOFX! I had tickets to a NOFX show when I was about to pop. I just had to look at them go to waste! Lucky woman. :)
