How's everyone doing? Any updates? Struggles? Victories?
I'm feeling much better. Therapy has helped tremendously over the past couple of weeks. My therapist also got me in to see a psych. who specializes in biofeedback. So she's going to teach me ways to calm myself down when I'm having physical anxiety symptoms. I don't know a ton about it, but I know they hook me up to monitors so I can see my heart rate, breathing, etc. I'm hoping that will just be another tool I can use when I can't take the medication I normally would.
For the first couple of weeks I was struggling so much with this pregnancy. We planned and tried for it, but when my anxiety and depression skyrocketed, all I could think was "I don't want to be pregnant anymore." Now that I've worked through that period, and am feeling better, I can say I am so incredibly excited to be pregnant. Nervous, but excited about adding to our family. The ultrasound this week sealed the deal for me.
