Hi! I'm 31 wks pregnant with 2nd child & suffering from night time anxiety. I fall asleep then wake up anxious & feel scared I'm all alone & how long the night is. Now in the early eve i start feeling anxious about going to bed!
I've been to doc but in the uk they rarely give meds to pg ladies & tbh, I don't want them. I've started cognitive therapy & practise all the relaxing techniques going. Sometimes they work, sometimes not. I know the key is to accept less sleep as pg & let go of trying to control it all. I will sleep when I sleep but god, the anxiety can be so consuming!
Anyone else pg & suffering & if so, how do you cope?
