hello again, Im sorry youve had such a horrible time with your ex and im glad they put him in prision away from you and ur baby.
erm yeah im starting to get abit like that, like if im walking and theres some kids mucking about i get worried one will fall into me. I do sometimes get worried if im around people who have been drinking aswell and even when i think someone looks dodgy i think what if they attack me... So by the looks of things yes i am a worrier. I dont hold my bump yet as when ive got my coat on i dont look pregnant.
I think as times goes on il get worse xx.

Yeah I'm a bit the same too. I'm a very nervous person and if i'm on the bus I panic that someone will elbow me in the bump and hurt the baby. I got an card through yesterday for a colposcopy appt in march and phoned them to say I wouldn't be able to attend (as adivised by my GP when pregnancy got confirmed) and the lady said I had to come in anyway so they could take a look. I totally freaked out and phoned the GP in tears cos I was convinced that if they even touched my cervix I would miscarry. The GP was great and calmed me down and said I didn't have to go but it really unsettled me. I totally understand your protectiveness and what's happened to you with your ex is awful and you're doing so well holding everything together so well xxxxxx

oh mylillamb i am sorry to read your post - your a very brave girl indeed and its totally normal be nervous after what you have been through - I know that people say you have to face fear etc but in your case i think whilst your pregnant you should take care and if you go out try and plan for someone to meet you or be with you
I am sure you can get councelling too or at least i am sure there is a help group of something - you are a victim of abuse and so it should have been automatically offered to you when all that bad stuff happened- god men like that should have their balls removed!
please dont put yourself in "stressful" situations it wont be good for you or the baby

I think you get more protective the further on you get. I think it has alot to do with our instincts as mothers to be. I'm extremely protective of my bump and have been pretty much since I started showing, but definately more so now I'm nearly at the end of my pregnancy.
It's strange because in bed sometimes MrBooter raises his knees up by my bump and I always wake up just at the point that his knee is about to make contact with my bump and manage to shield it in time.
I am naturally very clumsey and although I'm always protective I still end up walking into things or drastically misjudging tight spaces.Lol!
