Can anyone help me...I have a 1 1/2 year old son and am thinking of getting pg again but i am concerned that my anxiety will affect my pregnancy i know that when i was pg with my son i had never felt better but i just want to know that other women have done this and felt ok after delivery.. I know my anxiety really kicked in a few days post delivery and just was wondering if it happened to anyone else and that they are ok and happy with two children.. I guess this is common to second guess everything right?  Please help me...I need to know that this will be ok...thanks

I say if you want it go for it...I think any resulting anxiety would simply be out weighed by your wonderful children. Remember if you are on any medications sometimes these need to be tweaked as some meds are no good for people who are preggers. I am sure others will be by with more advice too.

sometimes beingt pregnant stops all anxiety and panic attacks, but not always
I knew 1 anxiety sufferer who haqd 12 children for the peace she go when pregnant
 
otherwise pregnancy can be difficult

I think you'll do great. I have 4 children. During my pregnancies my anxiety and panic was barely there. I was a bit more anxious and panicy after giving birth but it wasnt unbearable. I find being pregnant gives me a lot of relief from the panic and anxiety. (maybe thats why i had 4 lol) Good Luck to ya hun
