Hi I am 19 weeks pregnant with a much wanted and planned baby. However, as the pregnancy progresses, I am literally haunted by feelings I've never had in my life. I cannot stop crying. I feel guilty for my 13 year old. It was always just us, her whole life. We are so close. Now I'm going to be moving in with my partner and having a baby and I feel like my daughter will suffer. I shouldn't be changing everything that she knows! I can't sleep anymore... I get up during the night and can't bear to lie down with my own thoughts. I am so overwhelmed by these feelings that I want to scratch my own skin off to escape them. I pace the floor for ages but I am so tired. When I feel the baby move, I get upset... Because then I can't put it to the back of my mind anymore. I have to face up to all of these changes. I don't know what to do... I'm going to discuss with the midwife but I am terrified I am going to be left feeling this way long term. I am so very upset and I don't feel like I'm normal. This should be a happy time but I'm acting like a crazy person. Would love some advice from people who have Been through similar.
