...I know I have plenty. For instance, everytime I'm on the toilet I'm scared my baby will just fall out - especailly if I'm doing number 2 : ) I know that's crazy - my husband tells me to just keep flushing so the baby will fall into a clean toilet - he's obviously messing with me. But what irrational fears do y'all have?
That I will forget about new baby and be overly focused on DS. I am totally worried about the change in my relationship with DS so it scares me. But I had a dream I left baby in the car and took DS in teh house and then DF got home and asked me where she was and I left her in the car :-(
I have the one about the toliet too! LOL! My other one is Shaken Baby!!! I don't know about the rest of you and your doctors and hospitals but our hospital freaking terrifies you to the point where I am afraid to pick up my baby wrong or rock him wrong, etc. in fear his Brain will turn to jello! AAHHH!!!
Me (27) DH (38) Fury sons Brittanys (both 4) EDD 6/17/2011 BLUE TEAM!!!
This is my first but I'm sure I'll have the fear of neglect with the 2nd!!!
I'm so glad someone else has the toilet fear!!! I feel so silly for it.
I haven't heard anything about shaking yet but knowing myself I'll be so dang careful with him shaking/holding him weirdly won't even cross my mind!!! Although I do worry about bumps in the road shaking him in the womb!
I also think about the bumps in the road shaking her. The other day we hit a few and she elbowed me hard. lol. But my biggest fear is that she will come out a boy now that I have almost finished painting her room along w/a mural and bought all these interchangable hair bows and headbands and clothes.
HAHA I know my mom has apparently bought something that is extremely boy-specific and she keeps saying, "he's definitely a boy right?!" I can tell by your belly in your avatar picture that it's a girl though!
I have the same fear, I have had 2 ultrasounds saying it's a girl but I keep thinking she'll come out a boy just cause the nursery is pink now and we have all this girl stuff, hopefully my 3D ultrasound on Tuesday will put those fears to rest. :)
I'm afraid of my baby being born with a penis! And the worst part about this fear is that he's a boy! In the ultrasound it looked huge!! (the tech zoomed in obviously, but STILL). I told my husband that I hope its really really small and he got offended, asking me if I wanted our kid to have low self esteem or something... LOL. I told him its aloud to grow after I officially never have to see it again.
