I'm posting to see if anybody else has any of the same issues as me. I'm 17 weeks pregnant and have already been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, I have a sub chorionic hematoma, placenta previa, and high blood pressure. I have just been stressing alot on what is to come and whether or not I will be ok during the pregnancy and birth and wondering how all this will affect the baby as well. I've been trying to take it easy and not do much or stress myself out, but I've also been worried about blood clots by my inactivity. My body already hurts so bad and I'm not even half way thru my pregnancy my stomach cramps all the time and I have some intermittent bleeding as well. My anxiety is in full gear and I'm trying to find ways to cope as medication is not an option I've been told. If anybody is going thru something similar or has been thru something similar I would love to hear from you for support. Thanks!View Thread
