What to Expect When You're Crazy

Anyone else think it is bullshit how they scare the crap out of pregnant women? I mean, as if we don't obsess and analyze every little pain or cramp as it is! It used to just be that damn What To Expect When You're Expecting book that told us every tiny little thing that could go wrong. Now we have an internet database full of shit that could go wrong when you're pregnant. I constantly look up symptoms to see if they are related to miscarriage, cancer, death, etc.

Dizziness, feeling light-headed. A common symptom during pregnancy. Could also be a sign of low iron or anemia. See also low-lying placenta. See also placental abruption. See also ectopic pregnancy.

So it could be normal, or I could be dying. Whichever.
