Our expert says:
Sounds like a classic description of an Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder --- and fortunately it responds well to treatment, by CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) and medication. As you are pregnant, find someone who can start CBT ( as one would be cautious about using medication during pregnancy ) and you could be feeling relief soon, and can complete the job later by adding the medication to the CBT. No anxiety drug would be appropriate, and there should be caution about antidepressants during pregnancy. Do NOT work on this with a GP, but arrange to see a good local psychiatrist as soon as possible, and you can make all this go away, and then look forwad to enjoying a brighter freer way of life, and enjoy a happy life with your family and child
