      I have to get up in six hours. My father in law is in town. My T has been flaring up to a high pitch whistle the last few nights, making it hard to fall asleep. Tonight it started to make me panic again. I wanted to tell my spouse to let me stay at home, let me sleep. I don't know how to handle this at times and tonight just sucks a**. I started sobbing in my husband's arms tonight. It hasn't been easy over the last nine years and my T getting worse felt so damn unfair. I'm happy for the first time in years and this flared up and it felt like it ruined so much. I'm 31 years old and don't want to feel like my life is almost over. I don't need to be in a quiet room to hear my T, it's loud. So, when it gets louder, I can't find anything to tame this beast. Any supporting words or suggestions are greatly appreciated, even if you're a dude and can't fathom being pregnant with this.

      Thank you for reading my ground hog day post. Can't watch that movie anymore.

      Hi zombiechick,
      Sorry to hear your having a tough time with your ears that is most likely down to hormones.
      Long relaxing baths and lavinder on your pillow and milky drinks can help relax you and sleep and maybe sound therapy also or a fan on.
      Lack of sleep can bring your emotions down so might be worth chatting to your doctor or midwife to see if there is anything you can take for sleep.
      Try have some nice treats and a power nap in the day or feet up and go at your own pace .
      Hope your feeling a little bit better with some sleep and do your best not let your ears get you down but I know It can be hard going at times.....lots of love glynis

      @glynis-harbron thank you. You could be right about the hormones being a culprit. A minute ago I tried to distract myself with what he may decide to be when he grows up. Eating banana right now. The midwives told me to try meclizine. The benadryl made me anxious. I take zoloft, they put me on it when I was freaking out. It helps me cope better but it doesn't really help with the panic attacks at times. Just trying to stay calm right now. Stay calm for my son.
