Pregnant and extremely jumpy. Can there be a medical reason for it?

Hi, I am 6 weeks pregnant and extremely jumpy. I get startled at the smallest noise in the house, is there a medical reason why the pregnancy could be making me so jumpy? It would be nice to know that I have not just lost my senses! I had a miscarriage a few months ago so perhaps I am more anxious with this second pregnancy. Thanks

Thanks for posting your query
You are absolutely right, this condition is due to excessive preoccupation about the pregnancy.
Your concern is genuine and would help for to be protective but at times too much of a good thing can also be bad.
Pregnancy itself causes mood swings and anxiety state.
So the two factors combined can make you sick.
You have better consult a psychiatrist and learn relaxation techniques that can be practised during pregnancy.
I hope your query has been answered. I will be happy to solve your further queries. In case you are satisfied with my answer, please close the discussion and put a rating for it.
