Obsessive/compulsive/worry Type of Personality in a 6 Year Old

Hi everyone. I'd like to start by saying that my 6 year old is such a pleasant, beautiful kid. Over the past several months, we have noticed the worrying get out of hand.

Morning Sickness and Other Pregnancy Symptoms

Also, does anyone have any morning sickness advice besides crackers...

During my 6th month of pregnancy I started passing out a lot, at least every day. My heart rate was dropping into the 30s which made me not get enough oxygen and my bp would drop causing me to pass out. My heart always would speed back up and I'd be fine. After having my son the problem continued and 3 months later I got a pacemaker. I have now had it for a year and have...
