What are my chances of a healthy pregnancy?

After reading of so many things that can go wrong in pregnancy, I need a little reassurance. I'm 21 and never had a baby before. What are my chances of a healthy baby?

  • 21, no previous issues
    chances are high

    you may see lots of stuff on here about issues, but more people ask when problems then ask when things going fine

  • Pretty dang high. Just try not to freak out over every little thing and follow doctor's orders. You are young and if you are healthy as well then you should be fine.

  • As long as you have no pre-existing health issues, don't drink, smoke or do drugs, eat somewhat healthily, and get a decent amount of exercise: very high.

  • Well unless you are drinking heavily or doing drugs during pregnancy or have some pre-existing medical condition the odds you will have a healthy pregnancy are pretty much more guarenteed than passing your driver's test. If you're doing one of the first two things you have no business having a kid in the first place. If you don't...congrats you'll probably have a nice easy and healthy pregnancy

  • Very good.

  • If you find (interview & hire) a maternity specialist like a midwife, work on healh-safety-prevention, prepare (classes, books, et) and avoid unnecessary risks (including the birth setting, test, interventions) then you greatly improve your chances.

  • The chances are incredibly high. Healthy pregnancies are by FAR the norm.

  • As long as you listen to your doctor and eat healthy your child will be just fine. This is all normal Mama so don't worry..
