  • You can always call in if you feel like it's important.

    But reading books on this subject, taking classes, etc., can help you to know what is going on, what is normal.
    Are you doing anything to prepare?

  • I am 13 weeks pregnant with my 5th child so I can tell you is IS normal to worry about the baby some. You can't see it or hear it of feel it at this stage and that can make you wonder. It is not normal to be consumed by it. In the next few weeks you will most likely start to feel little flutters and that will ease your mind!

  • this is normal! a baby is growing in your belly for the first time ever, your hormones are out-of-whack and you are about to be a first time mom! i was worried a lot too. My mom wanted me to have an abortion (when she first found out) and my sadness of her lack of support and fear of being a first time mom was portrayed in scary nightmares for weeks. and reading the "what to expect" books got me worried because they had a long section of "if something is wrong" questions and answers. Try not to focus so much on the "what ifs"! I recommend you buy a prenatal yoga dvd to help you relax, join a first time mom support group in your area, see if cafemom has a group in your area!

  • Stop reading all those scary articles and books about the billions of problems that affect like 2 people on the planet. My SO took the books away from me. Way less freaked out.
