  • If you're worried, go to a doc or midwife that will see you now. As far as an ultrasound though, you really can't see and problems until 11-12 weeks.

    If you don't have a history, take a deep breath! I'm sure everything will be fine.

  • I actually didn't have my appointment until I was 13 weeks preggo... I didn't know I was that far along. I was more just waiting for a miscarriage (it was my first, and I'm pretty pessimistic)

  • Try to keep yourself so busy you won't have time to think about it. Buy a baby book/memory book and write about your pregnancy. Buy things to decorate the Baby's room with. Think of names. Enroll in a lamaze class. You have many months to go- try to make this enjoyable instead of worrying/stressing.

    I wish I could redo my pregnancy. I spent way too much time worrying and what if'ing everything. Just relax and enjoy, what will be, will be :)
