  • It will be ok hun I promise we all go through those strange fears especially when it is the first one. Your tummy will get big but it will go back to normal in no time at all especially if you breastfeed and you will feel at times like you can't breathe but when that happens just sit down and relax. You will get through this just fine and as far as delivery goes get an epidural and you won't feel shit!!

  • first off relax and breathe. This is an overwelming time in your life. If you planned the pregnancy or not. Hormones are going crazy and life seems jumbled all around. Yes, your belly will grow. You have to make room for the baby. But as long as you follow the doctors orders it will not get to big. You may feel like it is to big but the doctor will be the one to determine that. Everyone is different on how much weight they will gain. Don't starve yourself because you think you will be to big. That baby will take all the nutrients from you to get what it needs but you still need the nutrients also. Feel free to pm me with any questions or if you just need to talk.

  • ur belly will get big but u will be able to breath. u will just huff and puff not because ur lungs are squished but because u are going to be carrying around a lot of extra weight. i gained over 50 lbs and i could still breath and do long walks so ur going to be fine. and dont be scared about the birth. with both of my babies i wanted an epidural. each time i never got one because i just progessed wayyy too quickly and by 7 cm u cant get one. and i am a huge sissy and i could take it (and i mean i hate papercuts).and sure it hurts but once its done ur like "thats it?" because the way some pple talk its like its pain that can kill u. it hurts but its sooo doable and bearable esp when u get something like a baby after it.
