  • Worries are normal :) It would be abnormal if you didn't worry! I worried about going into early labor. I didn't, and my baby was perfect and healthy. Good luck!

  • i never feared that. you need to trust that you've taken care of your unborn. i did and had a perfect healthy baby

  • Its totally normal. I feared that with both kids. Just try not to think about it. Your odds are very good that he/she will be fine. All mothers think it though.

  • Totally normal. try to relax about things that are beyond your control anyway. Focus on decorating the nursery or hanging out with spouse/friends. Your baby will be wonderful. By the way, this continues when your child starts walking, gets check up's, first fever, flu, first day of school, etc...

  • It's normal you will worry about your child even the day of labor until you actually see your baby healthy you will learn to relax and then you will worry the rest of your life lol I mean we are moms or moms to be and that's what we do best worry about our children.
