  • I felt that way with my first pregnancy and he turned out great. I mean I still worry about him now. What happens if he chokes or fall down stairs, or if someone takes him...etc. The list can go on and he's two now. I'm pregnant with my second one and I worry every single day. I have a blood clot this time and a 50/50 chance of miscarrying, though. It's normal but you'll be fine :-)

  • I worried 24 hours a day and for NOTHING, my son is a good boy, smart and everything a mother wanted. don't worry for nothing, I don't know if your religious or not but the bible talks about worry, worry is like, you worry once it could be for nothing but if it is something you have worried twice for no reason at all.... I know I make no sense... so worry when its time.. don't worry when you have no clue. Be grateful for what you have at the moment. :0)

  • You don't sound stupid =P Every mom worries about their unborn child. Have you had an ultrasound yet? Those are pretty good for checking out defects and abnormalities. I'm on my 3rd pregnancy and I still worry (after having 2 full term pregnancies with no problems). Don't stress yourself out! Get a home doppler so you can hear the heart beat to give yourself some peace of mind.

  • Im a firm believer in "think positive thoughts and it will come to you". Anyways, your body will let you know if something is going wrong with your baby, naturally your womb is the safest place on earth to grow. When you get your bad thoughts try to catch yourself and think about the good, about the times when you come home and your child is so excited to see you that they jump in your arms and hug you, think about the first time your baby says mama, or i love you or makes their first step. Try thinking more good than bad or youll just be miserable your whole pregnancy

  • I worried all the time. I'm a worrier. But after 9 months my baby came out with all 10 fingers and 10 toes and completely healthy. I wish you the best of luck. And take it easy on yourself. Just by taking daily prenatal pills and eating healthy will reduces the chances of impared child GREATLY.
