I am newly pregnant and I am having a lot of issues from my childhood resurface. My husband and i just moved back to the town i grew up in and my parents are nearby and I have a lot of issues with them that give me anxiety moving into becoming a mother myself. Is this normal and where can I draw the line ??

It actually is normal to have childhood issues resurface during preganancy. That happened to me both pregnancies.  I went to a therapist and talked a lot about those issues and it really helped.

I also had unrelated anxiety and doing prenatal yoga helped - and it helps for labor and delivery too!

 i think that is probably normal if you had a bad childhood. i would see a therapist to deal with  these issues if i were you.
