First off let me say CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Being a mommy is the greatest feeling in the world. Next, it will all be okay.lol. I know how scary it is, don't stress out over small stuff. The best advice I have ever been given is don't tiptoe around them when they are sleeping, they will be a light sleeper. I made as much noise as needed with both of my boys, and to this day if I need to run the vaccum cleaner and they are asleep in the floor, I can vaccum around them. Any other questions please feel free to ask. My name is Jenny, and I will help as much as I can. But just remember, it is ok.

Just make sure to give up your entire life for the baby!!  Get no sleep or peace.....  LOL!!  You'll get used to it and just go with the flow.  Don't put too much pressure on yourself to be perfect.  Mom's the glue that keeps it all together so try not to get too stressed.    Let the laundry go and accept help from anyone who will give it to you.    And remember to breathe....this is the biggest challenge you'll ever face and you'll do fine....

CONGRATULATIONS! MY ADVICE TO YOU WOULD BE TO ENJOY YOUR PREGNANCY&KEEP ALL YOUR  APPTS.  TRY TO EAT HEALTHY&NOT EAT FOR TWO  THAT IS WHAT CAUSES THOSE EXCESS POUNDS.

I know how you feel...I was totally freaked out about being pregnant!  What kept me calm was thinking ahead to after the baby's born.  I thought of all the fun things I could do with her.  I also kept telling myself that this pregnancy would be over before I knew it.

As for labor - mine was long but, believe it or not, it was a piece of cake.  And it's over in hours, not 40-ish weeks!

Congrats and good luck - you'll love being a mom.
