I need some major advice. First off, I had no clue Cafemom existed until a few hours ago and I'm glad it does because I have not a clue what I'm doing.
I'm 33 married and my husband and I have pretty much been childfree from the getgo until I just found out 4 days ago that I'm about 6 weeks along from a home pregnancy test. Long story short, I called my ob/gyn and can't get in for about 3 weeks. I am however on a list to get in asap.
I'm terrified. I have no clue what I'm doing. I have no guidence because I have no family which means I have no family support (that's another story). I also have never been to an Ob/gyn before so when I go in a couple weeks it will be my first time.
I have a a few questions since my brain can't stop thinking and I'm a nervous reck.
1. ) My husband recomended prenatal vitamins until I get to the doctor. What exactly are prenatal vitamins? Do I need to be taking other things? I've been reading that I need to take prental vitamins along with folic acid. Is this true? What else do I take?
2.) I've read about lamaze(sp?) Is this something i will need to get into eventually?
3.) What happens if you decide not to get the flu shot while pregnant? I''m completly against the flu shot but was told to think about getting one in the mean time?
If anyone else can give me some advice that would be great. I am so nervous - you have no idea. I have no "support." and I also have never been around anyone who was pregnant so I have no clue what to expect :/ Any advice or help would be great.
