Re: Any parents-to-be find them selves constantly worried??
Hi Aerosmith <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
I felt the exact same way as you do when I first found out I was pregnant. This will be my husband and I's first pregnancy so I was pretty worried at the beginning. "What if I'm not really pregnant? What if I wake up some morning and see a bunch of blood? What if my blood tests come up with something bad? Why am I having that pain in my side...is that normal?" I near drove myself crazy the first couple of weeks. I'll be 11 weeks along in my pregnancy tomorrow and during these weeks I've come to realize that stressing out doesn't help me or the baby. The best thing I (we) can do right now is get plenty of rest and relaxation - not just for our babies but for ourselves. These last few weeks have been great and things are going very smoothly so far. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> I find that reading posts online and various pregnancy books has really helped to put my mind at ease. "What to Expect When You're Expecting" is a wonderful book, as well as "A Child is Born".
Hang in there - everything will be fine. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
