Discussions that mention xanax

Pregnancy board


I know it:) Just found out this past Sunday-4/2! it's going to be my first so my initial reaction wasn't what my hubby anticipated...tears of fear! still terrified as to not having done this before, i have NO idea what to expect......what changes when, how will it be with our relationship of 13 years (6 married) with a new person in the mix, etc! Each day i am getting happier and more excited. I have my first appt next tuesday, 4/11. my fears are that before i knew i was pregnant, i was taking 1 (very low dose) of xanax a day, eating tuna salad every day since i was on a high protein diet and not taking vitamins. I just hope and pray i didn't do anything to my baby! I hope i can carry it to term too..have been reading so many people experiencing miscarriages. I seem to be about 5 weeks pregnant according to the pregnancy calculators. We're going to tell my parents next weekend when home for Easter. We got them bibs-I love Grandma and I love Grandpa....they'll be first time gparents! We'll tell my husb's mom the weekend after as she's away for the holiday. she too, will be a first timer.

I'm also concerned as to all the do's and don'ts of pregnancy....

lunch meat?
acne medications (OTC only)?
regular sodas (one a day????)
not scooping cat litter?

all of which i've heard not to do or in moderation....you know about any of this? I'll ask my doc next week but am building up with more and more questions as the days go by:)

well, congrats to you.....i'm hoping you'll be able to guide me thru some of the unknown as you've been there..done that. I hope to make some new friends here as we share these next 9 months together:)

Get a copy of "What To Expect When You're Expecting". That was my pregnancy Bible when I was pregnant with my son. :)
