If this is your first baby, ask questions here and those of us who have done this before will be happy to answer them if we can :)
Congratulations on your first baby! What an amazing ride you are about to embark upon!
Do you have people around you who can support you while he's gone? Is he travelling for work? Congratulations, Mama!
I do have a good support group here! My best friend (basically my sister) has 5 boys and lots of pregnancy experience and a I have a group of friends that know. My Mom is actually in Florida (we're in Minnesota) until mid-Dec so she's gone too. But I should be ok! He is from Tunisia - so he's going to visit family for a month. He planned the trip before we knew I was pregnant but it's actually pretty good timing because I don't want him traveling when I'm further along!
And thank you!!
I can agree with that statement. Early pregnancy is a bit obsessive no matter first or fifth, etc. This is my 7th pregnancy/baby and I am glad to see some moms of many here too - Physically, it is a different experience I think after you have had 5+ babies in some ways - but in other ways I enjoy reading through the eyes of a first time mother also, etc. if that makes sense, on other issues.
