Hello Everyone:


This is my first pregnancy and I am due September 15th. I am so excited, we have been trying FOREVER and I finally got pregnant with IUI. However, I am experiencing a ton of anxiety. I just seem to worry about every twinge, worry when I feel sick, or when I don't feel sick enough. Every test I get done I go crazy about the results. Anyone else go through this? Any advice? Thanks, ladies!

It's so scary to not know what's going to happen. The best thing I can suggest is to focus on the positives and hope for the best with the baby. Then go back to doing what you were doing before you found out you were pregnant! I still worry and I'm on my fourth pregnancy.

More likely than not, everything will be FINE!  Look at the odds!  Your chances of positive results in everything are way higher than there being a negative result.  It's always easy to focus on the little what ifs, but try to stay focused on the much larger possible turnout.


Congrats!  We are due date buddies, btw.  :)
