Welcome to parenthood. You’re going to worry about your baby for the rest of your life. Literally. So you may as well get used to it now. The truth is, you can’t know that baby’s okay in there. You won’t know he’s okay with the babysitter either. Or at college. Yes, there is stuff that can go wrong. But, there’s a much better chance that everything will be just fine and you’re on your way to having a healthy little mini-me (or -he). The best thing you can do right now is focus on staying healthy and following your doctor’s recommendations. Our advice: Try to stay positive, don’t read the scary stuff without a good reason (like if your doctor tells you that you’re at risk for something specific), and ban yourself from all of those tragic stories on the Internet. After all, this is a time when you should be celebrating — not stressing.
