Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Relax, stressing out will not help. Talk to your doctor about your concerns, you might be considered high risk, but that usually isn't a big deal, it just means the doctor will pay a little more attention to how your body is overeacting to the pregnancy and perhaps make plans for you to see a specialist. Take good care of yourself and pay attention to your body. Unless you are having pain or bleeding, everything is probably fine. My mother had 14 pregnancies and only 2 children, I've had 2 children and I'm pregnant now, I've never had a miscarriage.

First remember that a miscarriage doesn't mean you can't have a child. Miscarriage is somewhat normal in a first time pregnancy because it's the body's process of eliminating something foreign from the body, especially if there is an abnormality in the fetus to begin with.  Don't worry if you don't have any signs of bleeding or discomfort. Worrying causes your blood pressure to be higher. Just relax and take it day by day! take care of yourself, take naps, eat healthy and drink a lot of water, and splurge on your cravings..... Enjoy being pregnant!!! the hard work starts at labor and when the babies come home!!!
