Hi, I Just found out that I'm 5 weeks and 4 days Preggo and counting!
I'm unbelievably excited, and extremely nervous....
I feel like I'm in shock.
I live hundreds of miles away from my mother, and I'm so afraid of going through this alone.. I'm afraid that I'll mess up, or eat wrong or be around smoke for too long...

Mostly i need advise,
I'm pretty young, and not married, but i have a supportive and loving Fiance. (I've been engaged for a year and a half now)
At any rate if anyone has any advice for me or help, i will cherish every word like GOLD!

Thanks to ALL!

Welcome to JM!

It sounds like you might be due in November? We have a November Due Date Club where you can meet other moms due the same month as you and talk about what you are going through.

My best advice is to try not to stress about the little things. Do your best to keep you and your baby healthy. As long as you aren't purposely doing things that could harm your baby (smoking, drinking, etc) then you'll be just fine! I hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months!

I feel ya on the living away from mom thing. I needed my mommy during my first pregnancy. I don't have sisters or anything and I was the first of my friend's to have a kid (most of them STILL don't have kids, my daughter's 5). I hope you find the support you're looking for here Welcome to JM
