I guess take it one day at the time and enjoy because even though some of you might be very uncomfortable you will miss it.

Express your worries on here if you don't feel comfortable doing it IRL. We understand what it's like and it always feels better to get stuff off your chest. Don't bottle up your worries.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy

Take "charge" at your appointments and at delivery. Trust your instinct and don't let anyone make your decisions for you. If you don't understand something, ASK! Don't try to please others with your decisions, do what YOU want to do.

Also, read about postpartum depression (from baby blues to severe) and make sure your SO knows about it too. Statistically, 85% (or more) of women fall somewhere on that spectrum. And I think we are more at risk because of the stress we have been under before and during our pregnancies. Its so hard for someone who has wanted to hold their LO so desperately to admit that they are feeling bummed out. I really felt guilty about it.
