Do you guys all worry about your baby when they finally get here that things might not be right? I have been really worrying about my baby's health lately...like if she willbe blind or death or have ADD or things like that? The tests they do during pregnancy if they say your baby is healthy is that a really reassuring thing????

I have had some of those thoughts just recently.. As it's getting closer to baby time I have been worrying that something might be wrong... Even though i've had a million tests on everything and it has all been fine...

so it must be a mummy thing, but i wake up in the night like thinking what if! I think working at the maternity hospital doesn't help becsue you see and hear alot of things.
I hope all our babies are happy and healthy!

yeha i would have liked tohave gotten one of the 3d scans alos, but they are just soooo expensive. The 2D scans are pretty good at picking up deformaties etc...my friends baby had a hair lip picked up ont he scan.
I think i am worrie dbecasue not having my ex around i havent been able to find out his family history, so i dont know what genes he has...if that makes sense.

Well up until a few weeks ago I was using a face wash with sylic (sp?) acid in it. When I first got pregnant I read not to use that but I assumed that was in the perscription acne medication and face washes and I don't think I even bothered looking at mine. Now I'm paranoid that using it for 7-8 months could be damaging. They've only done studies on rats where it caused birth defects. I try not to think about it though.

I worried more with my son then with my daughter since I wasn't really planning on getting pregnant with my son. My daughter was planned. I worried my entire pregnancy and even after he was born because I use to be a go out every weekend and drink. And they say that the most important time in a babies developement is during the first trimester. The doctor tried to reassure by telling me that he would have a higher chance of having something wrong with him should I have been doing this every single day. So the likely hood of anything being wrong with him due to my fault was slim. I still made myself sick. Then when he was born I worred about everything. I now worry about 2 kids

My husband has add, there is nothing wrong with it except that the media and shows make these kids and people out to be monsters.

I worry sometimes too. I work with special needs kids and I love them dearly, but it really brings to home the hardships of raising such a child. If for some reason your child is not "normal" whatever that may be, you will adapt and learn to adjust. You will love your child just as much as if there was nothing different. Don't worry. In the end it will work out.

Well I've taken all the tests which were available to me, the blood tests, the Triple Test, the anomaly scan, and so far I've been told my son is healthy, with no visable structural abnormalities, and at low risk of developing a birth defect. So as long as you take advantage to all antenatal care, then you're doing your best. Noone can ever guarantee you a healthy baby; try not to worry. :)

im not really worried about Tyler having a birth defect, im more worried about him having an big ugly birthmark, on his face or something like that, have you guys ever seen those shows on tv? it will be the most beautiful parents that have the most beautiful kids but then they have a HuGE ugly birthmark

Y'all are perfectly normal.. You are worrying about your baby because it is something you can't see or touch yet.. Once that beautiful baby comes out you won't care if they are purple with three legs, you'll be in love immediately and you'll say what was I worried about???

This kind of goes along w/ the Biggest Fear topic going on right now too. I know EVERY mom must worry about things like that--actually the worrying never stops even after they are born. You then worry about their development, their social skills (are they liked at school), are they safe, etc, etc, etc.......
But you will love them no matter what and continuing that is all that really matters.....

Well...I was just reading a post on some forum the other day and a woman lost at 28 weeks and had to deliver.

Ever since then I've been afraid that he's just gonna die inside me.

It kept me awake nearly all last night... He's really hurting me lately too...but I suppose that's a good thing, eh!
