I dont know how it feel and will never experience this joy koz im a man but i think you must keep your calm and avoid being nervous. Mnay women has already passed through this phase and you too will overcome it succesfully. You must keep away from ill habit like smoking or drinking during this period koz you know it will be hazardous to the health of your child. Less household chores and more rest is advisable.

Welcome to My Lot. Good luck in your pregnancy, I hope that it and the birth will go well for you. It is best to eat a healthy diet to help your baby and make sure that you don't gain too much weight. You could have an ultrasound to check on your baby's well being. I suggest reading a good pregnancy magazine to put your mind at rest over the different issues. My son is now 2 months old and he was born this May. The best thing I did in my pregnancy was join a class of expectant mums. The six of us are still friends and have tea at each others houses. I need not have worried about the birth. It lasted about 2 and a half hours and of this I only had strong pain for twenty minutes. I had planned a home birth and got this but not my water birth. It all happened too quickly for that.
