This is what i am starting to worry about. I went to the doctor on thursday cause i am having another baby with my ex wife and we were told that the baby has a white spot on its heart. No big deal is what we were told and its not its a calcium deposit on the heart not a thing to worry about there. This is what is really getting to me they neglected to tell us on thursday that the baby also has liquid around the kidney. So we find this out and i start to worry about it right away the doctor said that i should not worry about it till they know for sure what is wrong with the baby. As a father i cant help but worry about this type of thing. Should i be worried or should i just leave it be for now?

It's ok to worry. But there are time that you will have worried for nothing. But that is a sign of a good parent. Just as the Dr. more Q if you need to. To help you feel better about the hole thing. Your friend onlydia

I think it is normal for you to be worried. As much as the doctors say not to worry, anything that is not perfect during a pregnancy causes worry. I hope that the doctors are right and it is nothing to worry about.

Of course as a father you will be worried when you hear news like this. Everyone wants their children to be normal and perfect. Just ask the doctor any concerns that you have about your baby. Try not to worry too much though because some things you can not control. As long as the baby gets prenatal care that is really all that you can do. I know it is easy to say not to worry, but try not to. Always try to keep a positive outlook on things. I hope your baby is fine. I never had this issue with my children when I was pregnant but I know how it feels to worry about your children. You are a good father. Hang in there. Hopefully everything will be fine. Pray and keep an optimistic point of view in this situation. That is about all you can do on your end.

As a father you are doing exactly as any loving father would do, worry. For now be strong and keep a level head because the babies mother needs you right now. Share with her your worries and feelings, do not let her think she is the only one who is experiencing them. Even though the Dr.'s tell you not to worry yet, you will. Try not to let it eat at you every minute of the day, keep it at the forefront of your thoughts but do not let it swallow your every waking moment. If you are religious/spiritual then take comfort in that and pray often with the babies mother, I trully believe that positive thoughts can go a long way during these times. I hope that all turns out beautifully and I will keep you and your family in my thoughs and blessings.
