Try to Relax


It's common for many women in their first trimester live with the fear of miscarriage and other pregnancy complications. If you have concerns, take the time to inform yourself about the signs and symptoms of any potentially serious problems but don't focus constantly on the possibility of miscarriage or other issues. Staying positive is healthiest for you and your baby, and the chances of a healthy pregnancy are in your favor. Also, remember to pace yourself on getting ready for baby. Nine months is a long time, and you don't need to buy tons of baby products and set everything up just yet — especially if you'll be finding out the baby's sex and having a baby shower later on.
