Pregnant and scared

From: TS


I am just a couple weeks pregnant with my first child. I was just wondering how the other pregnant ladies coped with the anxiety for 9 months. I'm so scared about how much body will change and how it will feel and especially about my checkups. All I keep thinking about are the "what ifs" It seems like the more research I do about labor and delivery, the more scared I feel. The last time I was rushed to the hospital I kept have seizures until they took out the IV. I am so terrified of the IV and blood tests bc I know the same thing happens every time. Usually when i go to the doctors I take a tranquilizer to calm me down but now that I'm pregnant it is not allowed. I haven't told my family yet either bc they were so opposed of the idea just because they are nervous for me. Any words of advice would be appreciated. thx :)
