Re: Best time to take parenting/child birth classes? advice?
[ Edited ]

Hi! I'm Angie. First of all, congratulations!  I am pregnant with my second child right now.  When I was pregnant with my first, I felt the exact same way you felt.  I was terrified because I didn't know what I was doing.  I never changed a diaper before or babysat a baby, but believe me it will come over time, just prepare yourself!  Look up those classes online in your area, I am sure there is something, just call them and make sure you find out if they take your insurance.  Secondly, take everything one day at a time, you have a long way to go before you bring baby home, so give yourself a break!  Thirdly, rub lotion on your tummy EVERYDAY, otherwise you will get a lot of stretchmarks but if you use lotion everyday, that won't happen.  Congrats again!  Enjoy your pregnancy!  I'm 6 weeks also :smileyhappy:
