    So sorry to hear of your moms passing.

    I think EVERYONE is nervous about giving birth the first time!! I can see why you'd be extra nervous considering your age, and your mothers history.

    I assume you've told your OB/GYN about what happened to your mom... and I know they'd be extra cautious & keep an extra close eye on you due to that!!

    But the fact is, that you will most likely be JUST FINE!! Childbirth will start & end... usually in just one day or part of one. There is a "finish line" to look forward to & what a great "prize" you'll get in the end!!

    Do you have someone to support you during labor?? Boyfriend/husband, maybe an aunt or friend??

    Welcome & best of luck to you!
