Hello all MTBs,

I'm going to be a first-time mommy and i'm feeling so excited about the experience i'm going to have for the next 9 months! Both my husband and i are really looking forward to our first (and maybe only) baby.

While reading up on pregnancy, i cant help but come across the risk of miscarriages and stillborn..and a friend of mine also tried to "lower my expectations" by telling me to not get too excited first in case i get overly disappointed if i lose the baby. I understand he wasnt trying to be malicious but just trying to be cautious, but i cant help feeling so depressed over the possibility of such situations.

Is it necessary to not get overly excited during pregnancy? I am scared of disappointment, but i am also scared of feeling scared all the time too. Any mothers out there feeling the same dilemma as me?
