I understand that. Thats normal. Every pregnant woman worries, and worries even harder if something happens to another pregnant mommy thats around her. The only thing you can really do is take the very best care of yourself.

Thanks guys. I'm hoping to here from someone soon on how he is doing. I'm so glad to have people on bg that can help calm my nerves. I've seen so many success stories but I guess its just hard being a first time mom.

It is so normal to worry. Almost all of us in my family came early so I panicked my whole pregnancy. I was induced at 41 weeks lol. I hope your cousins baby is ok. I will pray for him. My sister was 1lb 9oz at birth she came 10 weeks early in 1997, she has a whole foot on me and is extremely smart! Science has come a long way, I will still pray!
