Being a mom can be scary – here are some of the more unconventional mom fears.
As a new mom, I realized that there was so much to be scared of. Actually, the fear began when I was pregnant. First, make it to 12 weeks where the chances of a miscarriage drop dramatically. Then stress about hitting that golden 26 weeks, where the babies chance of survival should he or she come early skyrockets. Then worry about movement – is it enough? Too little or too much? Pray you get to full term, then when will the babe will be finally coming out, and then worry about your delivery. You’d think that that was it, but no, then you have to worry about SIDS and whooping cough and an unbelievable array of other terrifying potential deaths that are clearly hiding behind every corner. Never Google anything related to your child – good or bad. If you do, you’ll soon be in a ball in the corner, rocking with your incredibly vulnerable new baby in your arms, muttering to yourself.
