Your emotions during weeks 29 to 32 Conquering anxiety

In just a few weeks, you'll be responsible for a new human being. That fact is probably really starting to sink in this month. As a result, you may be feeling anxious and overwhelmed, especially if this is your first baby. To help keep anxiety at bay, review the decisions that need to be made before your baby is born. Is your baby going to see a pediatrician or a family doctor? Are you going to breast-feed or use formula? If your baby is a boy, are you going to have him circumcised?

They may help you get some rest, and doing them now will be good practice for the big event.
