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? Taking stock of where you stand on these issues will help you feel more in control of the situation now. Plus, it will make your new responsibilities seem less daunting once your baby arrives.
The anxiety or even the natural anticipation you're feeling about your baby's arrival may be making it difficult for you to get to sleep or sleep through the night. If you're feeling restless or anxious at night, try some of the relaxation exercises you've learned in childbirth classes. They may help you get some rest, and doing them now will be good practice for the big event.
