hello there, this will be my first baby also (fingers crossed) so I can't really give you any advice. Have you attended any pre-natal courses yet cause I think those would be really helpful. Also the ladies here will be only too happy to help out with any questions you may have
1st baby never met lost at 8 weeks

Congratulations on your pregnancy!
I've got a 6 month old daughter and before i had her i didn't know how to do ANYTHING with babies. I'd never changed a nappy before as it grossed me out (i'm almost 25), never made bottles, never bathed or dressed a baby, never got a baby to sleep...nothing! As soon as she was born everything came naturally and people are there to help you!
Even now i'm still learning but it's great and now i can't imagine life without her!

I think a lot of first time parents have worries about not knowing what to do, but your instincts do kick in when baby arrives and you keep learning every day.
Are there any classes in your area or is there any sort of post natal support to help you with some of the practical things?
Wishing you loads of luck, I'm sure you will be just fine!! But if you have any questions just ask away, there's always someone around to try and help. xx
After a horrible few years, life is good.
