Hi. I'm new to this forum and to this experience. This is my first baby and I am 35 years old. I work in the healthcare field as a surgical assistant and my advanced medical knowledge is just scaring the crap out of me. In my 18 years in health care I have only seen 3 uncomplicated, normal births. So in my mind, there is no such thing as a normal pregnancy. Right now, I am having pain in my lower left groin. It is scaring the heck out of me because all I can think of is ectopic pregnancy on the verge of rupture. I know this isn't true, I'm sure its fine but I am so scared. How do I deal with this over whelming fear of losing this baby? I have never been pregnant before. I feel like an idiot.
