Fears of giving birth early — The Bump
2nd Trimester

Fears of giving birth early

I have this constant fear I'm going to give birth prematurely. I went for a 4D ultrasound yesterday at 25+3. She was beautiful. She was head down like she was in all my other scans. I can feel her moving around near my pubic bone. Should I be worried she's head down and really low. This is my first pregnancy and don't know what to expect. Is this a normal fear?

Re: Fears of giving birth early

  • You will have tons of fears in your first pregnancy, that is normal. Hell, you'll have fears in all of your pregnancies but there is no way to tell your baby's position or potential delivery time frame based off what you feel her doing. Your OB should be giving you information at your check up's and if you have concerns about her being low then I'd voice those at your appointments. I wouldn't worry about this though.

  • I had a constant fear of have a premie with my first because I had lots of contractions that needed to be monitored on occasion...went 11 days overdue.  Baby can be head down and low one day and in a completely different position the next, or low until you're 42 weeks along.  It doesn't mean anything about when you're going into labor!

  • I know it's crazy, but I'm always afraid that I'm going to cause labor by trying too hard to poop. (Don't flame me, I know it's nuts.)
    Well, it is a similar feeling...

    That's what makes it crazier....I have another child. I didn't have any of these fears with him.

    I am due Feb 23rd and I am nervous about snow and ice conditions as well.  There are some resources available about having an emergency delivery at home which I pinned on pinterest *just in case.* Because you just never know!

    I live in the NYC suburbs and am delivering in the city. I am terrified of going into labor during rush hour.

    I have always been afraid of this too and it almost came true. My second came so quick we barely made it and I delivered her 30 minutes after arriving at the hospital.
