At Will’s special needs MyGym class there are three women who are pregnant.  I talked to the husband of one of women on Monday.  I congratulated him and asked him how he felt.  He felt anxious and fearful.  It brought back memories from when I was pregnant with Lizzy.  I gave him the advice I wished I had gotten eight years ago.  Don’t give in to the fear.  Try to enjoy it.  Babies are special.  You do everything you can to keep your child safe and try not to freak out.

In my case, I gave my husband very specific instructions.  He was to follow the baby regardless of what was going on with me and make sure she didn’t receive a Hepatitis B shot.
