Good luck Beggy. Everyone on here has been lovely and answered my silly questions. Do let the midwife know about your anxiety. Also I found the book Expecting Better, by Emily Oster very helpful for giving me hard facts on everything from Foods to avoid through to premature birth. It depends on your personality but for me knowing the precise risks and percentages was really helpful.
Yep, enormous amounts of clear or creamy white discharge here too. I have anxiety about personal hygiene and HATE it, but it is definitely normal and is mentioned in lots of the more forthright books about pregnancy.
I can second Emily Oster's book 'Expecting Better' as someone who is anxious to know all the facts.
Has stopped me worrying about silly things like caffeine, deli meats, the odd glass of wine etc. most of what you're told not to do in pregnancy is nonsense as there's no evidence to support the stupid advice we're given. The exceptions which are bad for baby are: smoking, liver. And you must take go folic acid for first 6-12 weeks.
