The emotional experience of pregnancy is different for every woman. It's common to have mixed emotions and to feel uncertain-even if your pregnancy was planned.
Because of the increasing hormones and the fatigue of early pregnancy, mood swings can be worse than before pregnancy. Many women worry that their baby will have a problem. Or they may feel anxious about childbirth.
Your relationships with family and friends may change as you adjust to having a new family member.
