I`m four and a half months pregnant with my first and I`m starting to feel really scared

Hi Alex, my question is am i going to be okay ? im four and a half months pregnant with my first and im starting to feel really scared. i dont know if im going to have everything organised or not and im really worried i wont be a good mum. sometimes i dont feel like this and im excited, but most of the time im really scared. but i look at so many mums and think, well they did so why cant i ? is this normal to be wondering if im doing the right thing ? i hate even thinking it, i feel like a bad mum for wondering. please help, i havent got anyone to ask ... thankyou !

Answer: Hi, This is a very common feeling in first time mothers. Every woman has to learn how to look after their baby and be a mother. If you do feel that it may be something more than this it is advisable to talk to your GP as soon as possible so that you can start getting help now. Best wishes, Alex
