Common: The hormonal levels of pregnancy frequently cause women to be very emotional and it is normal for good moms to be very protective and concerned about the well being of their child. If you feel that this is excessive talk to your doctor about possible counselling. It is also good to know that the risk of miscarriage decreases greatly after 12 weeks. Good luck.
