Has anyone had worries that their baby might die I had a really bad birth and 9 wks after she had a water bubble come up on her head been looked at by 4 diff people all say she's fine and it will go down but since I'm worrying things are wrong with her when she's fine I'm just panicking has anyone else felt this way about there first born I didn't think I could have children so she is a very wanted baby I'm hoping this goes away and her bubbles goes quick then I can relax

Yes, actually, Donna.
It's ok. Relax, honey! If you are happy with what the physicians have found with the bubble, and she's progressing normally otherwise, you are doing just fine.
My eldest had a type of a cyst appear a couple of days after he was born. I had him examined, and 3 docs told me it was just fatty tissue, and would go away. I didn't pay much attention until at 17 months, his dad picked him up, and the tissue 'popped'...the next day I took him to his new pediatrician, showed the difference between the before & after (I'd kept photos), and was referred to a surgical specialist. The specialist said "it's got to go, we'll schedule the procedure". At 17 months, my baby was put under, cut open, and had his twin removed from him. I cannot recall the exact spelling but it was something like "fetus enfetro"...a condition where twins are conceived, but one is not viable, and is absorbed by the other.
I swear, I spent the first two years telling myself that he wasn't going to die, that he was going to be just fine. My husband told me when I got to be too much of a basket case, but it was tough!
But, honestly? I'm sure you will do just fine being a momma! Hang in there, don't be afraid to call the nurse helpline, and don't be afraid to ask questions!

Most mothers are overly concerned about their first child. it's all new, you're terrified to do something wrong. It's a huge scary thing when you're suddenly completely responsible for another person. That's completely normal. And even more so when things aren't textbook picture perfect.
That being said, if you think this is an extreme reaction, you should talk to someone. Your postpartum hormones can affect you in many ways. It's not just depression or feeling like you want to hurt your child, which is what you most frequently hear about. There's a wide range of things that can happen after you give birth and your body is attempting to level itself out again. If it's really affecting you, I would suggest finding someone to talk to. There are many helpful people, organizations and support out there for moms who are having some problems. Your doctor would be able to point you in the right direction :)
