Me and my husband will be entering USA for the first time so we are worried.

Answer
Hi,

It will not be a problem to enter the U.S. in F2 visa status while pregnant, unless the immigration inspector determines (based generally on your admission) at the port-of-entry that your primary intention is to produce a U.S. citizen child so that you can be sponsored by this child in the future when the child turns 21 years of age.
