First-Time and Anxiety Stricken!

I am an african american female who has never traveled out of the U.S. My husband is from Nairobi but hasn't been home in some time. As our trip gets closer (39 days) I find myself more and more anxiety ridden. My questions have now irrated my husband so I am reaching out to others. I have been reading the forums constantly and researching everything that I can but I'm still nervous about what to encounter. I have already had my mind blown regarding the possible bathroom situation. Being a full-figured woman "squatting" seems like it will be a real challange. Basically can someone give some advice on how to address this fear and embrace the trip. Or if there are any african-american women who have been in this position words of encouragement. :) THANKS
