So i'm just wondering if any of you mommas had problems going into labor because you were afraid of the unknown?
My husband and i had our daughter die shortly after she was born May of 2009 (she had cysts in both kidneys with meant i had no fluid so her lungs never developed). We are currently expecting our second child any day now. I'm now 41 weeks. On monday i tried to address my fears about having another baby. My husband and i did some deep talking and praying about everything and i told baby that i was ready for them (we don't know the gender so i say them and they, but there is only one baby) to meet us.
Then tuesday i lost my plug and since then i've been having contractions off and on (tuesday night and wend night i had contractions all night, every hour and then sometimes they pick up to every 15 minutes and then go to be non existent).
My question is, could my fears be keeping me from going into full labor? Did any of you mothers experience this? I want to let things to their natural course and not rush baby, and i'm trying to let go of my fears, but i also am not sure how i'm supposed to do that.
Does anyone want to share their experiences or share some advice?
