reading the october DDC birth stories. I have no idea why but I am sooo freaked out right now that something will prohibit DH from being there and I will be all alone in a car giving birth. Call it hormones but I cant read those birth stories anymore (even though none of then had to do with anything that I am freaked out over).

I tend to avoid the birth stories, but mostly because every woman and every delivery is different.

I've had a couple dreams where I went into labor and ended up giving birth alone at home before I was able to get help. Maybe it's just me... but it made me feel better to educate myself on how to handle such situations.

David was born in a car so it's a joke in his family that his kid will be too. That's not exactly the tradition I want carry on lol. The hospital we have to go to is 50 minutes away and it definitely makes me nervous since I have no clue how quickly I'll go.

I've been worried about this, too! We're literally blocks from the hospital but I'm so worried that for some reason DF will not be able to make it for one reason or another. He's always working out of town/state and I'm already stressing out about something preventing him from being there.

I enjoy reading them to a certain degree.
I think for me, they do bring on a little bit of anxiety.

Call it what you will, but I think first time Momma's can have a fair bit of fear associated with the unknown, ie: birth!
Not all births run text book smoothly, we know that. But reading the birth stories,in atleast every second one, there is going to be a comment about some thing the mother didn't like or some thing that was a little confronting. By the time you're done reading 5-10 stories, you've potentially heard about 3-6 things that can be daunting or scary. Hahaha... And we seem to go away thinking, every single one of those things might happen to use, where as realistically, maybe only one or two will.
Does that make sense?

I love reading them, but I limit myself to 2 at a time for those reasons above haha.

Oh yeah I love and hate reading the birth stories from the other DDC's I have read both amazing and horrendous stories. I'm so intrigued but at the same time don't wana know about the births!

Being a second time mum, to be completely honest I'm MORE freaked out about going through it all. And my first birth story/Labour wasn't even bad!

Like a previous poster mentioned we will all have our own unique birth stories and many of them will be problem free!
