I do!

From the moment labor begins, the drive to the hospital, getting settled in, laboring, delivery, after and everything in between! I'm not nervous one bit, but I am super excited.

After I had my babies I would daydream about the whole process and miss it. I would look back on pictures and videos to relive it.

I didn't think I'd be doing this again and I'm SUPER excited about it all!!

i'm excited about most of it, but terrified of the drive to and from the hospital! I'm a very nervous passenger, and we have to go through downtown Nashville, where things get really crazy!

Me!!! Oh me!! I love the excitement and the process and not knowing when it's coming! It's like waiting for Christmas Day, and a marathon your psyched to run and the huge celebratory dinner afterwards or something. I mean, it's awesome. Lol.

I'm super excited about labor and delivery and I've never experienced it before. I'm not nervous or fearful at all, I just cannot wait to meet my daughter.

Wow, can someone please pass me whatever you ladies are drinking??!! I am extremely anxious and nervous about the whole thing. I am trying for a VBAC this time around and really scarred about the whole process. Not to mention all the pre term drama I have been having. The only thing I am excited about is finally holding my miracle, my long awaited rainbow baby.

What are you nuts?!?!?!? haha! Only picking!

With DS, I was excited, just from having no prior experience and not knowing what to expect. But this time around I'm definitely more anxious. I wonder, will I want to do things the same way if I have other options, in terms of pain medications? Will this labor and delivery compare at all to DS's?

I can't say I'm scared, I know DD has to come out one way or another, but I can't honestly say I'm "excited" about it, and the mess that follows! haha!

I'm excited! I was so amped once I started pushing and after I had my daughter and really hope it's the same way this time. Labor really is an awesome experience and so empowering.

Im excited about the whole meeting my baby deal, not so much about the whole L&D deal. Im terrified of having a huge GD baby :c

Going to ask for a growth scan, but not so sure if I will get one :/ I hate living in a small city (glorified town)

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my super cute siggy!

I'm excited and nervous. I was super excited when I went into labor with DD, and couldn't sleep, so I am going to try not to let that happen again. I want to rest as much as possible. I am very excited about the home birth though.

I am excited to be able to have this experience! i feel it is something that is extremely emotional that I can share with my husband and will bring a bond even greater between us and welcoming our first born. I sound really cheesey but I am honestly very excited!

It's my first time and even though I'm a little anxious not knowing what to expect I'm still very excited. Trying to be on track with my hypnobabies home course which is helping me to settle into a relaxed state of mind without any fear. Can't wait to meet my baby!

I'm nervous because this is my first and, while I've seen women in labor, I don't know how I'm going to react to labor. I'm nervous about how the contractions are going to feel and how I'm going to handle them. I'm scared of tearing still and what that will feel like. I'm excited about meeting the baby and the new role of motherhood.

Going to faint or not, and most importantly, the PAIN!! Lol

Thank god we get the best gift in the world at the end of it all. I just want to hold this

I'm super excited about the outcome...but not the process..LOL. But that might be due to the fact the first one was a pretty difficult delivery.

OMG YES!! I am so glad to see your post about this Runner because how you described how you feel is basically exactly how I feel! I am not scared at all, just super stoked to experience it! I was actually starting to wonder if it was bad of me not to be at least a little scared, like it could ruin the labor or something but now that I see someone else who has done it twice before feels how I do it makes me feel better. Thank you!
