... of giving birth. I am really scared it hurts too much ( as im trying not to go for an epidural ) .. and im scared i wont get over my coughing and i will just cough through labor pains and it will drain me from all the energy and maybe i will be just too weak to give birth at all. I do want to meet my little one already, but at the same time im panicking and thinking maybe im not ready to meet him yet. All these childish fears piled up together - how long will the pain last.. when should i go to the hospital... am i able to handle the pain... is my baby going to be okay... etc. i just feel its so close already...

((Hugs)) everything you are feeling is normal. This is my 3rd and I am nervous, too. But definitely the 1st one is scariest since you really don't know what to expect as far as pain goes. You and your baby will be fine.

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.

It's is only fear of the unknown. Once it starts you will be ok. I understand your fears. I was terrified with my first, but all turned out ok and I have a happy healthy 2 year old daughter This is my 2nd and I'm still nervous, but the doctors and nurses are trained professionals who will take care of you and help you stay calm and strong.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my amazing siggy!!!

I agree. This was my 2nd but first vaginal birth and i was nervous. I was okay though, and you will be too. It is scary when you do not know what to expect but once it starts all your fears will go away and you will do what you need to do. The nurses, doctors and midwives are there to help. You and baby will be okay. Just think of all the people who have babies and are okay. Soob you will be one of them.

Totally normal feelings! I've heard a lot of women go through these last minute fears and then bam they have a baby. You were made to do this! Do you have a doula and good support? I've read hundreds of birth stories and affirmations everyday, but I am scared too. Admitting it and talking about it will help you through though. <3

Totally understand I am starting to get nervous about everything. My good friend was induced yesterday and I have been a nervous yet excited wreck all day thinking of her. Imagine what I'm going to be like when everything starts.

But as they say millions have done it before us and I can't wait to meet my little girl at the end of all this I'm sure we will all be fine

thanks ladies.. i know that my panicking is not going to change a thing, but it doesn't stop me from doing it I do have a supportive BF, who will be with me during birth, but i have no idea, what midwife or doctor is going to be there. It depends on the shift. I do hope i arrive there on the right time with friendly people around.

I was nervous for the first and even more more nervous for the second. For the third I've been doing hyonobabies and I have no idea if it will work in labor but at least it's calmed my anxiety about giving birth in the meantime.

Totally normal! You'll do great! This is my second and I'm still nervous so while it might get better with second, third, fourth babies - it is still normal to even be nervous for those
