I'm petrified!! LOL I wasn't all that scared with my first but then after knowing how bad it hurt, I was so scared with my second. And now I'm scared all over again. More so this time I think because I had back labor with both of my kids and about 3 years ago I suffered a back injury so I'm scared of how that make a difference with my labor. Plus, even though I didn't have an epi with either of my kids, it may not even be an option this time and that freaks me out too. LOL
Thank you Mrs. Jantzen for my wonderful siggy!

I'm a little scared, but mostly it's because of the unknown. I don't know if this labor will be anything like the induced labor I had with the twins. that was painful, but I could handle it.

i was so looking forward to having my baby that i wasn't really thinking about being scared. when i went into labor, i went home and called my sister and talked with her for an hour before going to the hospital. the emergency c section i had- i would have been scared of that if i would have ever considered that as a possibility.
in the future, i don't think i will be too scared b/c it will have to be a scheduled section & i have went through over 12 hours of labor and a section, so i know more of what to expect.
Thanks to *Kiliki* for my pretty siggy!

my first pregnancy i was scared. then it was nothing. With the 2nd i wished i had a c-section! he was 11lbs 2 oz no drugs 100% natural. I knew if I could do that then anything was possible. Its mind over matter, if you put ur mind into im not scared and I can do this then your body reacts positive.

Before Matthew I was excited about labor. I loved labor with Jeremy and Amanda. It was so easy compared to what I went through with my little Tank.

Now if I ever have another one I am gonna be scared to death. I told Dave today...joking of course...that IF I ever have another one, I am asking for a C-Section! In reality... I will refuse to be induced unless my life is in danger right then and there. Not a "what-if". I love Matthew and am sooooo glad he is here, but I wish my labor would have been more in my control. I felt like a lab experiement was being done on me with all those stupid needles and tubes.... I really think the induction is why it all went wrong for me. My little man was not ready no matter what the due date said. He still needed his comfy uterus and placenta pillow for a while! LOL
