I did, I was afraid of rupture even though I knew that there is only a 1% chance. I think it was just normal to have those feelings.

I would remind myself that I felt I was in great care and if any emergency happened we were right by a fire station (i can see it from my bedroom window) and 10 minutes from a hospital.

the main worry for me is hemorrhage. For some reason the thought has been plaguing me lately. I think because of the off-on spotting through this whole pregnancy. I'm going to talk to my midwife at my next appointment just to ease my mind. Meanwhile I'm just reminding myself that I only live 4 blocks from the hospital and chances are it won't be a big deal if it happens at all.

I really have to ditto Inyourhonor....

My biggest worry is rupture... I keep reminding myself that I will know if something isn't going right and that I have a great care team. I also keep reminding myself that we are only 10 minutes from the hospital and that DH is an EMT so he can handle stuff if need be.

I did have a couple moments, usually in the morning after waking up to a dream that was a replay of some of the things I saw as a RN on a L&D floor (one ending with dead baby). I guess I almost knew TO much of the what ifs and stuff....some times I DO think ingnorance is bliss. I finally just used my hypnobabies to kind of turn off my nurse part of my brain. But then again...that nurse part kicked in BIG time when I was pushing and I used it to make my pushes more effective and ended up delivery him myself!!! And I'm SO PROUD OF THAT!
