Quoting Mommeh2bee:" I'm 37 weeks and 4 days. I'm so scared to give birth as the due date nears my anxiety rises!!! I wish I could skip it and just have baby"
I was scared also.
Try not to worry too much. I have panic attacks, and I was SURE labor was going to be awful.
I'm not going to lie, it wasn't "fun" but it wasn't the worst thing in the world either. I was really worried about the pain part, and while it sucks, you have so many other things going on...and you're so focused on getting that baby out...you don't have time to dwell on it.
My Epidural failed completely, and I would STILL do it again. And it's true what they say, you forget all about everything once that LO is in your arms.
My sweet little man is exactly one month Today, and the labor (or at least the pain part) seems so far in the past, I don't even remember half of it.
You will be just fine, and it really is SOOO worth it!!!
