    Just wondering if I am odd or whether anyone else is excited about the labour & birth? :eh:

    I know we are all excited to see our babies at long last but I'm actually quite looking forward to the whole experience. Provided it goes fairly smoothly of course!

    I'm looking forward to experiencing what it all feels like and seeing how I cope. I also think giving birth is such a cool thing to be able to do, I feel so lucky :)

    Does anyone else feel like this?

    kind of yes. I'm not that scared, more intrigued and excited. Esp as I plan the whole homebirth thing...I know it's going to be super painful but somehow very amazing too. eeeeeeeeeep!

    Yes! I cant wait. People ask if im scared etc. But no, im just excited to bw at home when things start happening (hopefully) and go to the hospital with my bags and car seats and experience the wonderful thing called labour and child birth! Eek! Can not wait to see what contractions feel like and to get that feeling of love when I see my baby for the very first moments! :-D xx

    I am excited especially about meeting baby but got to admit about being a little apprehensive as well - but that's cos I know what to expect lol and I really hate the pushing stage. Not worried about the pain of contractions at all, I just really hate the pressure you get down below when it's time to push and that's not even painful, just uncomfortable so don't really know why I dislike that bit so much lol. Also I'm gonna miss being pregnant - gonna miss my bump and feeling bubba moving around so trying to savour these last few weeks - though you'd never believe it with all the moaning I seem to do lmao :-D xx

    Yeah I know what you mean. I think I should be making the most of having her all to myself for the last bit, once she pops out I'll have to share her :(

    I'm feeling more nervous that anything. I tend to go through phases. I think now I have 5 weeks to go, I'm realising its not that far to go. Eeek. I thought my antenatal classes would make me feel worse about it when we learnt about the different stages, but I actually felt a little better.

    Im the same ladies, im curious about the pain & what a contraction will feel like, sound like a sadist lol. Bet il change my mind when its all happening though. got first ante natal class tonight so i will prob be more terrified after that. I just hope i get to experience it & have a normal delivery, reallllly want to avoid a c section!! Baby better get its ass in gear & move right way round in the nxt few weeks! x
