    Hi Girlies,

    Is anyone else getting more and more nervous as the weeks go on?

    I'm really starting to get worried about labour - just feeling unprepared to enter the unknown! :shock: feel really silly but cant help it.

    Funnily I am not remotely worried about labour, I'm sure that will change when I get to 30 weeks plus though lol xx

    I'm not worried about labour as such cause I know I have to do it, and it means I'll be so close to meeting my baby. What does scare me is if she gets stuck, once the head is out there's no going back so it makes me panic at the thought she won't come out :( x

    Think of it like Christmas Eve, you're about to get the best present ever! I can't wait, I doubt I'll be saying that at the time though!! You'll be in good hands, have plenty of drugs & well it's gotta come out so not much point worrying about it!x

    I like to think about how billions of women before us gave birth successfully without the help of pain relief etc so we have got it fairly "easy" in comparison to many women centuries before us hehe :) x

    My thoughts now are whatever happens, whenever it happens, it's definitely GOING to happen!! It is going to hurt, but I am going to get through it, and the thought of the little bubba at the end is what I'm going to focus on :)

    You actually only ever hear the bad stories and just recently a few people have told me how its ok and they even enjoyed it. A girl at work has just come back from mat leave and loved her labours and had no pain relief.

    I thought I would be terrified, but funnily enough I'm not. I think its because I know that it just has to be done, there's no getting away from it!

    And as one of the other ladies said, you only ever hear the bad stories - plenty of people have a great experience.

    Bit nervous this time round (didn't even think about it last time), but just hoping for a non-emergency situation. Women and babies died of what I had in my last pregnancy (and still do, tragically, although obviously not in the same numbers as in the past).

    Ending on a positive note - lol - a friend of mine had two wonderful, pain-relief-free water births at our local birthing centre. I'm trying to keep this in mind...

    I'm actually really looking forward to it. I don't know why. I think it may because I refuse to listen to scary stories or go to any of the classes. Ignorance is bliss and I'll deal with it when it comes. I don't have any expectations. I may feel different when it gets closer, but for now I'm feeling very relaxed about it all.

    I look at labour as inevitable and the pain etc all coincide with the mechanism of labour and how the baby gets into this world safely.
