  • The second time. Only because it was so fast and so many complications. I just was worried if she was going to be okay.

  • The first time was pretty easy as far as labor went then they told me I had to have an emergency c-section. I FREAKED and was soooooooo scared. I thought I'd be more mellow with the second a planned c since I knew what to expect but I got the shakes super bad once they started prepping me. So they both had me really nervous.

  • The first time I was waaaay overdue, so I was more than ready, even though I had no clue what it would be like. 2nd time, I was induced, and excited about it. Now the 3rd time, I went sooo fast, hubby had gone to work, etc etc etc, he almost missed the birth, etc, yeah, that was the worse "nervous" for me.

  • I think the first time because I'm almost positive my next one won't be 35 hours!

  • well i haven't gone into labor the 2nd time and am not even pregnant yet, but i wasn't scared at all about having a baby the 1st time(i guess silly me didn't think it was going to hurt and it was going to be easy), but i had 3rd degree tears, so i am already nervous about having another baby.
