  • i was. i was actually scared about sharing my love. I didn't know how i could have enough love for two. But I do. And yes i think its normal to be scared about labor and delivery. Having a baby is serious. I use to think what would happen if i died in labor, both of my children would be without their mother and then my crazy MIL would run their lives. Its normal. Don't stress - remember people do it everyday and my second delivery was easier. You'll be fine.

  • Yeah the second delivery is ALWAYS easier than the first. I can tell you this from personal experience, and everyone that I've ever spoken to with more than one child agrees... Mine second was actually significantly easier, honestly it was a breeze. Don't worry :-)

  • Sure. I was nervous because, after the first one, I knew what was going to happen! It went better than the first though.

  • My first labor was induced and a NIGHTMARE. the second was soo easy and went so smoothly I wished after the fact that I could have had the 2nd one first. If oyur first was bad TRY not to stress. Each labor is different.
