  • Since you have neglected to mention the source of your fears, I don't believe that any of us can help you. Sorry.

  • Each labor is unique. Just because you had a bad experience the first time does not mean you will this time. Did you have an epidural? That helped me get thru my 2nd. It was a much better experience.

  • i was in labor with my first for 12 hours and i pushed for almost 2 (and had no pain meds what so ever) then with my second i was in labor for 3 hours and pushed 2 times (drug free too) yea the contractions semed more intence then my first but i think cuz w/ my first it came on graduly and it was so fast with my sec. What did hurt more with the second was after birth every time i breastfeed i would have contractions that felt like labor contractions.. other than that it was fine the more u have im sure the less hard it is. The first kinda clears the way for the others

  • You have plenty of time to educate yourself about birth since you are only 23 weeks. Go check out some books about birth at the library. Read, read, read!

    And know that after the first birth, subsequent births are generally easier.
