  • Honestly I was scared as the time got closer and closer to having my second child. I completely understand.

  • Sweets I am going to have my 4th any day now and yes I'm STILL terrified.  The pain I think is what scares me the most.  I don't have any "techniques" for pain management I just bull doze through until I'm too far into labor for pain meds, lol.  Not the best way but hey whatever works.  Know that you CAN and WILL do great.

  • I'm a little nervous about it, but I'll probably get worst later on in the pregnancy. I'm only 5 mos. now, but I can see it getting scarier. I'm more scared to leave my 1st child while I'm in the hospital :) But he's staying with my awesome in laws, so I won't worry too much. But I will miss him.

  • Nope not at all..
    Giving birth was pretty awesome! Was it pain free, no.. But i loved it..

    I always say its like climbing a HUGE mountain. Its not easy. its going to be rough. there is going to be pain but when ur 1/2 way up the mountain you can just stop or give up. You must finish! and when that last step/push comes you get a GREAT reward for all your work, and a feeling of huge success!

  • Well I loved giving birth the first time so I didn't really fear it the second. I did fear it a little the first time though. Really it depends a lot on how your first birth went I think and whether it was what you wanted to happen or not.

  • Yes I'm more afraid then with my first! I'm only 7 wks and that's all I can think about.

  • Nope I have an awesome OB/Gyn that I trust 150%. Not that it matters because there's a very slim chance I could even get pregnant again, but if I did no worries.

  • I am not scared of the delivery as much as I am scared that the baby won't be head down or the baby will be to large to give birth naturally. I am on baby #3 and with my first he was suction assisted due to being to large and he was 7 pds 11 oz. Not a large baby. My second was 7 pds 3 oz and come just fine. This baby can't seem to get head down and I am terrified, I don't want a c/s.
