Were you worried about labor and delivery with other pregnancies, or just your first?

I'm pregnant with my third, and I have to say, I don't fear labor and delivery...I BEG FOR IT. LOL! I really do not enjoy being pregnant, so delivery is the finish line for me and I look forward to it.

I was nervous with my first because I didn't know what to expect and was worried that I would be the one woman in the world that couldn't do it...but well, it turns out that's not really "a thing".

  • I'm with you mama! I'm PRAYING for my labor to start! lol...I forgot how much I hate being pregnant! lol
    With my first, she was born 4 months premature and I ended up having an emergency c-section so I never really got to the worrying part lol

  • Idk... I think i worried more with my last 4 than my first - to me, with my first, I didn't know what to expect... with the other 4 I knew how bad it was. LOL. Epidurals were my best friend...

  • Yeah...I can see where if I knew I was having a c-section, I would completely panic. That curtain would not fool me. I would know they were cutting me open and that I was awake. I don't think I would be okay with that. LOL It is actually my worst nightmare.

  • This will be my first and I am definitely just ready to have him already. I'm sure I'll be a nervous wreck when I am actually in labor!

  • I was worried with both of my pregnancies. With my 2nd, I was having twins and there are lots of ways for delivery to get complicated.

  • Honestly the only thing I was worried about with ANY of my pregnancies was labor starting when I was out and about... But I was induced all 3 times... Had 3 pain free deliveries. Never any worries... I always just assumed my doctors knew what to do - and they did.

  • I was a little worried with my first. With my second there was NO concern, she was a planned C-section. Any other children I have (doubtful) will also be a planned C-section.
