Let's share three of our fears about labor~~
I would say pain, but that was only with the first baby. Through my journeys with my three babies, the fears I would still have in a possible future birth would be having to have a c-section. We came very close with baby #3 because he was breech and we were down to having to consider what would be safest for baby: a breech vaginal (which I was leaning towards) or a c-section. Luckily he changed positions 3 days before he was born! It is still something that scares the bejeezus out of me! The second thing I would be afraid of would be something happening to baby or having a still born. Baby #3 was born with DS and were so lucky that he was born super healthy as we know others are not so lucky. The last thing that scares me is having a BIGbaby. It seems silly, I know! My second was almost 9 lbs and I was so afraid that my third would be like 12! I'm not sure my vag could handle that trauma...lol!
1. and emergency and having to have a real necessary c-section
2. loss of the child
3. length and pain
Having an unforseen medical emergency for me or baby.
Baby turning transverse.
Having a bigger baby than my 2nd. She was 10lbs 1oz and had some issues with shoulder dystocia. I didn't need to fear though... my 3rd was only 8lbs 13oz.
Oh wait... how about getting pregnant again? LOL After 3 babies in 3 years my biggest labor fear is having another baby any time soon!
The pain being so bad that I end up caving and getting an epidural.
My husband not being patient
Anything going wrong with the baby
