this is baby number 3 for me and my pregnancy has been "textbook" perfect, just like the last 2...im 4 weeks from my EDD and suddenly find myself quite anxious and almost scared of delivery. My last two were somewhat "natural"....as in I had CFM, and an IV but no pitocin, induction, c section or epidural\pain meds. this time i am planning on delivering without CFM, an IV etc...basically 100 percent natural except in a hospital because homebirth is not an option here...my dr and the nurses at th hospital are VERY supportive of my plan. why the anxiety i have no idea my mind keeps going to all the what ifs.....what if something goes wrong anf i need a c section (im terrified of having a c section) what if because im not doing CFM we dont realize the baby is in distress and something bad happens to her...lack of oxygen so she has brain damage...what if she is born with DS or some other impairment...why this anxiety? why now? these things never once occured to me when i was pregnant with my other 2 kids.....sorry...no real point to the post i guess...just needed to get it out.
