I would be freaked out by someone who isn't scared. Labor is scary you never know what to expect. I'm in my 3rd pregnancy now and I'm scared also!

I was scared during both pregnancies.  I think its just natural to feel anxious.  Its an important day and everything is going to change afterwards.

In vain he thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts.

I think its normal to be nervous no matter how many kids you have :).

I wouldn't worry about being scared/nervous.  You body has generations of information on how to do this.  Where both of your other deliveries good ones?  Positive affirmations can make all of the difference.

 Of course it is normal. It will be okay - enjoy as much of it as you can, you're bringing a LIFE into this world - that's a big deal  :)

Good luck and congrats!

 I think it is a normal feeling. I was nervous but I never got to feel what labor was about. I had a schedule csection.

Honey I have 5 and I am STILL nervous about the 6th.  Just remember that you have done this before and draw strength from that.

 I was never really scared but then again I LOVE labor and that makes me weird lol.

 I think its normal to be axnious but try to focus on the postives bc the negitives will make it worse than it needs to be! You are a pro now:)

I think what you're feeling is normal. I have a 4 year old and a 17 month old I'm I'm 4 days overdue with a boy. I'm scheduled to go in Thursday night to be induced. I've been nervous about giving birth each time but more nervous with this baby since I'll be trying for a vbac.
