Anyone else petrified?


I am 31 weeks pregnant with my second and the last few days I am getting so scared and anxious of having to go through labour again! I am hoping it's a phase that will pass! People I have spoken to about it just tell me I did it before I'll be fine which I know is true but can't help being petrified!!

I was too but I'm at that point now where I just want this baby out of me so the thought of labor is welcomed right now lol

I'm a c-section mama, but I still have the nerves too! The thought of all the needles. Ugh. The IV, the needle before the spinal, the actual spinal and then the recovery. I'm so concerned for the recovery! Especially because I have to go out of town for the delivery and will have to travel back right after a c-section. I'm very nervous.

I'm much more scared this time...ignorance was bliss! BUT everyone I've spoken to says once it starts you feel a lot more in control because you know what to expect. That's what I'm hoping for anyway!

Ohh I'm so glad to see this thread... I am SO scared to do it again! I powered through like a champ last time epidural free and... omg no, okay, it was awful.. and I'd really like to skip the epidural again mostly because I had back pain for years afterwards and this may be the last time I go through this again so I kind of feel like I should... and my husband wants me to... but I am so afraid, I don't feel ready at all. I keep waiting to hit that "I'm done I dont care how you get out.. but GET OUT" feeling.. but as much pain as I am in with this pregnancy, and as much as I so wish I could bend over and breathe at the same time again.. the courage is not here I'm honestly freaking out.

Omg, ticker says only 25 days to go..

Me! I'm starting to freak out a bit now! Especially since I'm measuring 2+ weeks big and LO will be close to 10lb at due date 😬 I'm hoping to all hope that I go early! 😂

Thanks ladies! I am so glad I am not alone! I was questioning how I would be able to get the job done if I feel like this already but speaking to you all has given me hope!!!

Not scared, even though people keep trying to convince me it's going to hurt SO MUCH and I should get an epidural. (not gonna) I'd say ignorance is bliss but people have tried to pound this into my head.

Still not scared. Just feel it'll come, it'll pass, and I'll be cuddling my daughter soon enough.

Yep I'm scared this time! I was scared with my first baby then for the next three I was fine but this one I'm scared because my last labour was awful, I was rushed round to high risk, baby had pooped in my womb and they were trying to put cannulas in my arm and failing miserably and asking for urine samples whilst I was in full labour, the bed had someone else's blood on it, and my baby girl was so big that I really struggled to give birth to her the pain of her moving down was horrendous with her big head lol felt like bones scraping I didn't think I was going to be able to get her out, problem is for my size they reckon she was a fine size but giving birth to her was shocking so this time they feel I can have another big baby but I think if this baby is any bigger I'm really going to have problems!
