Being irrational?!?


So I'm now 33wks with my 3rd baby and I have never felt so scared / nervous about the birth. My first was quite a bad birth but didn't overly affect me as I didn't know what to expect anyway, my 2nd was the perfect labour and couldn't have asked for it to go better. I keep thinking something is going to go really wrong this time round. I think I have this in my head because my pregnancy has been one thing after another plus I have gestational diabetes, he is measuring quite big and I could possibly be induced so I guess this is all a bit different for me as both my other 2 were spontaneous labours. My other 2 were both big babies also for my size but I wasn't diagnosed with GD in those pregnancies. I have also had people tell me that the 3rd can be as bad as the first labour. I just can't get rid of this feeling of fear which I have never had before. Anyone else feel like this? Xx

No experience of feeling the same way, but just to say both my labours were induced and it really isn't too bad. I mean, I have nothing to compare it to, but people always make out it is horrific, and I definitely survived both times, so please don't let that worry you

Just wanted to send hugs , also try some hypnobirthing cds from now . They're really helpful. I use them even though my baby will be a section. I used them last time and ended up having a csec but found that I could use the stuff I learnt to keep me calm in theatre !!

If a cd is a bit of a faff , then you could always get an audio book on your phone . I have one and it's very good . Or even type birth hypnotherapy into YouTube and there's lots there too . xxxx
