Ok, so as it draws closer and inevitable, I am just getting more and more petrified about giving birth. I was in denial about the whole giving birth bit for ages, but then I went for ante natal classes, both NHS and NCT and learnt all about the pain relief, coping etc etc But in the last few days I've become really really scared about it, I don't know how I'll be able to cope and it makes me want to cry when I think about it. Is this normal - or rather does anyone else feel this way? It feels very selfish, as of course I want to meet my baby, of course I know it has to come out, but I don't know how I'm going to deal with the actual getting it out thing!!
