So Im 36 weeks pregnant tomorrow and the realization that my baby has to come out is settling in. And I am so nervous! About everything from will I really be able to tell if I am in labor if I don't have the obvious signs (such as my water breaking) to what kind of dad will my boyfriend be. Hearing other peoples horror stories isn't so bad..im just worried that things will not go as I would like them to. I have the biggest fear of needles and i think that trumps my fear of the pain enough that I don't want an epidural. I will take the iv. That I can handle. But a huge needle going into my back in between contractions is so scary. One wrong move and I could be paralyzed for the rest of my life. Im sure every woman gets nervous before her big day. Its natural. I sure know I am.
