Hi Ashley. Feeling that way is generally normal. I was terrified of the labor and delivery. All my friends had shared their stories and it scared me even more. I was told myself that there is no way I'm ready for that step yet. Losing sleep isn't as bad as you think. If your going to be on maternity leave, sleep every chance you get, even baby goes to sleep, you sleep or take a shower lol. I wouldn't stress or think about labor/delivery yet. You still have a ways to go and you can always take a class for it. I would highly recommend taking any classes you can related to parenting or birthing or even positions for when in labor to help ease the pain. I will tell you this last thing, I am a mother of 2, when labor/delivery came around the 1st time, I was nervous when I got admitted but my nurses were very helpful and helped to try to keep my calm. Doctor broke my water both times, once those contractions hit, its like the worst period you've ever had times 100! One thing that really helped me was anyone who was in the room with me had to be quiet except for the nurse and doctor. For me it was more relaxing to be in a quiet place especially when having a contraction. Make sure to breathe when the time comes. Last thing, I had both my children with NO epidural and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be as weird as that may sound. If you have any questions about pregnancy or labor your more than welcomed to ask.
