I was not as nervous of the pain the second time around as I knew what to expect. at least I wasn't scared until I was in labor and almost ready to push lol. I learned some new breathng techniques and labor pain management the second time around and had plans, backup plans, and last resort plans in case the first two failed for who to leave my son with. I knew that if i went into labor nd no one was around to drive me i would call an ambulance. everything turned out fine. I went into labor at my moms group, my brother-in-law picked my son up from there, while one of the other moms drove me to the hospital. my first plans did fall through but everything worked out fine. good luck and congratulations!

I was but only because she was a VBAC and I was scared that I was going to end up with another c section. But everything worked out great. The third was even better.

YESSS...... I was scared for my first to tho ...but honestly the labour was amazing .. with my second I was worried about everything.. not so much the pain.. just everything else ... what if i went in labour when it was just me and my oldest ... she was 18 moths old when my second was born... who would take care of her til daddy or grandma got there?... what if it was much faster then my first... i would have the baby on the way there lol... my first i was only at the hospital for 2 hours and she was born..... then I was told my second had to be induced early .. what if there was something wrong... turns out I should have been worried about pain since nothing else that I was worried about happened,,, my second labour was much worse then my first.. I had piggy back contractions and they Dr and nurses actually told me to have the epidrul to make it easy on me .. i never dilated at all til i had the epidrul 7 hours after they started my labour .. having contractions every min on top of each other ... they way they worked were when one would reach its peak of pain another would start ..... .. anyways ... I haven't heard of many people having the same experience .. I am sure you will do great.....
