girl i was nervous with my last baby he is 18 months old i guess our fears are we hope everything goes right and nothing is wrong with our baby soon as labor starts your nervousiness will start to go away you know you have to think about the baby being born good luck to you and stop stressing things will be over soon so enjoy your little time left of being pregnant do other things to keep your mind off the labor fix babys room and get out with your family they will be your biggest support right now

Try to relax, and don't let anyone tell you their horror stories! I kept an open mind and didn't have any expectations of what labor and delivery were like. Everyone kept telling me I'd know I was in labor but when I was I wasn't certain because I was still walking and talking and feeling fine, the only reason I went to the hospital is because I started bleeding and my doctor wanted to check me. I walked into the hospital and was joking with the nurses, they actually were talking about sending me home until they checked me and realized I was already 7 cm dilated.

I was very active through my pregnancy so I definitely think that helped with the process going so quickly. You can tour the hospital where you will be delivering so you can see, the nurses are more then happy to answer any and all of your questions, my doctor called the hospital and scheduled it for me. I know it's easier said then done but try to relax, trust your doctor, but most of all trust that your body will know what to do when it's time! Good luck!
