I had my first baby exactly 17 months ago......and just to give a little history, for years I didn't want to ever have kids b/c the idea of labor/delivery terrified me. Thankfully, I didn't have any real anxiety during my pregnancy, and my delivery ended up being a really great experience - it's funny to be able to say that. I labored for 3 1/2 hours, pushed 4 times, and our little guy was here! I had a fantastic team - mom on my right side, DP on my left side, and an awesome L&D nurse. I got through it without the epidural, which I never thought would have been possible. I had a couple of stitches that never bothered me, and my recovery went really well.
Fast forward to now. I'm 32 weeks in......I probably shouldn't even use the word "nervous" b/c I'm not sure that truly describes how I feel. Maybe I'm a pessimist! I feel like it went so well the first time, there's no way it could be as easy the second time. I felt like Super Woman after my first delivery - if I could deliver a baby w/o drugs, I could take on the world! But somehow I'm a little anxious about it. I'm not anticipating any issues and we're delivering at the same hospital. I've had another healthy pregnancy and I'm excited to meet the new baby. Has anyone been a bit more anxious/nervous during a 2nd (3rd, etc.) pregnancy/delivery?
