This is going to be my second baby, and I feel like I'm way more nervous about the birth this time around. I think part of it is because I DO know what to expect. Like how contractions feel, how long it can take (12 hour labor last time), and all the work involved. But, I think the other part of it is that I DON'T know what to expect. My first birth was a full on hospital birth with meds and interventions out the wazoo (okay, maybe IN the wazoo). This time around it's going to be a low key, med free, home birth, hopefully in the water. So, on one hand, I've had a baby... but I haven't had a baby like THIS before.
Anybody else feeling more nervous the second time (or more) around, for whatever reasons?
Or has anybody else gone through a hospital birth, and then a home birth and feel anxious about the differences?
