Anxiety about giving birth and labor has just hit me hard in the last few weeks now that it's actually a reality that it WILL happen in the next few weeks (or days!!).
I feel like during my first pregnancy, I was living in a blissful ignorant state. The anxiety I did have was more about the unknown, but I was confident and maybe even a little arrogant about my capacity to give birth.
Now I feel scared, stressed and nervous. Ironically, my first birth was fine in all regards; maybe faster and more intense than what I would've wanted (no time to really catch my breath or relax, so to speak) but all in all, it was fine. So really I should be feeling confident but I'm really not!
Anyone else feeling this way? How do you deal with giving birth again when you know what to expect this time around?
