I am 35w and 5 days and I am getting more and more worried about labor and giving birth. I spent a lot of my pregnancy worrying about dying in childbirth and leaving my little girl. (I am sort of an anxious person by nature - I worry about EVERYTHING). That has faded a little but I am just worried about how much work it is. I feel so tired and low energy - how in the world will I get through the hard work of birthing? I'm really struggling. I remember trying to push Samantha out and it went really quicky (like 35 minutes) but it was so hard and I just don't know if I am up to it again. I am so tired. A part of me is afraid I will just say, "OK - knock me out and take this child out of me." I'm sure I wouldn't, but that's how tired I feel. Anyone else have labor worries or who can sympathize with me?
