Thank you everyone. It is nice to know that I'm not alone. Intellectually I know that everything will be OK, I'm just having random moments of panic.

LOL, I know that what you meant. I do have moments where I think that I have to push TWO babies out?? What worries me the most is "am I going to be a good mother?" The best thing that I can think of is that I get to learn as they grow. It is just worrying about the unknown. I just have to tell myself that it is alright to not know.
I'm really nervous...it's wierd I am even afraid to hold babies (and usually I love holding babies) but I think it is the idea that I will be responsible for my own..and then just any number of other concerns... and the house is nowhere near ready...I still have school asignments to turn in..... I want to meet him for sure, but he can stay in a little while... (although on the other hand my skin is so raw from scratching that sometimes I am praying for him to come ealy )
I'm getting nervous, too, because I know what it feels like and don't when it will happen. Like you said, it's the unknown. Since my ds is 3, I wonder if I'll remember how to take care of a newborn, but I did when I certainly had no idea, so everything will be fine, I'm sure.
I was even going to search for a "how to swaddle" website.
