As much as I want this baby to come already, I am so scared about the actual labor. Sure, this is my 4th child, but I had two medicated births & a c/s & this time I am trying to have an unmedicated VBAC so I am a little worried. Could this fear be keeping my body from going into labor? I doubt it because otherwise every first time mother would never go into labor, am I right?? So as much as I want this baby, I keep thinking, if he wants to stay in a little longer that is fine because I don't want to have to experience the labor & healing afterwards. Does anyone else feel this way? Also, I keep thinking, I hope labor doesn't strat when I am shopping or out running errands. My mother keeps telling me to put plastic over my mattress so if m y water breaks in the night, I won't ruin it. I say, better my water breaks in bed then while shopping at TargetI think I might have too much time on my hands. Must stop thinking so much. Ok, time to go clean the bathroom, maybe that will get something going.
