I am feeling scared, too, also despite this being my 4th time. You are not alone! I can't even pinpoint what exactly is concerning me. Maybe that my last birth was so close to completely perfect that I am worried this time can only be worse in some way.

Maybe make up some affirmation/mantras for yourself? Mine include that my body knows what it is doing, that I just have to melt into the rushes once they start. I also find reading positive birth stories (I like UC stories best!) help me. And envisioning what the perfect birth would be like.

Hang in there!
