Getting SO scared for labor :(
Mon, 12-19-2011 - 11:48pm

Getting induced on Wed. I was induced with DD (which went REALLY well and basically pain free). I just get so so nervous for impending pain.

I am just scared I am going to get induced and progress too fast for an epi. Or getting an epi and it not working. I will probably have a panic attack with pain as intense as being 10cm.

I know bilions of women go through it without any meds and I totally envy them and think they are wonder women. I just don't think I can do it and it scares me.

I am already 3cm and 80% effaced (find out tomorrow if I am more progressed) So here is to a smooth labor!

I am trying to focus my body and really channel dealing with pain in. We will see!

If you had a good labour with your DD I'm sure that this will be the same.
