Biggest labor and delivery fears?
Fri, 08-02-2013 - 3:38pm

I'm terrified that the epidural won't work. LOL!  I've heard SO many horror stories from friends.  I don't have a high pain tolerance at all so it is one of my biggest fears going into L&D.  

What about you? What are you worried about?

Other than the pain, I'm terrified I'll... ummm... have a bowel movement while delivering.  I know it is normal, and is certainly nothing that they've never seen before... but eeeekkkkkk!

The pain.  I don't have the highest pain threshold so I'm scared I won't handle labor well.  Hopefully I'll find a few birthing classes to take that will help me prepare for the birth.
