Yup, every day I thought something was wrong. I didn't feel right, he wasn't moving as much, I was cramping, I'vd been in labor so long and bleeding a lot...

01/04/12, after 62hrs of labor he was born, 4 days before his EDD. 7lb 10oz, 21.5in long happy, hungry and in perfect health. Try not to sweat it. Everything will be fine :)

with my 1st i went in knowing every thing that might go wrong, u have to be prepared for it but optimistic, our bodies know what their supposed to be doing, i had my last baby in 1 hour, i seriously thought i was dying, when it was over it was just labor lol hang in there try not to focus on what might happen...

Although i knew in my gut something would happen justheld my DH hand through the 64 hours of pain. our son was born blue and had to be suctioned and given oxygen because they said he was in shock (from the shoulder dystocia right before he waz delivered). But today he is happy and healthy fifteen months. just know that something going wrong is not common. i had a host of health issues at the birth and after. most births are pretty straight forward so try not to worry :) i always told myself that stress makes a angry baby (not true but helped lol) have some excellent support and yyou will be okay

I'll give you the advice I paid a fortune to a counselor for: Worrying about bad things happening won't prevent bad things from happening. It'll only make you miserable in the present. Bad things happen and most of the time there isn't a damn thing you can do about it, so just try to enjoy each moment as it comes, most of the time everything will turn out fine.

I have this feeling alot now lately, but I'm going to be induced. I'm pretty scared, wanted labor naturally.. I'm just trying to stay positive and not think about it for now. Its not helping lol. I'm sure we'll both be fine.
