Fear.

I have a list (that feels like it's a mile long) of things I want to get done before the baby's born. You'd think that those things would be occupying my thoughts.

Nope.

Instead I think about labor and delivery.

And

I'm

Scared.

The end.

It's okay to be scared. You will do just fine. Hey you have done this before right? I hear a epidural is always good for the fear but, if you wanna go natural then that won't work. :) It's going to be okay, he will be here and you will do great before you know it. :)
My prayers are with you.

Hugs,
Sheila

Totally understand the fear. My last pregnancy scared me. But as always I got through it. And you wil to. The Lord's hand is upon you and He will keep you and this beautiful blessing in His care. You'll be in my prayers FRIEND. :)

I understand. When I feel like this I think of the end result, a precious babe and thank the Lord for the blessing of being able to experience this miracle when so many never will. I will be praying for you!

Laura, I'm with you, and I have 3 more months to go!! And what's more, I get the fear every. single. time!!

And I know that you will soar through labor, like you always do.

Laura, our God has designed your body so incredibly for labor. I thought I was the only one it was so easy for....but it sure doesn't seem easy in the middle of it, does it??

Well, I'm going to be praying for you. There is not any better partnership of prayer than those who struggle with the same thing.

I can't wait to see him!

Praying for you, Laura.
Have you struggled with this before, friend?
I agree with what the other girls here have said, too.

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you

Can't wait to see TJ. :P

I imagine this is normal - in fact the only thing I'm dreading with getting pregnant again (God willing) is the cesarean I know I'm going to have to have. I like what Rosalie said about thinking of the end result a precious babe!
I'll be praying for you

It's been scarier for me with each child, too! I hope it goes okay. It's just the getting it over with part, right?
