Emotionally drained.

I feel like I’ve been such an emotional wreck lately, I’ve been under so much stress and just super emotional. I feel like I’m not sure if I’ll be the mother that my son deserves or if I’m prepared enough I’m not sure if it’s because I’m getting induced Monday and everything has just seen to come so quickly, I wanted to go full term 40 weeks but because of my blood pressure and just my gestational diabetes considering the amount of insulin I’ve had to take to control it My doctor thinks it’s best to induce on Monday at 37 weeks and I’m terrified of failed induction leading to a C-section and many people say it isn’t Terrible but it just seems to be a lot emotionally and physically especially considering I have severe anxiety and of course there’s nothing I can do about it now because baby has to come out one way or another but I feel like I’m just questioning myself about every little thing and I’m not sure what to say to myself to calm myself down, but Sometimes it feels like I’m barely able to sleep because the only thing on my mind is this next week coming up. This will be my first child and I’ve always wanted to be a mother but somehow now that the time has come, I’m not sure if I can do it. I know it sounds silly and maybe it’s just hormones but I feel beyond drained and emotionally exhausted and any advice Would really help right now.
