Scared of giving birth!

I’m 25w5d pregnant! This is my 3rd pregnancy. I had a miscarriage in March & got pregnant again in April! I already have an amazing 9 year old daughter! It’s been a long time since having a baby & I’m afraid of everything going wrong I don’t know how to keep it out of my mind it’s just there I’m afraid of giving birth the pain and something going wrong! I just want advice from other women!

I had the same worries... And after having friends go through emergency C sections after hours and hours of labour, almost dying and the awful recovery that takes months I couldn't justify having a vaginal birth. I asked for a c-section. A week before my due date I went in on a Monday. It took 15 minutes max for them to take him out and I had him to hold in my arms without having had a traumatic experience. Because it was a planned c-section there was no damage like in emergency ones and I was out of the hospital in 48hrs and able to do everything including running up the house stairs within that week. Best choice I've made. Good luck!

Trust that your body knows how to give birth, and don't be afraid to ask for the epidural

I just gave birth to my baby boy in May and also have a 9 year old daughter! I was nervous too but everything went perfectly fine, super quick, but that’s it! I chose a homebirth and medication free this time and gave birth to him in my bath! My water broke and 3 hours later I was holding my 10 pound baby boy. I was 22 when I had my daughter and 31 when I had my son. Your body knows what to do and your instincts will kick in! I didn’t think I could do it, medication free, but I did! You got this!

I feel exactly the same way this is my rainbow baby I havnt been able to get pregnant since I had my son in 2008 ! Finally I’m pregnant with a little princess and everything is going wrong 1. I have a heart problem & am on bedrest & have to deliver with an emergency c section in Tampa General because that’s the closest level 4 hospital to me. 2. My father who we were living with had his job for 18 years and got fired right after I got pregnant so he just basically left me and my fiancé sleeping in his truck that we gotten into an accident in and was totaled be the airbags deployed but it was a tiny one cab any ways, so my fiancé finally came up with enough money to rent an efficiency/room for a week so he knew I was okay and had somewhere to lay down & rest on bedrest, so he gets a job making near to nothing and they are giving him hardly any hours so we’re struggling to even pay rent here. We can’t live with his parents because they live with his uncle & wife & his wife is a terrible

Person and is making them get out by the first on the year because she wants her “space” which btw she has a 4 bedroom huge house that his mother and father stay I. There room way on the other side of the house, and they pay them 1200 dollars just for a little bedroom and a bathroom. So let’s just say this has been the most difficult year yet! The only good thing to come from it is my princess I’m pregnant with but it’s getting closer and closer and idk if we’re going to have a place for her 😣🤞🏻🙏🏻 we NEED a miracle!! Sorry for the long text I’m just overwhelmed and emotional and scared. I already had to give my son up in 2008 because I was 15 & in fostercare and they we’re going separate us & then he would have been in fostercare so to give him the life I never had I gave him up for adoption to a wealthy family that could give him a perfect life & I made it closed because It was so hard for me I had already had him for 6 weeks, I can’t give my baby girl up too I’m almost 30 I can’t 😣
