I don't know why but as my "D" day arrives I'm getting more and more anxious and nervous. I know what the pain is like but I also forget. Last time I had a GREAT coach but this time I have just my Mom and she can't bare to see me in pain. I'm allowed to get the epidural whenever I want and I'm afraid that I will want it earlier then I should get it. Last time they made me wait until I was almost 7 cm. I was in hell. I did get some drug in my IV and that kind of made me rest then they gave me the epidural. I'm hoping to get to 5 cm before I ask for it. And I just feel like this baby is never going to come and the doctor said I was measuring out a week early and that the baby could be almost a 8lb baby. I'm afraid I won't be able to push her out. I'm afraid of going into labor with no one here but my six year old son. That will FREAK him out. Did anyone else feel like this?
