What are you most excited/nervous about??

I was just thinking last night about how I am starting to get excited for baby to come. With DD, being my first, I was very nervous about what the birth would be like. This time, I am REALLY looking forward to giving birth. (Am I crazy???) It was just such an amazing experience last time, and I can't wait to do it again! When DD was born, she looked NOTHING like I imagined... both DH and I have really thick dark curly hair, so I thought she would be born with a full head or hair, but she ended up being a baldy. I'm so exctied to see if this little one is going to look like DD. The only thing I'm really nervous about is, am I going to have enough time for DD once the baby comes?!
Just curious what everyone else is looking forward to most, or most nervous of?

I too am really excited to give birth again. I do have some anxiety about how everything will happen if we make it to an amnio and induction, but I loved our birth with DD (despite the pp hemorrhage). It was beautiful and empowering and I am SO thrilled to meet this little guy. I have his 3D ultrasound picture on the fridge from our 33 week BPP. I love that picture because he looks so much like a newborn and with all the new babies that have been born lately, I'm really excited to go through it again.

I'm also beyond thrilled to have a sweet, cuddly newborn again. DD is fantastic but she's Miss Independent unless she's tired or hurt. I'm also really looking forward to BFing. DD breastfed for 18 months and I loved the bonding time it gave us.

I am so excited to meet baby girl I cannot wait to see what she looks like and just cuddle and have my baby boy meet her. I am so nervous about trying to Vbac I hope I can do it and don't end up with another c section.

Patricia how is your provider about you VBACing? Are they super supportive? If I can ask, what lead to your c/s with DS? There are some amazing vbac mamas around here. Biggrin

Im excited because I might get MY birth! (: I am a labor/birth junkie lol and I feel like this is it, this is my moment! So cheesy I know but I really really want that "magic birth" Im beyond excited for the "Its a ____!" moment! I have in my birth plan that NO one is to tell me, I want to SEE it for myself. I cant wait for the newborn squishyness!

Im nervous about complications coming up, about being a mom of 3. O.o THREE. Eek!

They are really supportive but still had to go through all the scary stuff with me as well as I had to sign a form knowing the danger. With Dylan I was fully dilated and pushing he just wasn't in the right position so every time I would push he would come out, then I would stop and he would go back in. After over 24 hours and me getting an infection they said it would be best to have a c section. So I think my body can do it just hope I don't have to go through another c section.

I'm so excited to see what this little booger look like. I wonder if she'll have hair, no hair; will it be black or red like her siblings. How big will she be? So many things to look forward to.

I'm a little nervous for the recovery. I know what to expect, but I'm also getting my tubes tied, and I'm wondering if that will affect my recovery in any way. I also am dreading that 3rd day at the hospital. Every time I've delivered, the 3rd day is the worst. Engorgement has kicked in and I get the worst gas pains in my shoulder that don't allow me to do anything. I know the pain doesn't last forever, but it's still something I'm not looking forward to!

I am nervous about the birth going like I've planned. I want it to go exactly like my last 4 have gone:show up at 7am, get epi, start pitocin, take a nap, wake up to push and by 1-2pm have a baby. Then go home in 24 hours. I'm nervous my gd will make her too big and I'll have to have a c-section instead of a vbac(this will be my 5th vbac).
I am most excited about finally getting to hold her in my arms and seeing what she will look like. I am looking forward to cherishing every moment with this baby knowing for sure it will be my last one. I don't plan on ever putting her down. I am also excited to see how my other kids are with her because they are all so excited about her.

I am nervous about labor related things... I am nervous that I will go all the way to 38 weeks or that I would even have to go longer.. I am nervous that I am going to be in too much pain to work the last few weeks...

I am excited to get this whole newborn thing going. They change so much every day and I can't wait for my son to meet his brothers.

I am excited to meet this baby--to finally hold her in my arms and to have my family be complete. I cannot wait for my kids to come and meet her--that is one of my favorite things about the birth is when my kids come--it makes me emotional every time.

I am nervous that something will go wrong at the birth (I always have that worry), and I worry about having 1 more to care for, but I just have to stay positive and go with the flow...like letting the unimportant things go...

I'm strangely not nervous about anything....maybe I'm in denial that I am having a BABY? I don't know.....

Excited about having a cute little newborn again I can't wait to meet her! And I can't wait to see dd's reaction. She is so cute with her baby cousins I hope she does good with her sister!
