i know im worrying early but..

I am freaking out about labor already.....I am more scared with my 2nd than I was with my son..although I didnt know what to expect with him I at least had an idea...with my son I didnt have any contrax until a few days before I had him...had a few on a wed night, a ton a thursday night ( they ranged from 6-10 mins apart) and had them all day that friday about the same..and when to the hospital late friday night and got an epi at about a 7/8 and had to get pitocin because of the epi stopped my conrtax and even with the pitocin my contrax never got closer than 5 minutes..

so now i am wondering!!!! how am I going to know its time this time around...I refuse to go to get sent home lol....how am i going to know if they again never get actually closer than 5 mins....i was waiting with him to have them get closer than 5 minutes and they never did...i am scared of waiting and thinking maybe its not time yet and having a baby in the car or at home becuase i waited to long... i obviously am worrying way sooner than i should even be thinking about it.

I am sure you know this, but ya never know. That can be applied in many ways. You never know if labor will be the sameor different. It might be the same and you do go in late, you mght go intoo earlier. It will all be ok Smile

ditto. you just never know. i was induced with my son. who knows if that will happen. i was thinking yesterday that i've never just spontaneously gone into labor and i wonder if that will happen this time. i started thinking WAY too much about it but then had to stop b/c i was stressing about something i can't really control. as much as it's nice to think you can plan your labor and baby's birth, you just never know what your body and your baby may be doing that day!!

Maybe you will get lucky and things will go smooth with no problems.But you never know how things are going to go until your in that place.Just remember that things tend to go faster with your second so keep that in mind while your waiting for your contractions to get 5 minutes apart.When I went into labor with my first I had contractions all day never got closer than 10 minutes apart but after 12 hours I was done my back was killing me I went to the hospital.When I got there they stoped.The nurse told me to go walk and after about 3 minutes my contractions started and were 4 minutes apart.It about killed me to get back to the labor and delivery unit.

Oh man! Each labor is so different!
With my first I somehow knew, with my second- I had a beautifully progressing labor where the contractions increased steadily and never stalled, but with my subsequent kids I could be in "false" labor for weeks.
I did have my seventh baby in the car after I got sent home, I vowed that I won't be back until I KNOW that she is coming and that's what happened..
After that, they listen to me and admit me based on my opnion Wink So there are perks to that!

You ladies are right it could very well be different than before...I need to stop worrying for now at least
