I don't think I really thought this through.....

There is no turning back now! It hit me like a ton of bricks this morning that I will actually have to give birth to this baby! Child birth has been my biggest fear my entire life. I can handle spiders, I have no fear of heights and scary movies don't have anything on me. But child birth??!? Apparently, I didn't think this through before I got knocked up. Since finding out I am pregnant I have started reading up on child birth and labor......let's just say it scared the crap out of me even more. There is nothing glamorous about having a baby!

I guess I will have to suck it up when I go into labor and act like a big girl. Seriously, women have been giving birth since the beginning of time under worse conditions. I guess I need to view it as a right of passage in order to become a mom.

Aw, I totally feel the same way! Whenever my time comes around, I will be thinking the same exact thoughts.
