am I the ONLY one?

Hi all. Im 37weeks 5days.  Im very comfortable and in no hurry to have my little man. Is this a bad thing???  Im more scared of the hospital and what can happen (dont like needles or blood) than I am excited about having my little one.  Everyones says that I'll get uncomfortable and just wish he comes, but im getting more nervous as the days count down. ... am I alone?

I wish I felt like you but in in constant pain and starting to feel depressed from anxiety and the fact I feel so useless. I can't wait for him to get here. There was a time I felt happy pregnant but now I'm just ready for him to be here and this pain to go. I will be 37 weeks tomorrow btw

I'm not that far along yet but I'm sure I won't be in no rush to have my baby either. I don't know what's up with all this posts about how to speed up labor. I'm not looking forward to another c section, plus I want the baby to have a full developed respiratory system, and digestive system, I sure don't want a baby crying all night with colic!

I'm 35w+3d and I have always been afraid of birth. A lot of people ask me are you ready and I am not. I want to see her and hold her but I keep thinking about the worst that can happen during labor and freak myself out. I know eventually it will happen, I am just not mentally prepared yet. I have tried packing bags, cleaning and getting ready for the big day but the fear is still there of the what ifs.

I am scared everytime I get pregnant about delivery.  That fear is beat by the love and excitement of the new baby. Labor is a easy thing to go through when you look at what you are getting. I barley remember the pain when they put my baby in my arms. Without pain meds labor is simple you have bad pain for contractions... when it comes to pushing you give up halfway through ( I allways say I can't do it half way through even though I know I can) then you push any ways because you know you can but you feel that way because you are so tired. Once you hit the ring of fire you get an adrenaline rush.  And.when the head finally comes out you get this feeling of relief that is when the adrenaline and hormones are at there highest... then they hand you baby... trust me there is nothing like labor....
