Is anyone else experiencing make anxiety and fear about the upcoming birth? Maybe it's because I'm a FTM, or that all my friends love telling their horror stories, but I'm really starting to freak out. I've taken a birth class and almost passed out. I've watched videos and had to turn my head once the baby crowns. I've read books and ended up crossing my legs and feeling so queasy I had to stop reading. I feel like the most sissified woman ever and I don't know how to make myself feel more calm and relaxed. I'm so afraid my labor will be even worse because I can't seem to control my fear and anxiety!
