I felt exactly the same, i was scared to death. But looking back it is all a big blur! Its not the nicest thing, but you soon forget it, Mine went absoltley fine until 9cm then babys heart rate droped so they had to get her out quick. But up until that point it wasnt as bad as everyone thinks! just have any drugs they offer you, i went in the birthing pool to start with which was soooo relaxing. But it got a bit intense so i got out as i needed pain relief.
I am scared of needles so i didnt want an epidural, but when the time comes you dont think about it.
You will be fine
Let me know when youve had your baby.
