38 weeks plus 3.  Have been feeling good all pregnancy and generally looking forward to bubs arrival.
But this afternoon I had a little panicky moment - like not sure WHY I'm doing this.  I don't even really like children and babies!  If someone came to me and said they don't particularly like dogs but where thinking of getting on anyway I would say they're insane!

Does anyone else get like this?  It's just nervousness right.

It's OK

We delayed our CS for our last baby by a few hours, because we just weren't ready.

Blamed the minor fwy accident and had the hospital call us thinking we were the ones in it because it had been 3 hours since we called, after informing them an hour after we were meant to be there.

Just nerves lol. Our little one is a breath of fresh air.

You can do it!!!

Yeah pretty normal wink.gif I don't like other peoples kids or babies a lot of the time, but you usually kinda like your own biggrin.gif

You'll be alright, and if you're not let someone know as guaranteed someone else has felt even more unprepared
