You won't!
You have such a high level of adrenaline, it's hard to think about anything and there is no feeling in the world that compares to hearing your child cry for the first time. You'll do good :)



I have been terrified of labor my whole life and was seriously considering never having a baby, but it was awesome!

You will be so excited and thinking about getting the baby in your arms you won't pass out. Don't think about passing out or you might. I worried ALL the time when I was pregnant with my first and well he came 2 months early so that was a huge shocker and Labor and delivery were actually not bad. Even with my second. So really wait and see and being alone at night was one of my fears to. Keep a phone number by you of anyone that you can call to take you and all that good stuff. My boyfriend is a manager at a retail store so he worked alot and really crazy hours. So I was always worried I wouldnt have a ride to the hospital and have to drag my 18 month old to the car with my water broke and going everywhere I don't know i had dreams about it. But it all worked out! So good luck and think about other things!

I hyperventilated from the pain, and almost passed out.. my chest felt like it was vibrating (sounds confusing i know, even the doctor thought it sounded fucked up) I was 9cm dilated and it was to0o late to have pain medication, contractions hardly hurt, then he broke my water.. could def. feel them then.. get the epi or something lol.. if it's the pain you are worried about.. on top of all that i was emotionally drained from mye x not being there when his daughter was born..

I thought that I might get overwhemed and pass out but fortunately, when it came time to push I was ready to go. I was so sick of being confined to a bed and not being able to sleep that I jsut wanted to get the hell out of there. PLUS, I wanted to see my baby sooo bad! I was so proud of myself when it was all over with. You feel like superwoman, and like others have said you have so much adreniline that I really find it hard to believe taht you will pass out.
