Wow firstly how exciting that you will be having your bubs very soon. Birth itself isn't that scarry, I think it's the thought of the unknown that scares most of us....like with our first we are scared because we don't know what the pain will be like, and with our second we don't know if it will be like the 1st or quicker/slower, or when we will go into labour. So everyone has fears, but I think you will find that once you go into labour, you will be so excited and focused that your fear will subside.
I found that with my 1st 2 labours Breathing helped...I know that sounds so cliche but really, everytime I had a contraction (the strong painful ones) I just got in the zone and closed my eyes and breathed thru it, even the midwife kept saying she couldn't believe how good I was doing, because she could see on the monitor how bad they were and I was just silent except for my breathing. It's also good to try and remember throughout that all of the contractions are what actually helps your bubs out and without them they couldn't get out without a DR's Help.
Try to get as much rest as you can between now and labour......A nice night in with hubby/partner and some takeaway and a DVD should relax you enough, and you never know it may just start labour if your relaxed enough.
Take it easy and don't stress this is the most amazing thing you will do in your life and an experience like no other.....a magical wonderful time that only a mother can do.
Good Luck. Mel x
