Fear of Labor

I am 32 weeks, and the end of my first pregnancy is nearing. I am starting to every so often get to thinking about labor and how terrified I am, I get to crying and stressing. I try to get in the frame of mind that it will be okay, but im having a hard time preparing myself mentally for labor and having a new baby in my life, which is also quite terrifying. Any suggestions?

    ((hugs))!! Do you have any family or friends that have positive birth stories they can share with you? Also, a birthing class may be helpful as well so you are able to visit with other like minded mamas and know what you can expect. I spent a great deal of time reading pregnancy books with my first pregnancy as well and that seemed to ease my mind some. Stay positive, you can do this!! Best wishes!
