Wow, congrats girlfriend! It's so exciting and amazing isn't it? I'm due on the 8th of Aug so our bubs are due on the same month. And don't worry, you'll be fine.
Being pregnant for the first time, you sure do hear alot of stories and experiences from other women. But I found borrowing books on pregnancy and labour really useful for me. I too was nervous and anxious about the labour, but it prepared me for it so nothing was out of the ordinary. When you r familiar with some aspects, its a bit easier. U relax more.
It taught me how to breathe properly in order to reduce pain and tearing. I didn't use any pain relief except gas which made me feel abit airy in the head. Its all in the mind though.
Hope this helps u coz it sure did help me. I really am happy for you.
