What are we afraid of?

I have been procrastinating for weeks about how to start this blog. What I really need to know is.. What are you most afraid of? I mean in the context of your current pregnancy and upcoming birth. What is that little niggly that you keep pushing to the back of your mind? You know- your worst case senario. Not the 150 other stories you have had thrown at you since you first shared the news of your pregnancy with others, I mean in your own mind and heart. If you could get rid of one fear or factor surrounding your birth what would it be?

Every time I was pregnant I wrestled with the same fear. Could I really do this? It affected every desicion I made. As I watched my belly grow each day I worried. Worried instead of wondered at the beauty of it all. Is this resonating with anyone?
