Note to self do not go onto You Tube or the Baby Center websites and type Labor and Delivery into the search...you will watch found birthing videos and then be freaked for the rest of the night by what is awaiting you in the next few weeks. You will be horrified yet fascinated. It is like a train wreck or really bad reality TV...you want to turn it off but you can't--you must know what is going to happen and then you see EXACTLY what is going to happen. OMG you think to yourself--I am going to have to do that??? Really this child inside me is going to come out of me like THAT???
(Now don't get me wrong I am an educated girl--had sex ed in school, graduated college etc...but the reality of labor--OMG whole different story and perspective!!!)
You will want a C-section, you will want to be unconscious through labor, you will want to run screaming from the possibility that in a few short weeks it will be you laying on the bed in the hospital in a most immodest manner huffing and puffing...You may faint from the watching it...
You will drive your devoted husband batty with all the "What if.." questions and he will in no way sugar coat it when he says "You can't go back now..." and begins to laugh at your hysteria over the monstrosity that seems to be childbirth. He will walk back into the kitchen chuckling at his silly wife and you will bury your head in the sofa pillow trying not to scream hysterically! Ahhh men they have it so easy...just standing there up by your head or holding your hand telling you to "breathe"...grrrrrrrr
For all my first time pregnant lovelies I say DO NOT watch the labor videos!!! I repeat DO NOT watch the labor videos!!! (Wish someone had told me that...hmmmph!) That is my random thought for the day!
