|And yesterday morning, and the day before, and the day before that...
Curious as to what in the world I could possibly be blabbering about? Now don't think I'm insane or think maybe my hormones have gone to my head, but lately I have seriously been considering all natural child birth!
If the song fits...
Well, considering is not really the right term. I have absolutely no desire to feel the pain of shoving a child through my 38-year-old hoohah! I really have no clue whatsoever from where this thought process of doing it naturally is coming. It's like I woke up one morning with my superhero cape on and proclaimed with a mighty feminine roar, "To hell with you pain killers, I got this!" That is just bat-shit crazy no matter how you look at it!
|This is what I should be shouting!
|That's cause he had an epidural!
|So, yay for science!!!
Is it some type of crazy motherhood chemical being released into my system? Is it just part of the 9-month process that we all have to deal with? I seriously wish I could figure out why I cannot get rid of this thought. Especially when I know it's not what I logically want. I even told my mother the other day that no matter what stupid shit I spout during labor she is absolutely, without a doubt, 100% supposed to put her foot down and make sure I get that epidural. I don't want to be a birthing champion and get obnoxious bragging rights for doing it naturally. I want to be calm, and sane, and in no pain. That makes sense, the choosing pain does not.
|I don't need this type of reassurance!
|I could seriously break my hoohah!
Anyway, that is my crazy hormonal trial and tribulation of the moment. I think that maybe it all stems from the fact that I've had such and easy pregnancy and my brain has developed the misinformed notion that labor and delivery will be more of the same...easy peasy. Believe me, I know it's not and I know how dumb that sounds. I guess only time will tell if I end up being a moron when it counts. Maybe I should start an office pool and take bets on how long I will hold off for the drugs or whether I will just simply lose my mind and go for the painful gusto! We'll all find out come April, no doubt about that! Hold on to your hats, this could get interesting!
