"Some of us were totally pleasant and lovely during our deliveries."Haha. Liar.;-)
Hehe.. no, I swear, I was awesome! I got the epidural super early due to high BP, and I just lay there for 12 hours watching Friends on video. Pushed for a fairly pain-free 30 minutes and BAM: baby. My husband still talks about how impressed he was with me during the delivery. Of course, soon after I was reduced to tears by 3AM feedings....
I remember the Bill Cosby routine:"It is at this point during labor that the wife grabs her husband's lower lip, pulls it up over the top of his head, and screams 'MORPHINE!!!' ".
I was pleasant too! They both happened so fast I didn't have time to get angry.Being on that medicine that stops labor (I'm blanking) so my 6 week early son could get his lung meds? That was hell. I was speeding out and couldn't even keep my eyes on the page to read a book. I might have been passive aggressive at that point.
I was pleasant. I had a grandmother that gave birth 15 times. Every time I felt myself losing control I would remind myself of that and say, "If she can do it that many times w/out medical intervention I can do it this time." I had three.The last one was a doozy and hubby said, "No more. If he had been the first there would have only been one."
But Mary, everybody *knows* that it's the first few that're the worst. After #7 or so, all you have to do is sneeze and the baby goes shooting across the room!
We had a multip on L&D who went to the toilet and the baby plopped out there.
oh my gosh, this cartoonist was spying on me 4 months ago. And it was my fourth delivery,lol
We had the sweetest lady, she was occasionally politely saying that she's uncomfortable and crampy. And in the next twenty minutes, she went from saying "Ow, that hurts. Ow. Am I dilated yet? Ow, my back is really sore" to screaming "THIS IS THE WORST F* PAIN OF MY ENTIRE F* LIFE I AM SO F*N DONE GET IT OUT NOW!" and when the baby was out, "I'm so sorry, that was so bad of me." And all the nurses and the OB were like Seriously lady? We've heard worse. No need to apologize.How the hell do women do this without epidurals?My partner was 10lb5oz. I am NOT looking forward to childbirth.
