I am terrified of labor. I hear stories about how easy it was to horror stories about bleeding and emergency C-Sections and 6 hours of straight pushing!
I have so many fears about labor. The pain factor is a big one. But I'm hoping an epidermal will clear that right up. And then there are the "icks": Am I going to tear? Or should I have the doctor cut me? Am I going to poo on the table? Will I know?
Then I heard stories about the nurses pushing on your stomach after you give birth to get the afterbirth out. It is suppose to be very painful.
So, I registered for Childbirth Preparation Classes through my hospital. And either my husband, Richard, or my bestest friend, Molly, will be my partner. I've already been told we will watch the 1970s birth video we were forced to watch in 9th grade Health Class. Great.
It's all worth it though, right?!
