If you could permanently get rid of one worry, what would it be?
The unknown of childbirth for first time moms. More specifically, the not knowing how much pain you’ll endure before, during and after delivery. If you’ll need an episiotomy (this is where they cut your vagina so babies head can get thru, HELL NO!). If an epidural will leave you with complications if you can’t handle the pain and decide to go that route. Thanks Eve for eating that damn apple!
No matter how many birthing videos I watch or stories I read, I am still worried, no, I am FRIGHTENED! I know once it’s over and I see my baby, the worries will be over and I’ll eventually be crazy enough to do it all over again. Maybe. Hell, if my sister can handle 2 natural births, one with pitocin induction, then I should be able to right? Although, I think her pain tolerance might be higher cause I am a big ass baby and don’t have the balls to pierce my own nipples and lip like she did. She’ll probably punch me for saying that, but it’s true.
Since there’s a new library about a mile from my house, I think I am going to there, get a card and check out a crap ton of what to expect books. Hopefully those will help put my mind at ease.
If you’ve had a child, how was it for you?
