Say Yes to Drugs!

For the past two weeks Spiderman and I have been going to our birthing classes. Up until this point, I've been very good at NOT thinking that this kid has to come out. I mean, it's not like I can DO anything about it right? So why worry right?

Well in birthing classes they focus on....that's right.....birthing. I was looking through the book that they gave us and let me just say? Nothing about the process appeals to me. Also? 10 cm is a LOT bigger than you might think. Especially when you consider what has to get that big. The first class I spent a large portion having panic attacks. This week's class was better as we went over pain management options. I'm pretty open to whatever they can do to take the edge off. Just get the baby out quickly, safely, and relatively pain free. It's not like I'm a pioneer woman giving birth on the prairie.

I'm no stranger to pain. I've suffered from migraines my entire life. If I can manage to avoid any unnecessary pain I will do it. I'm not one of those women who wants to experience "natural" anything so that I feel like more of a woman. I want drugs thankyouverymuch!

That's pretty much all I have to say for now since Somebody is kicking the crap out of me and I'm going to go lie down.

Oh, and if you get a chance go to my mom's blog and look at the new header I designed. It's simple, but cute I think.

another hearty yes to drugs!

here is what I was thinking about it before MP

I had an 18 hour failed induction with no pain meds (awful) and a c-section on super drugs (awesome)
natural, smatchural

I say amen to your way of thinking. I was amazed at my daughter having Ivy naturally with no drugs, home birth.

Never had kids (you know this) but I say just go with what feels right for you. Some people can do it without drugs, some people feel so much more at ease with them. Neither way makes you any more or less of a woman.

So to be cliche, pick the option you think will make you happiest! YAY NINJA BABY!
