10 {Kinda} Funny Truths to Natural Labor

  1. The more people you tell your birth plan to, the more you realize you just really don't want to tell people your birth plan anymore. You can only handle getting looked at like you're nuts so many times.
  2. Every time someone says, "good luck" with their sarcastic-in-your-dreams voice you just want to slap em'.
  3. Most expecting moms are reading What to Expect When You're Expecting, but you're reading inspiring birth stories written by hippies.
  4. The term "Ring of Fire" will forever mean something totally different to you. 
  5. You're basically passing a watermelon through a hole that began as the size of a grape and you still don't want pain meds? No nurse, I still don't want them. 
  6. Other people's birth photos look quite glamorous compared to the sweaty, exhausted lip-biting photos you have. 
  7. Never in your life did a hot bath feel so good.
  8. But never in your life did you really think you may see something floating around -- hey with the pressure going on down there -- you have no idea what may come out. 
  9. Seriously, never in your life did you really think you may cr@p yourself in front of your husband.
  10. Never in your life have you wanted to look back at all the disbelievers and gloat like no one's business while running through public with an "I delivered naturally" t-shirt on while wearing a tiara and expecting to be the next "Rosie the Riveter." 
So maybe these only match my experience...
Anything to add ladies?
