Link is in my siggie too! Feel free!
Well, I for sure said never again will I let them cut me! But, after my vag. birth I said that I would do it the same way again if we have more kids. I also said that I realize now why many people opt for the drugs and that I have a better understanding of them. I went totally drug free for a 36 hour labor....but probably only because I have a lot of knowledge and a deep passion for drug free birth. Mandy

DD was still nursing lots and I didn't get my first period until she was 18 months old....got pg when she was 22 months old...then dd weaned on her own when she was 27 months old. We'll do it the same way this time too. Mandy
Here's my take: Most of the time, kids throw fits in stores because they are bored and want to leave. Being proactive and entertaining them is the best bet.
