Birth videos make me cry too!

 

The other day I wanted to prove to ds2 that there could really be a baby in my belly, and that it will come out (he's only just turned 2).  So I started showing him videos.  I like to have waterbirths, and that's what I always watch.  But you know, I wanted him to see where the baby would exit, so we watched some women giving birth on beds and OH HOLY CRAP.  I don't think I have watched anything that closeup and graphic, and I was cringing so bad!  I'm there saying to him "See?  Isn't that neat?  Look, it's going to come out, you can see a little bit of its head right there..." 

but inside I was like "IT'LL NEVER GET OUT OF THAT TINY HOLE!!!  THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE! AHHHHHH!lol.gif

HAHAHAHA!

 

I didn't watch my first real birth video until right after I had my first son.  (We never did childbirthing classes, just self-study).  Anyway, I was watching by myself thinking OMG THAT HAPPENED TO ME?!?!?!  OMG OMG OMG!  *shudder*

 

It made me very thankful that I refused the mirror at the hospital.  It's just something I'm not interested in seeing....   I'm way too squeamish!
