From a pregnant former co-worker, "I can't breastfeed this baby, because i dried up last time, and there may be dry milk in there still." (ahhh so that is where powedered milk comes from DOH!)
I had 2 births where my kids were born vaginally and both were just barely over 7 pounds, and did so with out tearing or episotomies. I was talking to a friend of mine that had 2 kids too, both of hers were just under 6 pounds and she had tearing that required stitches. I told her that I didn't know what it was like to have stitches. "WOW, you must have a huge vagina" came her response. Yeah that took the wind out of my sails!
"...and here we have the Grand Vagina Canyon. Hear the echo echo echo echo echo..."
After a friend had her 4th C-section, she told me that the doctor jokingly told her if she had another that he'd give her a tummy tuck for free with the next C-section, and she thought it was funny.....I didn't laugh, so she told it to me again in case i didn't hear it the first time..I didn't know what to say so i let out a meak haw haw.
Former supervisor asks me when I brought my newborn into work, "So how long do you have to breastfeed before you can give her a bottle with formula?" ...Ah, I pick, never on that one.
My aunt who is a pediatric dental chair side assistant, and dental educator, who loves to rant about kids with "bottle-mouth" "Eww gross, I don't see how you can breastfeed!"......mKay....
My best-friend (who went through 2 unmedicated vaginal births and 1 unmedicated episiotomy because all drugs make her puke) upon learning that I really want a homebirth if i am blessed with #3 "Are you going to be all hippie-like and hug trees and then be all zen-like and sit crossed legged and hum? Can I be there to see it come out of your whoha? Do we have to chant, though?" ....well I guess if homebirthing means that i am a hippie, then it is a good thing that I like the Grateful Dead and wear tie-dye and hemp. Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
