Oooh, I'm a measly 71%. I wonder how the questions are scored. Am I less pure because I've never birthed anywhere but home?

Am I impure at a measly 75% because my kids never wanted to come out and I HAD to have c-sections?

(*chuckle*) 97% pure. But that is probably because I had to answer "NO" to most of the questions! The only ones that I could say "YES" to were:

Have you ever subscribed to more than one parenting magazine at a time?
Do you own more than 25 pregnancy/childbirth books?
Do you plan to have more children?

Well, I definitely plan on having SOME children, and even one is more than what I have now!

oh, sorry your feelings got hurt!

I have to admit I was taken aback when I first saw my score of 73%, but I did think it was funny.

I think for every "yes" you get a percentage point off. So if you have all no's, you are 100% pure. If you answer "yes" to birthing at home you get a point off just as if you answered "yes" to having an elective c-section. What does pure mean anyway? I think it means lack of experience or outside info, maybe? So if you go all out and experience the full pregnancy thing with photos, blessings, RRL, you are going to be docked more points, so don't feel bad. Screwy test.

83% here, interesting

91% - extremely weird. A lot of those questions don't even apply to me, because I've never laboured all the way to the end. That's a weird test.

hmmm, I'm 76% pure. Some of them were funny, but I don't really get what pure means.

79% here, I wonder how they are calculating it?
post #17 of 61
80% pure. Hilarious test!

That's what I think. I got a 79% and have had 3 uncomplicated homebirths (one was a water birth) with no meds or epidural or episiotomy.

I'm 72% most likely due to my induced labor turned c-section. My second birth was as pure as they come.

85%
I don't get what pure means either
