Guess she'd never heard THAT one before.
: This is about the funniest thing I have heard in a LONG time. Just wait till DS grows up, and you can tell him you've been swearing at him since before he was even born!!
I didn't say anything mean during my labor. In fact, I was the complete oposite. I was extremely
sensitive to other people's feelings. In fact, during transition, I remeber screaming/moanin/singing really loudly during a contraction. Right after it let up, I looked around the room and said, "are you guys okay?" Everyone laughed at me and said, "we're fine, just consentrate on you." I guess I was just worried that my loved ones were having a hard time watching me in pain, and I was also a bit embarrassed I think. I'm sure next time I will let that feeling go, because in hindsight, I can see how much it was holding me back.
