I had a dream that I was apparently past due, and was in a medical clinic of some kind trying to go into labor...I was jumping up and down, etc trying to knock the baby out...<br><br>
Someone showed me a newspaper about a woman dying in a homebirth in a middle eastern country, and said that was why doctors discouraged homebirths, and I went on a rant about how ppl in that country (don't remember the country, it may have been fictitious!) didn't have good sanitation, access to clean water, etc, and that conditions in the US were better than that, and that American women deserved the choice of how they give birth...then Jesus??? showed up (I was raised Catholic but am not practicing so this part was very strange) and said that childbirth is like opening a door - you could either just let the door swing open on its own, or you could attempt to beat it off the hinges.<br><br>
And then I woke up.<br><br>
I just thought it was an interesting comparison, mainly.

I love what Jesus said. Totally made me laugh which I totally needed. I totally get your anxiety over the birthing process at a hospital that your having. I'm right there with you.
