I’m pretty sure I went through every emotion in the book and in a 3 hour time span went from saying “This is so easy…I don’t feel anything but I’m having a baby!” to “GET ME A FREAKIN EPIDURAL NOW OR SOMEONE DIES!!!!”
Here are some of the things I think go through the minds of most women in labor:
#1. This is simple logic people…
#2. Okay, this isn’t so bad…I can do this!
#3. How do women do this WITHOUT drugs?!
#4. I wish my husband would just LEAVE!
#5. I need my back rubbed so I can pretend I’m in a spa.
#6. DON’T TOUCH ME!!
#7. I am so sick of using the bed rail as a focus point during contractions.
#8. I wish I was at home in bed. I wish I was shopping. I wish I was on vacation. I wish I was…anywhere but here!
#9.What do you mean I’m having a c-section?! I just spent 24 hours in a labor and you decide to do this NOW?!
#10. “I’m pushing as hard as I can!!!!”
