My stupid laptop crapped out on me so we had to set up the desktop computer. Which probably means I wont be on as much because I have to sit in the bedroom and Emme hates being in here unless Im holding her. So anyways...

I was reading this new book I got on birth stories and listen to what it said in two of them. Maybe I should take this book back...

"The other pearl of wisdom our Lamaze instructor had given us was "If you need some painkillers to take the edge off the pain, take them. Its still considered natural childbirth. Dont be a martyr.""
.... I didnt think that was still considered a natural childbirth. What kind of lamaze instructor is that???

And the other one is this woman talking about her "very down to earth certified nurse midwife" who "screened her for all the likely risks" Including measuring her pelvis and telling her that "if the baby went over 10pounds before birth" she would have to have a c section. Once again ...

I ran into Brittany at Target a couple of days ago and we exchanged numbers again. Ill be so glad to get my books back so I dont have to read this crap. LOL. She even said she had some others to lend me. Her son Sylas is getting so big!! Hes so adorable!!!
