Labor Amnesia

I often hear people say that after the baby is born a mother forgets what labor was like.

To which I say

BULL SHIT.

Yes, yes, you are overcome with love for your new little bundle of joy and that may take your mind off your battered, possibly stitched, and definitely swollen nether regions.  

Obviously I consider this all very worth it because I did try for 2 years to have another baby but

Labor Sucks.


And I don't like pain.  I'm not going to lie.
I'm not going to try and go without drugs.
And I haven't forgotten what it was like.

Seriously, I would need to suffer a special type of amnesia to forget labor.  And I had an epidural.  So perhaps I'm just remembering the first part of active labor and the aftermath.

Oh the aftermath

So with 19 days until due date, I'm here to say, 
I know what's coming and I'm not exactly looking forward to it.

    1. I saw you had posted and I had to scroll down f-a-s-t I thought baby was here. Dang what a tease!
      You will be fine. Hopefully it will be easier this time. My second one (really third) one was!
      Blessings.

  2. So, my first labor suuuuucked. My second was a breeze! I seriously said, "I could do that again!" minutes after she was born. I was induced both times, late both times, had giant over nine pound babies both times, and the second time was totally a game changer for me. So take that story with you. Here's to an easy labor!

  3. Haha, so true. I'm glad you're not afraid to say it! Hopefully you have one of those awesomely fast easy labors people say happen the second time around. I will say this, my second labor might not have been easy with Piglet, but it definitely was fast! Here's hoping for an easy labor for you, and if not easy, at least fast!

  4. And that is why the good Lord gave someone the knowledge to come up with epidurals.
