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