Until last night, I didn't realize how scared I am to do this totally natural either. I always thought I was tough... that I could handle a lot of pain. Until I had kids. This go around, due to having to pay for the entire pregnancy, birth and hospital... I've decided to forgo the epidural and have told my midwife, "No matter how much I beg... do NOT give it to me!" She agreed and I may regret that. My last labor only lasted 8 hours and I got my epidural the last three... I can last three more hours right?
Tayler has been yelling at my belly least twice a day saying "COME OUT BABY! I WANT TO MEET YOU!" Maybe the baby is scared? She is also going to be very disappointed if we bring home another boy. If I tell her "It could be a boy!" She promptly replies... "Okay, bring home a girl too." Literally... "Oh boy."
