    i went into labor on the 9th of october last

    year. I was at home, with my girlfriend, (also pregnant) watching tv. I got up to go make dinner, when I felt a jabbing sensation in my belly. It was much stronger than the braxton hicks i'd been feeling for a few days, so I leaned against the counter, breathing hard. My...

    I Won't Do It Again

    if I want another child some day I'll adopt.  I thought I was going to die when I had my son.  The epidural didn't relieve the pain, I should have done the whole thing naturally and it would have gone a lot quicker.  I was in labor for 24 hours and developed a...

    Twice

    I have two little boys, 7 and 3. They came into the world in the usual way. In case you are wondering, yes it hurts. Pain so unbearable at times I wished for death. Begged for it. People say you forget the pain of childbirth or you would never do it again. I'll tell you, I did...

    And I Will Never Again.

    I had my son in 2006.  It was actually a really easy labor.  I was taking a nap at 10:30 pm and went to the bathroom and was bleeding.  I went to the hospital and they checked me and told me I probably wouldn't have the baby that night and would be sent home. ...

    My Three Sons

    MY FIRST My first birth was 9 years ago. I was 18. I had him with a Midwife, in a "Birthing Center." It was quite a traumatic experience, because I was young and didn't know what to expect, and because the environment I gave birth in was uncomfortable. I didn't know I was in...
