  • First things first ... congratulations to you and Chastity. And if you thought that was hard work, wait until you get the baby home! :-)

    Now ... nurses. They have a lot of power over the way your birth goes, and if they push you into something you're not comfortable with then you can really end up with a lot of regrets about the whole deal. It doesn't sound like yours was that bad, so well done! The rest of this is aimed at your next time, or anyone who's reading and might have kids.

    The natural birth

    • We have a midwife ... she basically acts as your coach and doctor except for those times where the doctor is required. I know of "doulas" but the name sounds fruity to me. I fear that which I don't know.

      And yeah, the natural childbirth class is generally useful if you're ignorant (like most of us are) even if you do want to go with drugs. You can still use the relaxation techniques, and you can learn what's going to happen, and if you're lucky, you get a teacher who re-arranges the time of class so you can get home in time to see the Patriots beat the Steelers in the AFC championship game (oops, is that a sore spot? :-).

      My girl isn't gurgling to yourses, but she's wriggling ... and she can't wait to get out and watch the tape of the Patriots Super Bowl that she experienced in utero. :-)
      • This would be so much more fair if, say, I had something usefull to say in return. Unfortunatley, there is no way to dispute the fact that your team beat my team.

        I don't have some wise comment to make. Perhaps if we would have injured Brady correctly and he didn't play the Super Bowl... but we didn't.

        This is the best I can come up with to vent my frustration. I suppose I could be ignorant and just say your team stinks and mine r0x0rZ but, that isn't all true.
