It didn't bother me so much 'cause I figured they were just trying to display some empathy or were just being conversational... I mean, what's the alternative? "You're pregnant? Really? Whatever."

But I could see how it gets wearing after the 50th time.

So what you need to do is this:
1. Pain helps you bond so go for any / all options that come with the most pain.
2. Crystals. Surround yourself with many good crystals as possible and avoid the devil's crystals. Your body will know which is which.

Any time.

RE: Pregnancy "advice"
I know that natural childbirth at home with a midwife is all wonderfully....natural and shit. But if we hadn't been at the hospital with the OR ready for an emergency cesarean, I don't know that I wouldn't be a childless widower right now. Obviously between her small body and his stubbornness, neither of them "just knew" how to do it. But the doctors did.

Throwin' that out there for whatever it's worth.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Thank you!

Advice is fine! Most of the time its welcome! I didn't mean to imply that I didnt want advice.

Its when people offer advice and you dont agree with it or dont want to do it and they imply your being a bad "mom"

Thats what sucks.

The minute you say "im pregnant" its like the whole world comes out with their -opinion- on how you should do things, and if you don't agree WELL....

Example (of many)


I plan to give birth in a hospital. With doctors, and machines, and medicine.

Someone in my life thinks this is awful. "You need a midwife! The doctors will only make labor worse! YOUR BODY KNOWS HOW TO DO THIS"


.....I get that. And I feel so grateful that I have so many loving caring people in my life that want to pass on their views to help me. But I don't want to be made to feel like a bad person if I choose to do something they dont like.

Anyway. I guess this is just a whinge. But remember with the pregnant people in their life. Let them make up their own ideas of what they want.

People giving Morgan pregnancy advice, and I'm just sitting here giving no fucks, like everybody else should.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

It's more comfortable to deliver in hospitals now than it was "back in the day" (40 years ago in my day).

Many hospitals now offer a home-like atmosphere where you can have family and friends drop by and hang out with you while you are in labor.

If you have a choice of hospitals, find out what they offer.

And now, pain meds are offered that did not exist for all those that went before. Yeah buddy, go for the gold--a relatively pain free delivery.
