Childbirth kinda scares me

At my childbirth class last night, we watched a few live births on video from 1979 and it showed everything. I knew it would be intense and different than anything, but I'd never had a visual in my mind until last night. Hollywood's never right, so I wasn't taking Knocked Up at face value. It was fascinating and a little scary. I had dreams about it last night. I was having contractions and I was pushing, just trying to get this baby out. And I woke up and really had to pee. So it's a good thing I didn't keep pushing, I probably would have peed the bed. That would have been embarassing

Aynna you are so funny/weird! I'm glad you didn't pee the bed, now that would be awkward. I'm sure you'll do just fine. It's just the anticipation that's getting to ya. Just think, in a little over a month and a half you'll have a bouncing baby boy. =)

Maybe with your next baby I will introduce you to hypnobirthing. I have birthed all of our babies this way. You can check them out at

Hey you! Seriously, delivery is nothing compared to the awkwardness, uncomfortableness, sickness of the past nine months. You'll be great! Random question? Did you ever take a pic of me and my sisters daughter Maci? Back in Oct/November? I thought you did... I only have a few pics with her and I thought you might have one. If you do, can you email it to my hotmail?
Thanks, love ya
