Labor & Delivery

Is anyone else in shock of knowing a baby will be coming out of you? I'm 39 weeks and I still can't wrap my finger around the concept.

  • its amazing what our bodies are capable of. It is a bit scary to think that a 6lb baby or bigger for most people is going to squeeze its way out of us. My husband and I just watched a video in birthing class and i think hes scared of what its going to do to my vagina lol!
