  • I don't know why they don't do it like in the olden grandmother (who is 90) says she was completely knocked out, and when she woke up, she had a baby, lol...........I wish I did it that way!!!

    I have 3 daughters, and each birth was as painful as the first, but of course it's worth it!!! By the 3rd I got smart, and told them I was in pain (when I actually wasn't), at 4 cm dilated, just so I could be drugged up, lol......wish I knew that when I was having my first, that all I had to do was lie!!
