  • I honestly avoided shows or anything like that which might turn me away from giving birth with my children. After I had each of my boys I still can't stand watching the delivery shows and all on t.v. guess just b/c I have a weak stomach, I dunno.

  • I was with my best friend when her son was born. It didn't bother me. I got pregnant shortly after that actually. Her son was born in Feb & my son was born Nov of that same year.

  • In my first trimester all I watched were movies about giving birth, lol. I scoured the internet for them. Then as I started to get bigger I started to get worried about how this was all going to go down and my husband blocked TLC and the Discovery channels, lol. I would become hysterical at the thought of dilation so I don't blame him.

    I wasn't worried so much about complications as I was about the baby exiting my vagina...
