Does this make anyone else cringe?

         I have had one child already with a different man than the one I am with. He was just not into this whole pregnancy thing. He never wanted to know how I was feeling really or asked any questions. He did give me body rubs all the time though and that was awesome. Anyways I had our baby through C-section and he walked in during. I could not help but ask him what the procedure looked like and his exact reply was "It looks like they are gutting a whale." That just about killed me considering how I am that whale.

         Well now I am actually in a GREAT relationship with the perfect man for me -well as close as I can find to perfect for me. And he is really into this whole pregnancy thing. He asks me questions and listens to me read the book and updates on my phone. He learned I am having a C-section though, and he is now going to have us watch a video on a C-section. Which means I get to see a baby being born though what is sure to look like mutilation. I am freaked out because open wounds and blood just are not my thing, I might have to close my eyes.

this might be a good thing for you to watch so you can be more prepared also the second c-section is not as bad as the first!!

Don't watch it if you don't want to.

 Do what you're comfortable with, he sounds like a great guy and that he would understand.

I watched my own c-sections through a mirror. Well 3 of them anyway and I have to say it was pretty interesting.

It literally sends shivers down my spine, I want to see something just to know what I am going to go through beyond that blue sheet. I wish I was not like this honestly.

Think I might faint too, I like not being able to see them cut me open. My tummy is so weak.
