    I got freaked out by the fake birth on Knocked Up.

    @flamingred:  This makes me sick that vaginals with “failed epis” even exist.

    @WillyNilly:  Do you mean the difference between the TV show births (like A Baby Story) and the ones in my class? Yes, the births were very different. Everything was calmer, even the women who ended up needed an unplanned c-section because the babies head was too big. The women weren’t shouting or screaming. Yes, there were moans/groans, everything is slippery and gross, & they all looked like a hot mess (sweaty and uncomfortable), but they birthed those babies just fine. One mother even joked when she saw her babies head sticking out “oh, it doesn’t look like a baby”. 

    The movies/reality tv births used to scare me, so I’m glad I saw some births that weren’t traumatizing. I’m due in 3 weeks and I’m actually not scared at all; I feel like I have a good chance of a positive experience (no matter how the baby comes out).

    I was in much less pain than the videos suggested and I think the videos freaked out both me and my Darling Husband

    I’m not even pregnant and I’ve probably watched 10 live births so far. They make me cry every time. It’s just so amazing *sniff*
