@heathaah:  I’ve been reading about it a little in some of my books, and while it seems like a great way to include my husband, it totally freaks me out. Fingers, and stretching and vegtable oil..eeek! Hopefully someone let’s us know if it worked for them.

I have been considering it. I haven’t had the courage to try it yet though. I’ve read a ton about it and the benefits.

I cant even imagine asking my husband to help me with something like that – “hey honey, can you come stretch me out please?”, it would never work for me πŸ™‚

I thought about trying it myself, but it became clear to me I was going to have a c-section so I never did it in the end.

@heathaah:  ha, yes, but you guys have already been put through the ringer by the fertility gods! 

and i also am weird like that – had I had a vaginal birth I really did not want my husband to watch it, which I know is not the norm!

Hahaha… I thought about using Google to find out what this was, but was afraid of what exactly the results would be.  But, from the responses of PP, I think I have a good idea!

I think if I seriously asked Darling Husband to do this, he would.  But I/we would find it so akward/uncomforatble/embarassing that I don’t think we would be able to go through with it.

Hopefully this is something I will have to decide one day…

But I think I would want to try with my Darling Husband, but I have a feeling it would end with us laughing uncontrolably Tongue Out

@heathaah:  Ha Ha! Awesome. And honestly, I don’t know how you would do it by yourself. It seems awfully complicated.

@pinky44:  I think the women who have done it  themselves are either former gymnasts or descendants of Gumby. I tried. I failed.

Darling Husband has been looking forward to this. I’m going to ask my midwife at my appt. on Monday when we should start doing this. I mean, do I just use the same olive oil I cook with? Ewww.

@mrsjazz:  “extra not-such-a-virgin olive oil” Hehhee.

I’m not into this step of life, but I’m thinking I’ll start practicing my yoga…if I hope to do this, I hope to do it alone. πŸ™‚
