My midwife said just to use our regular olive oil. The whole thing seems so awkward and silly, but honestly, I’d like to do everything I can not to tear.

My DH said to the midwife when she was explaining this, “I’ll just bring some bread in the bedroom too to sop up what’s not needed” I wanted to die of embarassment, but she laughed.

@heathaah:  I am only 25 weeks, and I can still “see myself” down there.

Honestly, I don’t think I could ask DH to do this for me. I just feel like it would be awkward…

Anyone know why oil needs to be used and not just lube?

@MissDareDevil:  I think you can use lube, like KY, too.

I’m willing to go through the awkwardness if it does, indeed, help prevent me from tearing. Also, I could still see my goods at 25 weeks, but at almost 30 I can’t!

@MissDareDevil:  I think because oil can be absorbed into the body to help with stretching. Lube just “greases” it up. LOL.
