@June232012:  Heeeeeck yes. I think childbirth is beautiful. It makes me cry every time. If I have a pregnancy/mommy dream, they ALWAYS include breastfeeding. That’s one thing I look forward to most from having a baby – breastfeeding. Weird?

@ChuckNorris:  Not weird at all!  I’m looking forward to it, too.

@June232012:  I’ve looked them up, but I can’t say I’ve felt particularly positive while watching them.  It’s just….OW!  I end up making a horrible cringe-face the entire time.

When we were first TTC, and I was trying to calm the raging baby fever within me, I did a WHOLE lot of reading/watching of births, hoping to scare myself. Yep, didn’t work. As much as I’m not looking forward to the pain, I think its so exciting, and any child would be worth it.

@ChuckNorris:  ALL of my pregnancy related dreams also include breastfeeding. Seriously, its bizarre, because I don’t have this desperate desire to breastfeed or anything, I think it might just be a dream-me way of saying ‘HEY, I want a baby.’

It’s interesting to hear other people say they look forward to breastfeeding. I’m on the other end of the spectrum, because breasts are such a sexual thing for me and my Darling Husband, I’d be afraid of breastfeeding…. 

I know this isn’t logical because boobies are around to feed babies as their JOB, but I’d feel like a sexual deviant for letting a baby nurse. I’d almost want to pump primarily for that reason alone. Is that normal?

@June232012:  I saw my brother being born!!! As my parents had planned that, they made sure that we have watched live births on videos etc before my bro was born so we were prepared for the, erm, gore.

Yes, I admit I’ve done it…I usually cringe when watching it and think “how the HELL can I do that?”  But all the moms I’ve talked to say it’s the most painful but most rewarding thing they’ve ever done.  I have a HUGE pain threshold so I don’t know what I worried about….and waiting so long to get pregnant with the first makes me just want to do it ONCE!!!

@audry2222:  Lol, I watch that too, I cry every single time. They have a US version too, its interesting to see the different birthing styles. In the states it seems they put everyone on petocin + epi. I found it really interesting to compare the two shows.

@texasbee:  Your lucky you have a HUGE pain threshold. I am such a lightweight. Literally. I will proabably pass out before I am a cm dialated…

@audry2222:  I was (still am) obsessed with the Brit version of ‘One Born Every Minute’. They were very pro-natural birthing, and I was fascinated.

Lol, I’ve grown up on videos of chidbirth/c-sections (my mum is an OBGYN, I’d sit and watch them with her when I was really small, and even to this day). Kind of get used to it after a while, I tend to be more fascinated in the way birth complications are handled – that there is the main point of focus for me. Just the way I was brought up. (Fyi – NOT TTC, just thought I would chip in lol).

@Mrs. Jaguar:  Yup – I know in my mum’s birthing ward (the entire OBGYN section here is the best in the region), they will try and use as little intervention as possible, even the OBGYNs here are the same way. Unless the patient requests something or something is REALLY going wrong, or the woman is high-risk, then they will leave it up to the midwives to deal with.

@StuporDuck:  I believe in France that is a pretty common feeling… Read “Bringing up Bebe” by Pamela Druckerman.

I don’t know if I’m excited to give birth… I watched a live birth video a few years back, and I nearly threw up.  I told Darling Husband to stay away from that end, if he’s even in the room.  🙂
