There is a modern day group of women who, in order to prove their womanhood, have gotten together and decided to give birth to their young with absolutely no pain killer.
Going through such excruciating pain is supposed be an uplifting wonderful experience. So why don’t more people opt out for the Novocaine and laughing gas when they get their teeth pulled?
More and more women are having their babies at home these days to have a bonding experience free from the hustle and bustle of those horrid hospitals. They really do it to save money. So why not pull your teeth out at home? I did. It was such a wonderful bonding experience, that I decided to keep them and wear them on a necklace. My sister did. That’s where I got the idea.
For some reason, people freak out when I show them my wisdom teeth. I only had 2, though. That’s nothing. My husband has eight of them and they are still in his mouth. I asked him if I could have them when he’s done with them. He gave me this horrified look. What? I don’t get it.
Okay, I’m totally kidding about the teeth thing. I had pain killer when I had those teeth pulled. But I did give birth to twins with no pain killer. I was supposed to have a C-Section because one of them was breech. However, my kid’s butt was halfway out of the birth canal by the time I got to the hospital. I didn’t get an epidural. I didn’t even get a freaking Tylenol.
Why is childbirth supposed to be this wonderful and beautiful thing? It feels like your arms and legs are tight to different freight trains that are running down the track at full speed in opposite directions.
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.
No pain no gain.
If you want to be muscular and have those six pack abs that drive girls wild you have to lift weights until the point of utter exhaustion, your muscles hurt for days.
If you want to hot and sexy, you gotta go with out eating long enough to get to the desired weight. You have to be able to endure the stomach pains for a while.
If you want to be a doctor, you have to endure the pain in the brain that you get when you try to comprehend organic chemistry.
But childbirth? Why is is so important to go through all that pain for nothing? I didn’t even get a trophy for that, or a medal of endurance.
