I refuse to get my tubes tied. If we decide we ever want a totally permanent BC method, hubby's going in. My theory: I carry the babies and go through the pain of childbirth, he gets to go through some pain associated with making them! Plus the whole thought of being cut open scares me. I'm a real chicken, I still can't believe I managed to have 2 children, and am having a third!
DawnT: I have practically no veins at all anymore, after my first I swear they sucked all the blood from me! My nurse, who is excellent, and very gentle, hates having to take my blood, because she has to take it from my hand, and it is soooo slow. I start bruising the second she even sticks the needle in. I'm mainly afraid of a needle in my back, I'm afraid if I move I'd be paralyzed. But I tend to tense up so much I probably wouldn't move, but it still scares me.
If it came down to it, I probably would have an epi if I needed a c-section, because I think I would truly feel lost by not seeing my baby come into the world. In fact had a few pregnancy dreams about all of a sudden I have a baby, but couldn't remember for the life of me how he was born. And waking up not knowing made me feel like I missed something and it was just a dream! Besides, what kind of gruesome birth story can I tell if I'm knocked out and don't know what happened! But whatever happens, as long as I end up with a healthy, beautiful baby, then it's all good!
lol simon's mommy! You mean you don't want your own football team! I know what you mean though, this is my third, and I'm feeling weird about it because my youngest is going to be 5, so I'm going to be giving up all the freedom I have of no diapers, bottles, and all that. Sometimes I find myself thinking whether or not I'm insane for wanting to go through the middle of the night feedings, and all the other not so fun stuff that goes along with babies. Plus, all the freedom I gave up just by being pregnant, no amusement park rides, no summer parties. At least it is all worth it in the end, but I don't think I want to go through it again after this.
