10 things that you worried about when giving birth to your baby

August 242012

I gave birth in May and yes I did worried about different things when giving birth to my little baby. There were too many things actually. I was worried about it many times but it turned out they didn’t really matter. What really matters is that your baby is healthy and the rest is pretty insignificant.

I was worried about whether my baby is going to be healthy, the pain that I have to suffer during labor and so on. It was quite miserable to think about but I knew that the most important thing will be to hold my little baby in my arms.

Well, I read an article about this topic and I think it’s quite fascinating and entertaining at the same time. Check this out:

Here are the 10 things I worried about most before giving birth that I realized did not mattered AT ALL once I actually did it:

What to wear
What to wear? What to wear? This isn’t the prom, people. The jig is up. I’m giving birth for chrissakes. What I’m wearing is whatever the hell is going to get that baby out of me fastest and with the least amount of pain. What I’m wearing? Sheesh.
Giving birth on the way to the hospital
Granted I only live about ¼ mile to the hospital as the crow flies (when you live somewhere rural, you’re allowed to say that with a straight face and no irony). But still. I read all of those stories about women giving birth in cabs, on sidewalks, and on transatlantic flights, and I was mortified at the prospect. Even though my water broke at 2 a.m. with my older daughter, it wasn’t until 8:30 p.m. that night until I actually gave birth. It can get really slow, people. That’s why it makes news when it’s not.
What to listen to
A birth mix? Music to have contractions by? Admittedly, my only birth plan was to give birth. But I guarantee you that 9 out of 10 women with birth plans give up somewhere around the 19th contraction and change tunes, as in, turn off the music and scream, “Get this sucker out of me!”
