High on it

Ah, my Jill. Go read her cool post! Then send this link and other stories like it to the nearest ignoramus who tries to compare your natural childbirth ecstacy to dental work or other idiotic misinformed yucky medical events.

I think one of my BIGGEST pet peeves is when people compare child birth to dental work. When my dentist yanks a tooth I get a big hole in my head. When I go through child birth I become a mother and get a baby. Yeah, those things are JUST ALIKE.....@@

Wow! That was QUITE a post. I'm like Rixa in that I've never had a drop of alcohol, I've never even thought about taking drugs, and I, too, save my caffeine consumption for long road trips (like the one I'm facing in about a week and a half). And yet, I LOVE childbirth. I love that I can do something that monumental and come out feeling like a million dollars on the other side. I certainly identified with the commenter who said that if birth didn't take nine months to work up to, she'd do it every week. Honestly, I feel the same way. I don't particularly like pregnancy (at least not anymore), but I do love being in labor. I do NOT like being in the dentist's chair, though. No way. That's like trying to compare apples with airplanes or something else just as ridiculous.
