at least it’s only first trimester

Posted on: 31 August 2011

The phrase “trying for a baby” throws me off, and it throws Kevin off even more. The one time someone asked, we weren’t quite sure how to respond. Maybe because “trying” suggests effort and work, neither of which I associate with sex. “Trying for a baby” suggests timing and planning and scheduling … and makes Kevin think people just aren’t having enough.

A couple weeks ago I stumbled across some birthing videos online and, idiotically, watched them. OH CRAP. First impressions?

  • I don’t want a c-section.
  • I don’t want an episiotomy.
  • I think the epidural scares me more than a natural birth.
