Realization O’ the Month: March

Diarrhea cramps are exceedingly more painful than labor contractions.

Before I had Kaia, I used to think (as I writhed on the bathroom floor in pain) “Ok, if I can get through this, surely I’ll be able to get through the terrible pain of labor!”. My Mom agreed and assured me that was the closest way to describe labor.

Lemme tell ya, when I have an upset gastrointestinal tract, I’d much, much rather be in full on labor at that point. At least I could breathe through those cramps and contractions. At least I could get a hold of what my body was going to be doing next. At least I knew something living and breathing would be arriving at the end.
