101 Thoughts Every Mum Has During Labour
We’ve all been there. And if you haven’t yet, then here is something to look forward to.
Please tell me I am not the only one who went through this thought process during the whole gooey process. So here we go.. the Miracle of Birth. In 101 Thoughts. From the first contraction to the final push. Let the fun begin.
1. Was that a contraction?
2. Wow. I did it. And it wasn’t that bad.
3. I can do this, drug-free. I can be one of the mum’s that just sneezes a baby out. Okay. Here we go.
4. Hmm I wonder what I should wear when I get there. I’m thinking about the yellow nightie.
5. There’s another one. Easy peasy.
6. I better get the timer out.
7. This timer must be broken.
8. Ugh. My uterus is definitely broken.
9. Okay”¦. I must be at least five centimeters by now.
10. I wonder what my baby is thinking right now
11. Why aren’t these contractions regular??? WTF
12. Bugger it. I’m going to the hospital anyway
13. No, husband, I don’t want to call the hospital to ‘check’ I’m in labour. I AM IN LABOUR.

20. “It feels like period pain” my ass. More like it feels like a knife is cutting through my stomach.
21. Please, husband, take your time finding the park furthest from the hospital.
22. God, I hope the doctor on tonight is a female.
24. O-kay, I’m totally 8cm by now. This baby is gonna be here within the hour.

26. Okay. Drug-free may be unrealistic.
27. What the hell was that? Did I just pee?
28. Look at my husband over there. I would give anything to kick him in the nuts right now if I could fucking move from this doggy style position without breaking in two.
