Their spouse will spend the first five fucking years of the relationship trying to convince them that they don’t have to fucking lie about stupid shit.
Triple posting this. I want lots of input!
Yesterday we shared with our pediatrician that we were expecting. I wasn’t going to discuss where the baby will be born, until the doc started discussing what we would do to inform him once the baby arrived at the hospital. We explained that we were happily planning a birth at home. He rolled his eyes and shared a story of his friend . Apparently the friend is head of the ER at a local hospital who’s baby was “rushed to the hospital” soon after birth and diagnosed with meningitis. I guess this scary story was supposed to persuade me into having a hospital birth??
But here’s my real question: how do you deal with well-meaning scare tactics that people throw at you when you mention your well-planned out home birth??
OMG, your single mom posts are making me cry today. How the fuck do some of you get through the day without punching a wall??
So we’re planning a home birth. We haven’t made it a public topic, in efforts of not making it a topic of debate. Let’s see how long it takes before either of our families start telling people….
I don’t even recognize the majority of people I follow from this blog. If I accidentally unfollow you and we’re like former BFF’s let me know.
