Why is it that when you tell others that you are choosing a natural childbirth that they start pushing epidurals down your throat? I am 26 weeks and am sooooooo sick of this conversation already. I can't believe how many people I have told (because they ask, of course) that I am having a natural childbirth and they are instantly laughing at me or making fun of me! Then after they get that out they proceed to try to convert me to an epidural like a seedy religion trying to convert me to worship their master? Does anyone else get sick of this? I was having a filling at my dentist's office yesterday and the subject came up then after the filling, like I want to sit there and talk, the assistant proceeds to tell me that she had epidurals with both of her children and that I should really consider it and not go through the pain if I don't have to. Then one of my goods friends asks me and I tell her and she says "Good Luck with that!" and "I guess you can't tell a pregnant woman anything!". I mean, would this bother anyone else? The last time I checked this was my decision and my right to choose how I want to bring my baby into this world. I am not against epidurals, they are wonderful if you choose to go that way. I just view it like this: I have waited 11 yrs for this baby, I want to experience it ALL, good and bad. I want to give my baby the most healthy, natural start to life......so WHY IS THAT A BAD THING?!
