Birth Plan

While pregnant, I had read and heard a lot about birth plans.
Some girls get all crazy about these things and plan their labor and delivery down to the minute.
I never made one for my first kid.

I like to plan things and be in control but I'm reasonable enough to know that you can't plan that mess.

You especially can't plan it if you give birth in a hospital. The doctors are going to do what they think is best no matter how organized your birth plan is.... even if you typed it up in a cute font.

With #2, I made one anyway.

So, a few weeks ago when I went to the hospital in labor, I brought my birth plan.

I handed it to the L&D Nurse folded up. I could tell she was thinking," Ugh.... not another chic with an annoying birth plan...."
After getting me taken care of, she opened it up:
She was amused............... and I got an epidural.


  1. Haha that's great!!! The nurse was probably so relieved that you had a sense of humor!!!

  2. That was my birth plan from the moment I found out I was pregnant. I hate pain.


Speak with your heart or your private parts, either one is fine with me.
