Waiting for Baby

CIMG6029One of the things I find most interesting about the whole baby delivery process is the difference between the dramatic TV/movie version and real life. 

My experience has involved the use of an epidural each time, and I have no idea what a birth without one would be like, but I can say without a doubt that drugs are the way to go.

I can see the monitor from where I am sitting and the contractions are coming quite regularly (about every two minutes) and Melissa is quietly eating a popsicle.  I think she might take a nap afterwards.  This is nothing like the experience portrayed in Knocked Up.  I for one am glad, and I am sure Melissa is as well.
