With last weeks missed flashback, and awesome trip to the hospital (heavy on the sarcasm there), this week I wanted to post something birth/baby related.
This morning as I was standing in the kitchen, taking a minute to catch my breath after returning home from a long walk and trip to the park- a video flashed across the main computer screen (our screen saver is photos and videos), and I had to laugh. This video is horrible. So I guess... its kind of perfect?
Never in a million years did I think I'd ever share this video with anybody other than my own family, but- well what have I got to lose (outside of some of the best readers ever)?
A little background info. Let me set the scene for you.
**It was August 16th, 2006. Four years ago. I was scheduled to be induced two days later, but my water broke in the midst of a "stay up all night tonight, and sleep all day tomorrow, so I'll be well rested for my labor" power-through, and well... things started to get ugly.
About 6 or 8 hours into my labor, I hadn't yet had an epidural (I didn't get that until 12 hrs in), but I was exhausted, and miserable. So, they came and pumped my IV full of Demerol, after at least two hours of begging. Little did I know, this would make me completely insane, loopy, and about 5 seconds after Christopher turned off the camera (too bad he didn't keep filming), I erupted into a psycho fit of laughter, and then passed out for the next hour or longer, waking only to laugh.
I ended up laboring for 20 hours, without any progression, so I had a semi emergency c-section, and that was that.
This is me. 70 pounds heavier, 4 years younger, drugged up, talking about ice tubes. Enjoy...
