(An old entry with my thoughts and memories of Childbirth, and Planned Grandparenthood  )

I went through childbirth 5 times.  You would think that by the fifth time it would have gotten easier, but that was not the case.  All it did was prepare me for what was to come.  During my first delivery I had no idea what to expect and could only take it as it came.  When the contractions began for the fifth pregnancy I suddenly remembered... 'Oh yeah, this hurts!'  Unfortunately by that time is was too late for a condom.

One thing that did get better were the babies themselves.  I had never seen a newborn human before and when they held up my first born I remember being horrified by the hairy, purple and red screaming creature covered with blood and white goo.  I demanded to know what was wrong with it but all the doctors and nurses just smiled and said it was a beautiful healthy boy.  It was like a scene from Rosemary's Baby!  It wasn't until he was cleaned up and clothed that I began to see his human traits.

When they announced that my fifth child was a girl I was once again horrified and asked if they were sure.  I already had a 3 year old daughter at home and had learned enough to know that I did not want another one in the house.  Apparently everyone else felt the same because none of the other mothers in the maternity ward would trade with me.

After 5 children I called it quits and had my husband neutered. Childbirth was a painful yet fulfilling experience.  When I looked down at a peacefully sleeping baby there was never any question that it was all worth it.  Now that those babies have grown up I am beginning to have a change of heart.  That's okay though, revenge will be mine in the form of my grandchildren!

Dorn, being male I cannot relate to childbirth and pain and would rather not. Being a father of a daugther and two granddaughters I can feel your pain. My sons and grandsons are great. Now I cannot even remember what I ever saw in girls.
Hope you have many grndchildren and enjoy them as much as I do mine.

I've warned my family that we may not get to meet your family when we are in Colorado Springs next month since it coincides with the safe arrival of your ever-so-handsome son coming home! We are supposed to arrive around May 20th or so...that sure is a beautiful grandbaby you have there.
