A Few Things I Learned Today

I do not feel faint at the sight of blood.

Seeing a friends hoo-hoo is a surreal experience.

Women’s bodies are just amazingly made!

All babies are NOT ugly when born.

I cried like it was my own.

I’m not allowed to be a great-great-grandma yet. That position has already been filled.

If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, well, I’m half tempted to let you wonder. But if it’s just killing you, go HERE!

Awesome! I am glad you were able to be a part of it. My sis in law should be pushing my new niece/nephew out right now. I am just waiting for the call.

Hi Gayle, I'm Anna and this is my first comment I believe. I've been reading for about a week now and I love your blog. So glad you got to experience this today! It brought back a very cool memory of watching my adopted son born. Still can't believe his birth mom allowed me to be so close - it was amazing! I'll never forget how God blessed me with that surprise!
Happy Thanksgiving and I promise to come out of lurkdom and leave more comments in the future.

Yeah, I think I'd be a little weird about seeing someone's privates. Glad you stated something not everyone would mention.

And the crying--although I'm not normally weepy, a new baby's arrival will do it.

What a neat experience!

Great job staying on your feet!!! Happy Thanksgiving!

So great that you could be a part of the birth! I think most of us would feel a little weird about a friend seeing that part of us, but in days gone by it was normal to have family and friends attend births. How things change! :-)

Wow! I don't think I could do it. I start pushing just watching the Baby Story on TLC....
I never let anyone but my husband come into the room with me, but like Rachelle said, in the past it was the opposite: no men! only friends/sisters/mom & a mid-wife. I just finished reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and she wrote some interesting commentary on the whole labor & delivery process.
