I remember thinking the exact same thing. 🙂 I think everyone does. Amazing what your body can do. Ends up I didn’t have to worry about it, as my first daughter was born by emergency c section (footling breech) anyway.

That was the first thing I thought of when my test came back positive, “well it has to come out somehow, one of two ways” and it scared the crap out of me.

It’s hard to tell which is the lesser of two evils. You are either left w/ a scar or have all the other problems that ensue w/ a vaginal birth. I say we go the way of the Emperor penguins and just lay eggs for the men to sit on.

ROFL Yes, I clearly remember experiencing that epiphanic moment myself, and at right about the same stage of pregnancy as Ms. Garner. It scared the crap out of me.

Up until that point I’d thought “Hey, billions of women have done this before me; no problem!” Then, one day it suddenly dawned on me that I had a entire PERSON growing inside me – a person big enough to make me look as if I’d swallowed a fully-inflated beach ball. Like it or not, that big ‘ole little person was going to soon make his/her exit from my body. Yikes!

(BTW landroverdisco, I couldn’t agree with you more…)
