The Daily Post Prompt – Never Again!


The Daily Post Prompt – for prompt page click here!

Have you ever gone to a new place or tried a new experience and thought to yourself, “I’m never doing that again!” Tell us about it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was 21 years old and looked like I swallowed a basketball. Now obviously that isn’t possible, but I did have some help from my husband impregnating me. So yes I was 9 months pregnant.

I loved being pregnant most of the time and I tried not thinking about the birthing process. It was my first child so I really didn’t know what would happen anyhow.

So labor starts and lasts 36 hours. Talk about not fun, labor is as non-fun as you can get. The pain is tremendous. You begin screaming and cursing at the baby’s father with every name in the book. You swear you will never do that again! NEVER!!

Then you take that sweet little baby home and love blossoms, growing bigger and bigger and weeks later you realize that you would do that again. It feels as if none of that awful birthing business and recovery happened at all.

PS I had another 20 months later and then again 8 years later. BUT the third one was the absolutely last child I was having. I couldn’t forget the pain this time. I was done! NEVER  AGAIN!

    I was in labor for ten hours before I even thought to go to the hospital. For me, it was like the cramps from my ovarian cysts so I painted my nails, watched TV, rode it out…Then hit my breaking point and went to the hospital for my wondermous epidural.
    I would give birth a thousand times before I’d ever go through pregnancy again. That messed my mental state up so bad I’d rather have a hundred root canals sans Novacaine. But I do love my bundle of…Um joy. Noise. Joyful noise?
