Prompt- Get it out!

Intense pain, can’t stop screaming. Oh why did I do this?

“You can bear down now and push.” He is so damn lucky he said PUSH!

I want this baby out NOW!

    Why do we do it? I did it twice. Silly me. But it’s well worth it. Love your story!

      Thank you Jeanna, I did it 3 times and that was enough. When I was a kid and still naive, I wanted 12 kids. If number 3 had been the first I might have only had 1, him! 🙂

    It’s easy for him to coach, right? Good thing we have short memories, or we’d never go for round two (or three, in your case.)

      If I wasn’t so worn out from contractions and pushing a baby out I would have shown them what I thought about their “don’t push now honey.” 🙂 Yeah, three and to think I wanted 12 before I knew what having a baby entailed. And if number 3 was first he would have been an only child LOL! Thank you for stopping by.

    There’s no other way but “out NOW” and I might have added “just stand there and don’t say a word” but of course I don’t exactly remember 😉 Yep! I can relate!

    Ha! Ain’t it the truth. Got so involved I had to reread it to find the word bear! Good job!

    Ha! It’s funny, that’s one of the first animal-verbs I thought of, and in the same context, too. 🙂 Must be a mother thing!
