  4. The most ridiculous birth plans you've had the pleasure of reading
    I am glad you have that attitude. Some nurses do not. I think your hospital is more progessive than the local one in my area.

  18. Why is Pit started on spontaneous labor?
    The only reason I think I got "pitted" was for the staff's sake, not me or my baby. There I am, laboring happily along with great contractions, no pre enclampsia, and all of a sudden a nurse rushes...
