Epidural, What Is It Good For?

Absolutely Nothing

Amy arrives at the hospital with the idea that this labor would be as simple and easy as her first two.

Four hours later they break water and begin pitocin.

After three stabs, the epidural is put in, but never works. Panic sets in.

Help me! (scream, scream) I'm dying! (scream, scream) I don't want to do this. (scream) I can't do this! I'm not doing this any more! (scream). I can't breath. I like to scream.

Oh, my sweet baby. I love you. You are beautiful. I'm so happy

Amy collapses into a drug induced post traumatic shock sleep.

I am so glad you have a blog now! This post made me laugh so hard. Of course now I'll be singing hippy, anti-war protest songs all day. Thanks for that.

You are too funny.

P.S. He is such a CUTE baby! I'm in love.
