I'd rather be . . .

You know those stickers and t-shirts with the "I'd rather be . . " theme?  "I'd rather be fishing."  "I'd rather be hunting."  Etc.  Well, the other day I was having a hard day of work, as usual, and my husband came home and asked how things were going.  I said, "Well, I'd rather be in labor."  And we both started laughing.  But, seriously, most of the time, I would rather be in labor than be working.  I'd rather be getting the IV that I am deathly afraid of, pacing the floor, writhing in pain, and pushing a baby out.  And then having people dote on me for the next several months while I go about being a mommy.  I don't care what it takes, and how painful labor is, I want that baby!  I would even go so far as to say that I'd rather be having a c-section, as long as I'm getting my baby out of the process.  So, it's safe to say at about any point in my day, "I'd rather be in labor."  I should make a t-shirt or a bumper sticker!
