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!
