Check Under the Hood

  1. MWahaha

    I am good at ruining people innocence.

  2. I like turtles.

  3. The birthing pool series wasn’t enough?

  4. @KAOSS: It looks like that “baby” is coming bum first. It also makes me thank god that my second ended in a cesarean and I avoided that.

  5. My brother was born ass first. Not by c-section either. Yeouch. No thanks.

    Wonder why no one has posted C-section photos… hmm


    “dear God!!!”

    Ohhh, THAT’S why…

  6. KAOSS: LOL! I was soo happy when they said I could have a section. She was a 9+ pounder! It wouldn’t have happened any other way. I salute your mom though. She’s a far tougher woman then I. I would guilt trip my kids if they pulled a stunt like that on me. 🙂

  7. @KAOSS I have some great pics of my son being born breech by c-section. Though you won’t find them on my facebook…

  8. OMFG. WTF? As a mother of three I speak from experience.

    Birth and motherhood are beautiful things – for the mother and child. For everyone else, including most fathers, its a gross, sweaty, painful, bloody, fluidy, mess oh nastiness that does NOT need to be posted for all the world to trip over on your FB page. UGHH

    The ultimate overshare.

  9. @yaya: Totally agree. My poor husband and Mom. I wouldnt want to see anyone go through what I did to bring the kids into this world. But I appreciate them for it and for keeping the teasing afterwards to a minimum. This pic is tame but I can only imagine what the rest of the album looks like. (shudders)

  10. @Me agreed, my poor hubby was totally traumatized by the whole process, lol but I took secret pleasure in his discomfort.

    Never understood those people who insist on having brothers, sisters, dad, gramma & grandad, the butcher, the mailman, etc. in the delivery room. It’s bad enough to have every intern in the hospital coming in and out to inspect your nether regions let alone invite the whole damn neighborhood!

  11. @yaya I had my Mom there too bc my husband as much as I love him is useless sometimes. I had a friend that wanted her brother in there too. (shudders) I had my kids at a teaching hospital and it was like being a test subject for all the interns. It was like get the hell out of here and find someone elses bits to practice on! And when I had complications with my son a billion people trooped in the room. I no longer am embarassed by anything though.

  12. Should have thought of that before going to a teaching hospital then.

  13. @chiiro: Yeah in retrospect you’re right. But in the city I live in the best hospital was the teaching one. Im all for learning and helping out. But when you are in severe pain and you have to wait while the new guy learns something, before you get your epidural. It can make a person mad. He’s lucky I didnt kick him in the head.

  14. TMI! Thankfully you can’t see mom’s clam w/baby heading out but still… If you have to take those pictures, keep them to yourself. It’s a private if not family moment.

  15. If you go to the STFU parents website, there is a facebook picture of a woman in labor, butt-naked, and the baby is crowning. They put smiley faces over everything so you couldn’t see it, but yeah, gross. I have a 2 1/2 year old, and one due in April, and I would never put a picture like this up there.

  16. Why do people think that everyone wants to see them giving birth?! If I wanted to, I’d just have a kid of my own… shweet jeezuz!

    Compared to some of the stuff on this page, your ‘crowning’ earrings are actually quite tasteful: http://www.etsy.com/shop/VulvaLoveLovely

    My personal favourite is the Vagina Dentata Necklace . . .

  18. @Thesaurapist 13F: Did you see this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=33847852

    Im also little surprised the vagina wallet/pouch wasn’t more vagina-ish. I guess digging for you keys/a tampon in a giant vagina would be a little weird.

    That sculptured vagina looks like it’s ready to kill. It has teeth? Yeah, way to make vagina’s more friendly and lovable.

    I once ate at an Italian restaurant and I had Tortellini and every single piece looked like a vagine. Argh. My brother laughed as I was talking to him while I had a piece of pasta on my fork, he made me look and I was shocked. It was like the chef had made them like that on purpose!
    If eating vagina pasta wasn’t bad enough, try eating it with a bolognese sauce. Could have been worse though, could have had it with a cream sauce. I wouldn’t have been able to eat it though.

  20. Christ on a cracker

    Why do people think is okay to take a picture of a woman in labor?! If it was me, I’d go for their jugular with my teeth and a rusty knife.

  21. beautifuldisasterxo

    why the hell would someone send this in?? im 8 months pregnant and there will be no pictures taken of me while in labour and if someone tried i would throw that camera across the room.

  22. Is that pixalation or a black eye?

  23. really don’t see why this is on here or why anyone is getting their panties in a bunch about it. the only thing that gets me is how the poor woman is in a hospital on her back hooked up to all sorts of machines- so not how a normal, comfortable birth should go. and seriously, anyone who is happy to end up with a c-section for anything other than a TRUE medical emergency has got something wrong in their head. do you realize that is MAJOR abdominal surgery?! There is so much risk involved it’s not even funny. Too bad this country has been fooled into believing that it’s normal and perfectly healthy. idiots…

  24. @msfeather: do you actually know what you’re talking about, or are you just some propaganda fed angst ridden teen? Do you have any idea how much risk is involved in regular child birth? I actually worked in OB, so I actually know the danger of both….

    You should stop worrying about the women getting C-sections (because it’s usually not a choice– women have a LOT of problems related to birthing) and start concerning yourself with how dangerous DRIVING is… or eating JUNK FOOD…..

  25. Right, that’s why our country’s rates of both maternal and infant mortality are higher than any other industrialized nation while all over other industrialized countries anything except an emergency birth is left at home with midwives who know what they’re doing? wake up, it’s just doctors and hospitals who want your thousands of dollars for a big expensive birth that ends up “needing” intervention b/c the doc doesn’t want to wait for things to progress the way your body naturally knows how to do. i’m guessing you’re also a fan of formula feeding too. no wonder this country is in debt up to its ears

  26. twilightm81, what are you doing online? You should be in the kitchen, making your man a sammich while reading Twilight. Get to it, woman.

  27. We don’t pay anything here to have a baby in Canada, and that’s the way it should be. Most of the time c-sections happen because either the mom or baby’s life is endangered, or because they can’t be born the natural way. A friend had to get a c-section because her pelvic canal (?) was too narrow to deliver her twins, so there was no way around it. I’d rather go to a hospital to give birth than risk complicating my or my baby’s life or health. Don’t generalize so much.

  28. @ YourDumb. Not to get into a health care debate (US vs. Canada vs. Europe etc.), but I could not resist pointing out that you do INDEED pay to have a baby. You ALL pay for ALL medical care (you just perhaps don’t write a check to the hospital). I don’t know how the tax system is structured in Canada, but even if it’s such that some don’t pay taxes they STILL pay “something”, since whatever government resources are directed towards medical care are unavailable for other services.

    Again, not debating one system vs. another… just don’t fall into the (easy) illusion that your health care is “free”.
