Labour – it must be bearable… How do you distinguish between a rational thought and ‘kidding yourself’ when you feel a bit too positive about something? This is the question I’ve been asking myself for the last couple of weeks with regards to labour. I’m simply of the mindset that if people have been doing it all this time and continue to do it multiple times, it can’t be that bad! I realise it’s really bad, but not as one would perhaps fear. Am I setting myself up for a massive shock? I’m starting to think the same around caring for a baby… I’ll totally still be able to do all the things I do now… I think that will be a definite shock. I don’t know the answers yet.
