Reasons not to have children

A co-worker's wife had a baby a little over a week ago. Today is his first day back and we were talking about the whole thing. He said that there was a first time mom in the room next door. Apparently she had gone from 7 centimeters to 10 centimeters in a matter of minutes and they couldn't get the epidural in quick enough so she had to do it natural. I guess she was screaming and there were banging noises on the wall. He described it as "like a soap opera." Yeah, he freaked me out.

Reason #3 not to have children:
Losing control of yourself during labor and the possibility of not being able to get the epidural when you want it.

There may be many reasons too not have children, but I think that there are many more reasons to have children. There is nothing better than bringing a new life into this world!

Yeah, I'll be the first one to admit that I was REAL sure they didn't miss that epidural. I was very clear that it should be administered at the earliest possible opportunity.

I pretty much walked in and asked for my epi. no reason to be brave, I realized after my first, that they charge you out the ass either way. Might as well get your moneys worth!
