scary thought

I don't know why, but I've been reading information on Unassisted Childbirth lately. I really, really don't know why. Two things about it don't make any sense: 1. I am not pregnant, nor do I expect to be anytime soon, and 2. I'm not considering UC for myself in the future. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about UC for those that want it. I don't. I have enough medical problems that if I'm giving birth, I want someone helping me. I do have great admiration, however, for those that do it. Still, it is completely illogical that I am reading about it lately.

Anyway, I was reading a list or something yesterday of the things one might want to have on hand. One of the items was "super glue in case of rips or tears." I asked Seth about it and he confirmed that super glue does the job and that a lot of surgeons are using superglue these days. Interesting. But here's the thing... if I were trying to super glue a tear... down there... by myself after I'd just given birth... oh my imagination runs wild with all the ways that could go wrong. There are just some things you DON'T want to glue shut. Ick.

And OUCH.
