jessica simpson pregnant
Don't judge me for reading In Touch. But I occasionally check them out to get my celebrity fill and I couldn't help but get sucked in by a story about Jessica Simpson, who's pregnant. According to the site, a source told them Jessica is so afraid of giving birth naturally that she's scheduled a C-section. According to the source, "Jessica has no tolerance for pain" and "The thought of going into labor scared the bejeezus out of her."
Now I could care less if a woman chooses to have a C-section or pushes the baby out the old-fashioned way. I happen to be of the belief that having a baby shouldn't be traumatic, so however you feel most comfortable getting to the end goal is up to you.
But as a mom who delivered naturally, I have to say having a C-section seems exponentially more scary than pushing the baby out. The thought of having my stomach and uterus sliced open is downright terrifying. Granted, I've never had any surgery--unless you count having my wisdom teeth extracted and that was miserable enough--so it may be worse in my mind, but yikes.
Not that pushing a 7 pound baby out is a walk in the park, but if given the choice I'm pretty sure I'd choose labor over C-section any day.
What about you? If you were scared and had to choose between C-section and vaginal delivery, what would you pick?
