New Stuff

Being married is AWESOME! But I will say there has been a lot of adjusting on both ends. At church the ladies are so old they keep forgetting who I am and have asked me to stand up and introduce myself at almost every relief society meeting I have been to so far. Chris has some friends in the priesthood quorum, so that is good.

I've been trying to convince my hubby to sell both our beds and get a sleep number bed so we can both be just as comfy at night and so that I can sleep. Persuading him to this is still a work in progress. I never new he was this stubborn. Maybe I should focus on getting a really good pillow instead of a sleep number bed....

I watched a very excellent movie the other day, and I wanted to share it all with you. It's called "The Business of Being Born." I researched the statistics it presents, and got identical results. If you are interested in being informed a little bit more, you can buy it for only 7 dollars on itunes. Something else interesting that I found that this video doesn't point out is that the hospitals employ full time anesthesiologists that are there 24/7 to take care of only obstectrics. In order to pay these doctors what they believe they need to be paid, these hospitals need to maintain an epidural rate of 80%. So it makes sense to me that people don't understand the risks to them. No one wants to say anything or else the moncho doctor guy won't get paid.

"People in our culture spend more time researching to buy a car or a camera than they do checking out what their options are for birth."

Here is the link for the trailer for your enjoyment!

One thing about me: I youtube everything. So here is something I just heard about: completely UNassisted childbirth. No doctor, midwife, no nothin. Not a good idea I don't think, but it seemed to work out well for these mommas.

Watch and enjoy!
