Well, for baby #1 12 years ago, it was the midwife inviting my ex husband to see the head crowning without checking with me first while I was in the very indignified " on all fours" position. I know it may not sound like much but I felt so very exposed and vulnerable, I immediately hated her for it...even though she did an awesome job of coaching me into delivering my gorgeous 8.6" abby boy naturally.
For baby #2 5 months ago, it was more what i said that will stay forever in our minds. I have a bad habit of cracking jokes in times of stress, it helps me cope somehow. So while kneeling in the birthing pool at home, with my beloved husband facing me holding my hands for support and in between two contractions, I decided to tell him:
"Who knows, she might come out black!".......Now, I hope no one will take offence, but both my husband and I are very fair skin, blue eyed people and so it seemed very funny to me at the time as my Great, great grandmother was a black lady from the Antilles, and I was warned this could come out in my offsprings.
Hubby proceeded to tell me it wasn't funny, to which I replied: "yes, it is cos I said so!"....Men should know better than to argue back in these moments.
