Now, I apologize if you’re all tired of hearing about my sister’s pregnancy, but too bad. I think it’s fascinating and hilarious.
Remember when Em looked like this:
That was in June for little Kai’s birthday…Em was only a few months pregnant and Tomoe was getting ready to explode. (BTW, I love that I have a different hair color in that picture.)
Anyway, this is Em’s first kid so she really doesn’t know what to expect. Today, she called me at work to tell me she was feeling horrible and everything was hurting.
She said “I feel like my back is going to come out my butthole.” That was the best thing I heard all day and I had to write it down. I also shared it on Twitter. She also said that the lightning bolts shooting into her crotch have turned into a full on storm. Cool. As you can see, Em has a very different way of describing things happening to her body.
Fortunately, I am planning to be present at the birth…in the room. I’m so excited and I’m planning to do a birth story post too. I know everyone does these, but it’s rarely from the perspective of a crazy person, who has no intention of ever giving birth (unless I’m paid a lot of money) and who thinks most body parts are gross.
This is going to be fun!
