As the big day quickly (not really, it's like slower than Christmas) approaches, I've been feeling the need to write you a love letter. Not because I'm in love with you, but because I DO care for you and all that you've done for my family (picture wise...I can never repay you) and I hope to keep you a friend after all is said and done on Saturday morning.
I'm assuming with me doing the whole natural birthing experience (except for the fact that I'll be pumped with pitocin which will make my contractions about 50 times WORSE) that I may be in SLIGHT pain for several hours. In my experience (watching over 500 various birthing shows DAILY) I have come to realize that being in INTENSE pain for several hours can, on occasion, cause one to act rash. SO rash, in fact, that they may say OR do things that are not normally of their nature.
I worry about this. A LOT.
Now, I know My Lover will be there, but I'm not so much concerned with what he sees and hears because he's quite forgiving. He better be.
But you, dear sweet Candace, have only seen one side of me up until this point. I worry that the vapid behaviour I normally carry with me will turn into one of MADNESS AND RAGE. I worry that there may be gnashing of teeth, pulling of hair and spewing of bodily fluids. As you can see, I expect the worst....BUT I hope for the best.
This letter is to warn you of what you may witness on Friday and to ask a simple request of you to NOT JUDGE ME. I really am a normal vapid person regardless of what you may see me turn into during my labor. Please try to remember the OLD Jessica and forget the scariness you may see that day.
Lastly, thank you again for doing this for our family. I can't wait to share it with you!
Normal VAPID Jessica
