Is My Husband Serious???

Okay, so earlier this afternoon, Albert and I watched an episode of "A Baby Story" together. Not Albert's favorite show, but I love it, so in the interest of spending some time together, he watched with me. This particular episode featured a mommy who had chosen a natural childbirth and was in quite a bit of pain during labor and delivery. She was very noisy and yelled a lot. She delivered a beautiful, healthy baby boy and was very happy with her choice to birth naturally.
Here is the point of my story. While the mommy in labor was yelling and hollering and asking her midwife for help my darling husband turns to me and reminds me that this was what I sounded like while having Kambree (and I did get an epidural, it just didn't work). He then continued on to say "I don't know why you women have to yell and holler like that. It can't hurt all that bad. I mean, I'm sure its uncomfortable and there might be some displeasure but its not like anything is breaking. There is already a hole there for the baby to come out of. It's not like a broken bone or anything."
Is he freakin kidding me??? At first I tried to argue with him and assure him that yes, indeed childbirth hurts very badly. And he continued to INSIST that it doesn't. WTH?????
This, after he has been trying to talk me into another attempt at natural childbirth. AND, he complains that I am mean to him during labor!
I think he needed a woman who practices silent birthing. But that's so NOT me! LOL!

Wow, if my husband would have said that too me he would have been in SO much trouble. I guess it just can't be understood without actually experiencing it,

Ang! I can't believe you are throwing him under the bus like this. Do you know how many women are going to want to kick his a$$ after reading this? Albert, you better duck and run!

I am sure he isn't the first man to think it, just the first that is brave enough to actually SAY it!!! Men are clueless aren't they???? :) It's alright Albert, we still love you even though you are misguided. LOL!

You know I'm pretty much sitting here speechless. Does he think every woman ever born was a wimp? Why does he think that anesthetic is needed?!!!!!!!!!!!! And I can't believe you didn't punch him! Now I only went through labor once (6 c-sections) but yes....IT HURT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Am here praying!
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

He should be birthing no. 10, then you would hear him change his opinion. My hubby was off buying smokes when baby no. 1 was almost due to born (bored!), cleaning a fishing reel when I was in labour with no. 2 and with no. 3, I gave him something to do, operating the video camera. We just make it look so easy!! Lucky for him he didn't come too close at the time. I probably wouldn't have been too distracted to throw a punch!

OH.MY.GOD! I'd have to punch a hole the size of my fist in the tip of his penis and let him tell me if it hurts or not... LOL

WTH? How can he possibly be serious after you have had this many babies???

Albert... seriously!?!

OKay Albert- I had two kids pop out of me on the same day au naturale and damnit it hurt! Really bad! Really really bad! And they cut me to get Mari to come out with nothing! Can you imagine trying to piss a boulder out your penis but it won't come out so a guy grabs a knife and slices you a bit further so it can barely squeeze out and tear you further in the process??? That being said- I would go natural again. Yes it hurt like nothing else every has but it was still part of the experience. But I am also a tad crazy....

Still can't believe this. You need to write a new update cuz I get irritated every time I think about it.
Know that you're always in my thoughts and prayers!
Ephesians 2:8-9: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Psalm 63:1-3: O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
