Of course, after the post on my blog where I used the site MyOBsaidWHAT?!? as an example of how natural birth advocates can be negative and bigoted, four submissions I sent there were published. Here are the links to the quotes, the first four are from the OB I saw while pregnant with my DD, and the fourth is a nurse at the hospital from after my DD was born.
I LOVE that blog! Some of the things that have been posted are really out there, hey?
Oh, and Thoughtful Thursdays are my fave.
It's cool they posted yours! I have some submitted as well, but haven't heard back yet.
I think I am going to link your blog on my site. I love your insight!

half of those made me want to vomit on the speaker, or better yet, deck him or her. then there were the awesome ones thrown in to give us all faith in humanity, i think i read for like 9 pages of those.
i cannot believe that those professionals actually believe the crap that comes out of their mouths!
BTW, how big is your husband?
my DH is 6'5" (he likes to weigh himself when he goes to prenatal appts with me, because smaller scales don't read that high) and weighs nearly 400 lbs. but nobody believes he weighs that much, he looks like he could play pro football... but he's a little soft around the middle
and surprisingly, i've NEVER gotten that comment from any of the OB's i saw while pregnant with DD. she was 8lb 8oz at 38 weeks when she was born though, so if i continue to have kids with this man and they all come out like her, i'll never really want to go overdue.... not that i wouldnt be up for the challenge, but i'm not sure i could handle fending off the well meaning Dr's at that point.
