Ha! I was just taking a break from reading her blog to see what you'd posted today. How funny. I agree with your thoughts and I'm glad she's sharing this. Ok, gonna go refresh her page again and see what's happening. :)

HF, thanks, that's a fascinating link.

Several of my friends are currently pregnant, and I've been shocked by how ignorant of the process I am (which is especially embarrassing for a professional biologist)! Pregnancy education at schools would be a great idea, if only the politics could be kept out of it.

I raise a suspicious eyebrow at this Kim person--I'm sorry, but how far into your labor are you actually capable of blogging?!

Mythago,
Depends on the labor, and whether the computer is between you and the bathroom.
With my first, no way! But God is gracious, and after a few trial runs labor tends to be a little easier.

Wowza! I am so honored to have someone commenting on my blog while in LABOR!

I think the idea of pregnancy education in schools is a great idea. I am fairly ignorant myself. I think people tend to think of it as an easier thing than it is. Of course, KimC actually does make it look easy.

Kim's mother is 52, not Kim herself! Lovely little boy.

Oops. That's what happens when I read too fast. I thought that seemed really amazing. I corrected the update.

Wow, thanks for the unbelievable link to the Echidne posts. The husband who wants his blogger wife (who would rather not vote) to vote, is obviously a pragmatist when it comes to principles. Here's an unkind thought: if only one could disenfranchise the wives, then maybe the political landscape in the U.S. would change...

Other "mommy bloggers" have blogged their labor before, and I love reading these "live" birth stories. (But no birth blogging for me -- my kids were all born well before I had a blog, and all of them were c-sections!)

By the way, some consider "mommy blog" to be an offensive, trivializing term -- though I`ve never minded it.
