I always put off having my eyebrows waxed until the last possible moment before my forehead is more hair than skin. I reached the point yesterday where it looked like two blonde caterpillars wrestling so I stopped in at my nail place for a quick clean up. As I was sitting in the chair, my eyes tearing up and silently begging the technician to just hurry up already because this is painful I started thinking – If I think getting my eyebrows waxed really hurts, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO SURVIVE GIVING BIRTH TO A BABY????

    Ask for an epidural next time you get a wax and see if it helps. :)

    I prayed to God for a c-section, and God smiled on me. If my mom can do natural childbirth, though, you’ll be fine because my mom is seriously the biggest wimp ever. Plus they have good drugs now, so there’s that.

    Supposedly giving birth is manageable because, in the words of mi madre, you get a baby at the end. She had two vaginal births, so I hope she knows of what she speaks. With my brother it hurt more, apparently. I think that was a sign of things to come. With me she had an epidural and was laughing during delivery.

    I’ve never had to wax my eyebrows. Been lucky there. They just don’t need it.

    Well, my 90 lb mother gave birth to three babies over 8 lbs without so much as an asprin. I’m hoping that makes me genetically more likely to pop it right out.

    I lot depends on how your labor progresses, the size/position of the baby, and the use of pitocin. Although pitocin will speed things along, it doesn’t allow the tissues impacted by the birth process adquate time to stretch. Also laying on your back hooked to pitocin is physiologically illogical for delivering a baby, although it’s mighty damn convenient for the medical staff!

    Drugs, lady, get the drugs!!!

    As for the brows, I *try* to remember to take a dose of extra strength Tylenol about 30 mins before. This morning, since I’ve heard tell (ahem) of the rampant caterpillar problem, I used these Sally Hansen brow shapers, which are sharp lil safety razors that you sort of slide over your arches. Its worked fairly well esp since I’m plucking retarded and never remember when its time to take care of it.
