Did you happen to have a big baby? I had a Big Baby. Were you one of those women that has birthed a baby 9lbs 5oz or more? If your answer is yes, then I am welcoming myself into the big baby club…. and in a way… it kinda sucks.
Every time I go somewhere and people ask me how old my 13 day old daughter is… and I tell them.. I get the “OH WOW!” response followed by being asked how big she was at birth… which is then followed by the “Your poor vagina” look. I have to admit, I am not a fan of people immediately looking at me, pity in their eyes when they find out that I had a 10lb baby.. and I certainly don’t need the grocery clerk at the local health food store thinking about my vagina and the carnage it just endured. Comment that she’s cute… FINE! Comment that she looks like her Daddy and her Brother… Great! But look at me with THOSE eyes… and you can just STOP! Just STOP IT NOW. Stop wondering if I still have an anus… stop wondering if I will ever be able to walk properly again. JUST STOP IT!
Yes, I had a big baby. Yes, it was uncomfortable and still is a little.. Am I ok? Yes! Does my vagina need your sympathy? NO! This is almost as bad as being 7 months pregnant and being told “Oh my goodness you are going to pop any day!” NO I WASNT, I WAS JUST PREGNANT WITH A FREAKING GIANT!
Why she was so big? I don’t know! My son was 6lbs 13oz and a week early, she was huge and a day late… but regardless of WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHY or HOW… My vagina doesn’t require your looks of sympathy… It can’t see them anyways.
