I'm hoping I'm not the only one, but....
I am dreading having to be so exposed during L&D. Like having my mary on display for the world to see and whichever other parts are going to lose their privacy. I'm not BFing, so thankfully I don't have to worry about anyone messing with the girls.
I'm also not too thrilled with the idea of a whole parade of people poking and prodding, (I've been told that the hospital I'm delivering at is a teaching hospital, so there are interns and residents and such). I'm going to include something about this on my birth plan, but I'm sure there are no guarantees.
Moms have told me that in the heat of the moment you really don't care, but I can't imagine myself not. I'm almost freaking out about this just as much as the rest of the delivery, (but not quite as much as the Texas Chainsaw Massacre which will inevitably befall my poor mary).
I know this is unavoidable in the whole process, but I was wondering if anyone could share some tips on how to maintain some sort of privacy. If I try to include such requests on my birth plan, will it even be acknowledged or will they just tell me "tough noogies"?
