Push it or not to push it

Here's a little song I've been singing to myself ever since I was told last week there's a good chance I could deliver this baby "naturally". I'm experiencing intense mixed emotions, for sure. Eik. Sing along, if you like -- I'm pretty sure you all know it :)

Ah, push it
Ah, push it

Oooh, baby, baby
A 9lb baby?!

The vaginal abyss!

Ow! Baby!
The decision's here!

[Now wait a minute, y'all
This pushin’ ain't for everybody
Only the flexi people
So all you fly mothers, get on out there and push
PUSH, I said!]

The decision's here, and the doc
Wants me to push it, babe
Always thought I’d get another C, so it’s a shock
The recovery time’s better, that we all know
But I didn’t overly want my hairy vaj to be put on show
To push it

Ah, push it - push it good
Ah, push it - push it real good

Hey! Ow!
Drugs are good!

Oooh, baby, baby
A 9lb baby?!

Yo, yo, yo, yo, baby-pop
Yeah, you -- don’t gimme a kiss
Better get me the drugs or else I'm gonna get pissed
Can't handle the thought of poopin’ too, like I know I could.
Don’t push it…

Or push it good
P-push it real good

Oh, shit.
The vaginal abyss!

Boy, you’re now gettin’ the snip
If I have to experience my lady bits rip.

Ah, push it.


  1. Okay, this just made me snicker! I say go for it but my lady bits have already been through that hell and back . . . sort of . . . twice before. ;)

  2. You can do it! Do it real good!
    10lb veteran here.... take the drugs, ALL of them.

  3. My Turkey Purse was shattered twice...

  4. I heart you, but also hate you a little for getting this song stuck in my head. The only consolation is that I will never have to push something the size of a watermelon out of something the size of a pear. Good luck with that!

  5. I think I need to take a shot of something harder than the Emergen-C drink in my hand currently before reading about lady parts ripping! ha! Good luck and pump those drugs!!!

  6. I had my first as a C-section and hope to have the next one naturally (with no medicine). Please share your experience! And good luck : )

    Make sure to have your hubby sing you this song and maybe natural birth will be a lot easier.

  7. Hahahaha! I have to pass this on to my daughter. She due to "push it" in November. :)

  8. Momma you got this I promise.. As a woman who pushed out 3 with no drugs at any point. If you can make it to transition you and in the downward slide and at that point drugs are a waste. and Yeah I had a 9 lber he was the easiest of the 3..

  10. The recovery may be longer with a c-section but at least you don't end up with a fanny like a bin lid ;)

  11. @Heather

    I know!! There's pros and cons for both, for sure.

    I'm torn...


  12. OMG, I'm DYING!!! For whatever reason, your posts are emailed to me a day late (weird?) so I had no idea what you were talking about yesterday. HA!

    So, I was in labor for 36+ hours, and I can tell you that the idea of going through childbirth again doesn't scare me. Okay, it does a little, but if I ever do it again, I would totally opt to go natural. As long as there are drugs, of course. :) The anesthesiologist (did I spell that right? I'm too tired to check...) followed me to my room when I was admitted, and within seconds of having the epidural, the pain was GONE.

    I'm obviously pro-drugs. HA!
