can i have my fricking epidural NOW? the stupid Braxton-Hicks are getting strong enough that i'd better have the shortest labor on record! (in my family, at least; that won't be hard.) they HURT and the doctors just say, well, if you go into real labor, we won't stop you, and if you don't, it doesn't matter. excuse me? it matters if i'm in pain!
but they don't do pelvics. i don't understand why they're "routine" so many places if i don't need one. they think i'm a freak for wanting one, but why do they do them if they're not important?
just give me the damn epidural and i'll stop bitching.
