3TC – Birth

Arms going numb, I struggle to grab a tissue to wipe the sweat from my face. It was only a few minutes into labor and I fear more pain is coming. It seems my body is not under my control and even my birthing classes now seem a distant effort to withstand this ordeal. I will, I have done it before and the results are worth it. I try to keep this in mind, as I breathe short sharp breaths.
