So I got to thinking about pregnancy and birth (logical thoughts right now, huh?) I was talking to The Man about my OB and all the prenatal stuff. He might have nodded off a couple of times or been playing a game on his cell phone, I can’t be sure so we will give him the benefit of the doubt that he was really interested in what I had to say. (Yeah, I will go with that)
I started thinking about The First Birth and what that must have been like for The First Parents. According to The Bible that I have read and from what I have heard…the only instructions/advice/warnings/etc. that God gave Eve for childbirth was (this is a loose interpretation) “It’s gonna hurt ya girl!” I saw no conversations about the “birds & bees”, conception, gestation, labor and delivery. Can you just imagine the thoughts and conversations that went on back then?
Adam: “Eve, you are really starting to put on some weight. You may want to cut back on those figs and dates”
Eve: “God, what is going on with me?….”what’s a baby”….”how does it get out”….”it comes out WHERE?”…”How big does it get?”…”9 months? what’s a month?”
Adam: “Eve, we have a boy” “Yes dear, everything is fine except for this tail that comes out of his stomach”
Eve: “Adam, do not ever touch me again” “It’s your turn to change the leaf”
