This is it, folks!

wendywoowho, you won the DVD! C'mon down to claim your prize!

For the rest of you, to wrap things up, everyone who saw the movie knows that birth may be a miracle, but it sure ain't pretty. (And this kids, is how we learn the difference between pretty and beautiful).

So, tell us your best birth or pregnancy story - it can be your own story, your mom's, your sister's, your best friend's. Remind us a little bit of life as a miracle, and not just ooey, gooey, screaming, crazy, OMG you're going to push what out of where!?!?!

Crazy cravings, poppin' the kid out in a taxi, any old Hollywood staple as welcome as the new and improved variety of the wonders of reproduction.

This is probably better categorized as a bad story, but it's a true story. I'm a medical student and recently rotated through the OB/GYN service. During one night shift at 3:30 am, my very pregnant and in labor patient tells me she can't hold the baby any more and must start pushing. I tell her I'll go get the delivery team. On my way out, her husband says "by the way, could you bring me a cup of coffee with cream, no sugar?"

I was stunned! I don't think he realized that 1. it is the middle of the night, 2. he is not my patient, 3. this is a hospital, not Starbucks, 4. I'm not his servant/waitress/minion, and 5. HIS WIFE IS ABOUT TO POP HIS BABY OUT OF HER VIJAYJAY.

Of course I go get the delivery team instead of the coffee. Within 5 minutes of the team being in the room, we delivered their baby. As soon as we cleaned up, before I even left the room, the man says: "ok, I'm going to get my coffee now, since the medical student never brought it." UGH! Can you believe it?

Dude, that man needs to purchase a clue. I'm sure the hospital would be happy to charge him for one!
