I have watched One Born Every Minute for as long as it has been on TV, which is since 2010 by the way (7 years!! WTF?!). Every episode brings a tear to my eye for one reason or another, whether it be seeing the bond between the parents, the crazy cuteness of the babies or just that feeling of pure joy that you can tell is completely overwhelming.
I was 18 when I first started watching it, and I don’t think it really sunk in just what you have to go through. This probably wasn’t helped by the hours of labour that are squeezed into just one hour. I used to think I bet I could do that!
But now? Absolutely not.
Because we are now actively trying, the thought of pushing an actual human out of my v-jay-jay is bloody terrifying. How is it even possible? I cannot imagine the pain. The tearing, the stretching, the pushing *shudders at the thought*.
Saying that, you learn so much about what to expect, or at least I think you do. Lots of people tell me it is nothing like what we see on TV. So then I think that I might have false expectations.
So Mums, what do you think? Is One Born genuine?
