Tyler and I have been taking a birthing class and last week was a lot about techniques to deal with PAIN. Each lady was given a zip-lock bag of ice to hold in her hand to simulate contraction pain. While holding the ice we tried different techniques to distract from the pain. We did things like slow breathing, looking at a picture, getting a massage, walking around, and smelling lavender (which I hate, so it had kind of an opposite effect on me).
My FAVORITE was looking at a picture. Tyler pulled out his phone and Googled "pugs in the sun" and this picture came up.
I could not stop laughing the entire time. I was probably distracting the other ladies in the room from focusing on their own photos but I certainly was not thinking about the pain.
