Why? Why would super, supermodel Gisele Bündchen go and say that giving birth wasn’t painful?! Why would she do that to all of us non-supermodel women? In a recent interview Gisele spoke about her experience giving birth saying, "It wasn't painful, not even a little bit. The whole time, my head was so focused . . . every contraction, the baby is closer, the baby is closer. So, it wasn't like, 'Oh, what pain.' It was, 'With every contraction, he is getting closer to me.'" If you’re thinking that she was obviously doped up on drugs to feel so good think again! She did it drug-free. She said, "I wanted to be conscious and present for what was happening. I didn't want to be anesthetized. I wanted to feel."
Now I have every intention of focusing as hard as I can on delivering this baby boy of mine safely and with as little self-inflicted pain as possible, but seriously. NO PAIN? Come on Gisele! Isn’t that… impossible?!
And just when you think it couldn’t get any worse she said she was back on her feet almost immediately, quote, "The second day, I was walking, I was washing dishes, I was making pancakes in the kitchen."
John, I love you, but I do not intend on doing dishes or cooking pancakes for us the day after giving birth. Gisele Bündchen… Supermodel or Superwoman?
