To post or not to post

I'm debating. Going back and forth. Considering how much is too much...or if there is such a thing, in this case.

I wrote Henry's birth story and it took me a very long time. We had quite the saga there toward the end. I wanted to record every last detail just the way I remember it...and for a number of reasons. First, because it was the most amazing thing that Dameon and I have ever gone through together and all the praise goes to Jesus. Secondly, so that I don't forget any of the details. And also so that we can look back when we go through it again and compare notes.

I had originally intended to post the story. Since it is so special and meaningful to us, I thought others would want to read it. And also since I use this blog as a sort of journal, it made sense to include the story of how Henry arrived.

But now I'm debating. I wrote the story so that we could remember all the details. That means it's pretty personal. You know, with words like cervix and dilation and stuff. Is it right to put that out there for the world to read? Or is it just plain T.M.I. ?

Hmmmm....to post or not to post....

Just a thought: Several of my friends have posted theirs as private. To read it you had to obtain a password from the author to view the post. That way they knew who exactly was reading all the intimate details and could ultimately say no if they didn't know the person or feel comfortable.

I love reading other people's birth stories! They are very personal, but I think it's a beautiful thing to share the miracle of birth with others, and it honors God by sharing with others the blessing you received from him!

You know my vote is POST. People can skip it if they aren't comfortable with all the details. I love birth stories!!
