Incase you missed my tweet yesterday I have become an aunty!!! I am now aunty Siu! My brother’s wife gave birth to a beautiful little girl- I know people say when babies are born they all look the same BUT my niece is the cutest and yeah I am probably being biased but whatever, I am allowed. It actually got me thinking about giving birth and would I be wearing glasses? Sounds like a strange thing to pop into mind but I was chatting to my sister-in-law who had a difficult birth and many other issues.  I am learning and mentally preparing myself because I have been married for 14months so naturally everyone thinks I should be popping them out by now!

I do love children and I am good with them so is my husband, so yes of course that would be the next step. In the meantime until it happens I want to find out something from readers who wear glasses that have been through labour. Why? Because I want to know when you go into labour do you wear glasses or contacts? It may seem like a silly question and I know when you are busy being in labour that would be the last thing you think about but I am curious.

Wearing contacts I assume will be a good option coz when you really have to push the sweating will probably make your glasses slide off and you don’t want to be blind or blurry because a lot is going on. However. You could be in labour for hours and dry eyes may happen so what do you do then? It’s a glasses wearer dilemma. I am definitely intrigued.

I don’t know what I would do yet but perhaps I should start thinking about it? I don’t think I would want to wear glasses because the sweating and pushing will probably make my glasses slide off, I wouldn’t want to miss what is going on. On the other hand I don’t want to wear contacts and have a really long labour, then my eyes start would to hurt because they are dry, but at least I could see everything at all times. I mean as if I would want the first memory of seeing my child as just a massive blur. What do you think? Ladies… Please share your wisdom on this.
