Irrational Fear – Conehead babies

I just saw some of the most amazing pictures of the most beautiful newborn with a head so perfectly round she looked like a little perfectly sculpted doll. Of course, she was a C section baby. That’s the trade off for having the doctor rip open your abdomen to remove an 8 lb growth – you get a baby with a perfect, sweet head. I know nobody is supposed to wish for a C section, but part of me is really worried about what my baby will look like if I deliver naturally. I mean, you have to admit, we’ve all seen those newborns…and…well, you can just tell. Some you look at and it’s like, damn, she must have been trying to squeeze him out for days! It doesn’t make them any less lovable, and I’m told the head goes back to normal after a while, but I have just always had this irrational fear that I’m going to give birth to something that resembles a Conehead. Like they are just going to pop out of me and begin referring to me as their Parental Unit and demanding footlong subs.
