Melissa: C-sections & Lipstick

  • Update: Our little boy is here! Daniel Aiden Deis was born at 7:46 am. He's 7 lbs, 10 oz — lots of hair & has dimples like his big brother.

Melissa Luck, now on maternity leave from KXLY, is having her baby this morning via C-section. She has been tweeting about the blessed event for several days including this Monday: “My sports guy husband might be tempted to tweet the birth. But, I will urge him to resist!” And: “Biggest difference between an emergency c-section and a planned one? Makeup! Already like this one better.” In the last week, she's also mentioned that her “sports guy husband” has been tempted to tweet re: the birth of their second baby. But Melissa writes: “I will urge him to resist!” Also, she said: “I think I just found the most depressing activity on earth: trying on nursing bras three days before you have a baby.”

Question: Anyone else ready to sing the praises of C-section births over natural ones? Or vice versa?
