“Sweet. That was easy! Maybe I will use this while I’m on my period too!”

That will not be happening. And let me tell you why. I threw it in the trash once I finally got it out of my vagina!

“Shit”

OK Jess, don’t freak out. It has the grip thingy on the bottom of it. I bet you just pull on that and it will come out.

I’ve birthed babies. I’m going to try to push it out! Same hole right?

So I bore down the same way I did when birthing my 7 pound babies. Hard. With all my might. They all came out with about two pushes so why the hell will this thing not come out?

Please God, get this out of me!

I keep pushing, this time with more might. Pulling and pushing, I finally get that thing out of me. SLURP! Oh, thank God!
