This Monday’s overdue open thread is hosted by my sweet Three Wolf Moon shirt (Note: Read the product reviews). What will the powers of my favorite internet meme do for maternity care in the U.S. and beyond?

Wolf Shirt bonded w/ my unovulated eggs and then protected me through my whole pregnancy. I might have been eaten by my vampire boyfriend if not for Wolf Shirt. Unfortunately, Wolf Shirt does not prevent fang-cesarean.

ACOG changed their logo to the Three Wolves and the cesarean rate dropped to 22% that week.

Sitting side saddle so my wolves would show! JILL, I HAVE HOMEWORK. It is due at midnight. Like, tonight. And insteaad I am going to be snickering like a naughty schoolgirl over these reviews all night.

I'm glad we didn't go to high school together.

Three wolf moon shirt answers random troll-y comments without your ever having to type a word.

MomTFH, I am going to put the shirt on RIGHT NOW!

You know I'm going to wear this when I visit you in a few months, right? By then I'll have it fancied up with some fringe.

Clearly my midwife was missing an item from her homebirth supply list . . . This explains sooooo much :)

Three Wolf Moon shirt can help deliver your hybrid hellspawn by ripping through your amniotic sac with his teeth - but won't push a vampire cesarean first. You can totally birth naturally first, assuming you have the vampire strength to push out your vampire baby.

Also, Three Wolf Moon shirt has some great deals on Louboutin boots.

I arrived at the hospital in labor. The triage nurse told me that I was 4 centimeters so she admitted me. Things were going along well, but I got tired. Really tired. I decided to get an epidural to get some rest and a break from contractions.

After a few hours, it was almost dinner time and I started getting hints from the staff that the doctor was really wanting to deliver this baby, one way or the other. Fortunately, my husband remembered the Three Wolf Moon shirt we had stashed in the hospital bag. We cut a slit in the back and awkwardly slid the shirt over the iv and monitors and, lo, I felt no pain. The epidural catheter fell out of my back and I found myself on all fours. I went from supine to lupine in less than one second. The power of the shirt filled me and the staff were as if blinded by its presence. With one last growl, I pushed that baby into her father's hands.

Thank you, Three Wolf Moon Shirt!

Oh, Jill, you will have to to cut the sleeves into fringe and knot little plastic beads onto the strands.

Too. hot. for Miami to handle.

I just have to say thank you. I needed that laugh, and I will be sharing it with anyone I can think of.
