Those who have attempted the heavy weight title of drug-free labor can look upon Megan Fox‘s birthing story with empathy. The new mother of 10-week-old Noah Shannon had planned to go to the delivery room without any pain relief. But her pain threshold had other plans. Happens to the best of us, Fox.

People magazine reports that Megan felt that first contraction and quickly reconsidered her au natural birthing plan. A harpoon-like pain right through your lady business will do that:

“And I thought I was gonna be really tough and make it, I was going to labor to eight centimeters … but the first contraction I got was horrific!”

Before even getting to the hospital, Megan was telling husband Brian Austin Green that an epidural would definitely be in order and STAT:

“I was screaming for an epidural when

[Brian]

was driving me to the hospital because my water broke on its own and immediately — it was level orange pain alert,” she recalls.

Let it also be known that a little hair blow-drying also ensued before the Fox-Greens took off for the hospital, as the actress didn’t want to be holed up in the maternity ward with wet hair. Definitely a discomfort you don’t want to have among all the scratchy towels.
