Childbirth Class-Part 1

Last night Daddy and I went to our first childbirth class.  We learned all about labor and how to cope with labor pains.  Daddy and I practices some breathing techniques for when Mommy has contractions as well as some positions that might make labor more comfortable for mommy when the time comes.  We also got some ideas of what to pack in our hospital bag.  Mommy didn't think to pack a candle warmer and some of her favorite smelling candles to help with relatation, so we added those things last night once we got home.  We have another class next Thursday and then we will get to talk about IV pain meds and epidurals.  We also get to take a tour of the birthing center so that should be exciting (although we were already there we mommy got dehydrated) it will be different now getting to see the whole center and not just one room! Mommy will also have her 34week appointment next Thursday.  Time is really starting to move fast...

  1. Baby Girl, Nani is getting so excited to see you that I am having a hard time concentrating on anything else. I can't believe you will be here with us in 6 short weeks, it seems so overwhelming. I can't wait to kiss your sweet face.
