9 More Weekends to Go!
So, the weekend is practically over, ALREADY! I seriously feel like we didn't even have a weekend with all the birthing classes we had this weekend! We did the weekend "marathon" course, where you go from 9-3 Saturday and 1-5 Sunday. It was a ton of info crammed into a weekend, but well worthwhile. Our class was pretty large, and there were some good questions asked. We learned all about child birth (natural, medicated and c-section), as well as recovery, newborn care, a tour of the hospital and everything we'll need to know when it's our time. We even ended up sitting next to a couple who actually only lives about 3 or 4 blocks away! Of course my fave part of the class was the "relaxation" part where we got nice massages from our "support person".
I think one of the main things I took away from this weekend is how glad I am not to be in horrible shape. There were two seriously obese girls in there - who were basically 100% miserable. I'm talking the type of obese where one of them was constantly breathing through her mouth and was ALWAYS out of breath - walking across the room for water, in the everlong bathroom line, and she couldn't even get in the "push" position or the support thing with her partner. Crazy. And she was first in line for the fried chicken tenders one of our classmates brought in for all of us today (he owns the local chicken place). And I saw a big ole Coke in her bag. Honestly, it just seems like if you're in that bad a shape a)how are you going to survive labor and b) wouldn't you want to make some changes once you found out you were pregnant?
Anyway, it was quite the weekend and we'll be back tomorrow for our next doctor's appointment! We are really becoming hospital regs.
And can I just say it is SO good to see Kiefer back as Jack Bauer on 24!!!!!!
