This last weekend Jeff and I headed over to the hospital to attend Childbirth Preparation classes. It was a two day class, for 4 hours each day. The instructor was a certified doula who went over different laboring positions, breathing exercises, and some medical assistance information (epidurals, narcotics, c-sections).
It was a ton of information to absorb in two days, but it was definitely an eye opener. The information will help Jeff and I make a more educate decision when it comes to the big day.
One of my favorite laboring positions was on a medicine ball. It felt so comfortable to sit on, we went out and bought one after the first day.
What else is going on:
- We have our hospital tour next week where we get to visit the labor and delivery rooms. I’m getting nervous!
- I’ve entered into the uncomfortable stage of the last trimester. My stomach aches from Kenzie’s constant kicking & stretching.
- Did you know a woman’s brain shrinks by 30% when she’s pregnant? Now I feel less bad when I totally blank out on things.
- Only 8 more weeks till K’s due date & 6 more weeks of work!
