Childbirth Classes

Aaron and I start our childbirth classes tonight and I'm really excited. We missed the 1st one since we were on our cruise, but there are still 4 more. Here's the deal: I already know quite a lot about childbirth. I've delivered babies vaginally, watched tons of babies being born, and assisted on caesarean sections. So it's not like I expect to learn a ton about the process.

The reason I'm so excited is because I get to go to childbirth classes. Because I'm pregnant!!! There were so many days that I never thought we'd ever get to this point and I feel like I'm invited to an invitation-only event. I suppose anyone could sign up, but don't ruin this for me. :) I'm pretending like it's a really exciting thing that I've earned the right to go to. Like the expectant mom parking at Babies-R-Us. In fact, when we got the letter in the mail from the hospital about our classes, I actually cried. Which is kinda psychotic.

And I love showing off my bump to everyone. It was actually my favorite part of the cruise. Everyone treats you nicer and compliments you! Speaking of the cruise, I gained a hefty 5 pounds while we were gone due to incredible food and massive quantities. So I'm at a 17 pound weight gain so far. Still hoping to stay less than 30 pounds total, but we'll see... I'll be posting pics and giving more trip details tomorrow when I have more time.

But as for now, I'm prepping up for my classes and celebrating Gil's 26th week in utero!!! This little baby is going to be debuting soon...


  1. Woo hoo....enjoy child birth class! I am sure you'll still learn plenty because the tables are turned and YOU are the prego now!

  2. It is like an exclusive club or something, right? Go and enjoy!!!

  3. I've been wondering when I'm supposed to start the classes. I can't believe you got a hospital must not be as on the ball. Sounds so much fun though!

  4. At least you get to go to classes. I called Mercy to set up our classes and apparently the conference room where they have them is under construction for the summer and they won't restart until September...ummm a little late for me. SOOO, I may just drag Jason up there and take a tour to get aquainted with the place. They offered for me to go to one of the other hospitals if I wanted to but I'd have to pay for it - sorry not doing that either. I'm excited for you to start your classes and can't wait to hear about the cruise! Call me when you have a chance sometime :)
