Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Ours was jam packed. We didn't get much time for rest and relaxation at all. Because you know what we did??
Dun, dun, dun.
That's right. Matt and I spent all day Saturday and Sunday engrossing ourselves in the birthing process. Let me just tell you, it freaked me the heck out people! I mean, every single one of those women in the videos looked like they wanted to actually die. All I wanted to do was to see just one woman smile. Just one. But all I got were moans, groans, and screams. Not pleasant.
Now don't get me wrong. Clearly I know that birthing a child is a painful process. I didn't expect it not to be. I just wasn't prepared for the up close and personal view of doing it.
But I think overall the class was helpful. Now I know what to expect, I have strategies to help me through the pain, and if those don't work...I know all about the drugs :) Plus, the part of the class where I just got to lie there and get a massage was totally worth the cash.
Can I just tell you though that when we learned hand massages, Matt made me do it to him! I know. My husband made his pregnant wife massage him during childbirth class. I looked around the room making the observation that no other wife had to do this. You know his response? "You're the best wife in this class." Ha. Nice cover my friend.
Other than all things babies, we did have a chance to get our beautiful Christmas tree from the farm and put up almost all of the decorations. Isn't Christmas time just the most fabulous time of the year? It makes my heart so happy :) I'll share pics soon!
As for now, I'm off to learn infant CPR! Woot, woot! Wish me luck!
