2nd Trimester

***May Momma's Wednesday Check-In***


Hi all!  Hope you all are having a fantastic week.  Hopefully it?s your last full week of work until the holidays!  Please keep Pennynjon in your T&P?s.  They found out they are Team Pink, but they also found out that their LO has anencephaly. 


QOTD: Are you taking any type of classes?  Second time moms, are you going to take a refresher course or any additional classes?


As we all learn what "Team" we're on, please include your EDD! Thanks so much! 


Here is our check-in for everyone with a due date in May 2010. If you would like to be added please post your bump name, real name (optional), age (optional), and your EDD (expected delivery date). If we missed you at the last check in please post again.

If anything has changed, like your EDD after an ultrasound, please post an update with your original EDD so you can be easily found on the list.

If you are listed in the due date unknown list, please update your due date for us so that you can be added to the correct date.

Check-ins will be Mon, Weds, and Fri mornings.  A link to the Check-in will be posted in the late afternoon/early evenings of Check-in day as a reminder.  Feel free to check-in any time that day.  Give us a general update on your progress and anything else you would like to add.  We will have a question of the day as well.

Re: ***May Momma's Wednesday Check-In***

  • Happy Hump Day.  I am a third time mom and having a planned C-section, so no childbirth classes needed.  Still on the fence about BF, so I may take a BF class if I choose to try it again. 
  • I'm a second time Mom and although it's been almost 6 years, I don't think I'll be taking a refresher course.  We will be taking a hospital tour again because they remodeled the Mother-Baby Unit in the 6 years since I had my dd.  I also signed up my dd for a Babies Need Buddies class.  I can't wait for that - I think she'll love it!
  • We are scheduled for Childbirth Education classes in February. We also get a tour of our new birthing center.  

    I have a list of other classes that I'm interested in and looking into....breastfeeding, infant cpr, infant massage, child safety, prenatal yoga, baby sign language...


    6-9 month siggy challenge - Favorite outdoor photo Mason - outside at Great Gma and Gpa's

    In my Camera Bag: Canon 40D with the Kit Lens, 50mm f/1.8, filters, and 3 LightScoops...two standard and one warm
    On my Wish List: Lot more lenses
  • I didn't take any classes the first time around since I was set on having an epidural and after talking with friends that had gone and not really used anything they learned I decided it just wasn't for me.  I will not be taking any classes this time around either.
  • We are def taking a class.  

    Also, add me to TEAM BLUE!   (mistyblue182, Becky) and my Current due date is listed as May 8th, but its been changed to May 6th.

  • Happy Wednesday! 

    I am signing up for three classes: breastfeeding, childbirth, and a cpr course.  Monday is the "big" u/s, but we will stay on team green until May!


  • We bought a package of classes through our hospital. We'll take a six week Labor and Delivery class, a newborn care/breastfeeding class, an infant CPR and safety class, and postpartum care class. DH gets to take a fathering class, and my parents get a grandparent class.

    Obviously, I'm the type who likes lots of information!

    Rachael and Tim - est. 10.2.04 Lilypie Second Birthday tickers Image and video hosting by TinyPic
  • We'll take a infant CPR/safety class and breastfeeding.
    image Pregnancy Ticker Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
  • Second time mom not taking any birthing classes. But I am taking infant CPR!!
  • QOTD:  Yes, we will take the typical lamaze birthing class, and maybe a BF one....and possibly another 1st time parents type class.  We are getting all the info at our next appt.  Jan 7th!!!  (BIG US!!!)



    Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker

  • QOTD - We're taking a class through our birthing center in March, and I'm either going to take a BFing class or go to a couple few La Leche League meetings. I'm leaning toward the LLL meetings - I know it sounds strange, but I'd like to actually see a baby latch!
  • QOTD: We will take Lamaze at the hospital, but will also buy a Hypnobirthing book. I haven't decided about breastfeeding classes, because several people have told me it's not really necessary and to talk to the lactation consultants at the hospital about any issues. We will probably take a CPR class. I have already been certified in child CPR, but have never taken an infant class. DH doesn't know any CPR. I was going to do yoga, and still may, but I have a personal trainer who teaches yoga, so we do some of the poses during training sessions.

  • Its our first so we're going to take a birthing class through the hospital and possibly a breast feeding class.
    Baby #3 is on the way!

    Also Mama to Max 5/21/10 and Lucy 6/18/12
  • I didn't take any classes the first time and will not be taking them this time either!

    All I did was the hospital tour and I thought that was very useful.  But I've heard all the other classes are a waste of time. 


    Carter Robert 7.18.08 | Brynn Sophia 5.24.10 | Reid Joseph 9.10.12 | Emerson Mae 1.27.14

  • Although I haven't done any research about it yet.  Yes.  We will definately be taking some sort of class.

  • Can't wait to be off for 2 weeks!!!! (and i'm not even a teacher!!!)

    QOTD- No classes for me! We dropped out of lamaze w/DD and did just fine. hoping for a similar experience this go around!

  • QOTD:This is our second and with DS we did not take any classes. I was dead set on getting an epidural, but then that failed when I had a reaction to the medication...my Midwife recommended that we take a hypnobirthing class this time where I am not having an epidural. We were going to take the class, but now are going to get the home study kit and just do it the two of us. My husband really didn't want to go and sit for three hours for five weeks!! I think I would have been exhausted as it goes from 7-10 at night!! This way we can go at our own pace and have time together :)

    Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers Lilypie Third Birthday tickers Lilypie Pregnancy tickers
  • QOTD: I registered for childbirth classes through our hospital. I wanted to do Bradley but couldn't find an instructor who did weekend classes, and there was no way with our work schedule that DH and I could do a weekday class.
  • 2nd time mom - no classes.   We'll tour the hospital and that's it.

  • Please add me!

    May 9th : Jays_bride (Heather) 34, Team Green

    2nd time mom, not taking any additional classes or refreshers ~ DD is only 21 months old!

  • QOTD: Are you taking any type of classes?  Second time moms, are you going to take a refresher course or any additional classes?

    I plan on taking the breastfeeding class and birthing class.



  • I defnitely should, but I'm far behind on everything baby related (paranoia), so no classes have been taken, no work has been done on the nursery, nothing has been bought.

  • Not sure about us...back and forth on it all...
  • Hi Ladies~

    I haven't signed up for, but we're planning on doing:

    -Childbirthing class (possibly Lamaze since I don't know if I want to go natural or with meds)

    -Breastfeeding Class

    -Infant care class (mostly for DH, but I'd like some pointers too).

    I'm going to make DH go to all the classes-- I think it's important for him to learn as much as I do. I've also heard that husbands are more supportive and can provide assistance if they've taken a breastfeeding class.

     Happy Wednesday!

    Lilypie Pregnancy tickers Lilypie Second Birthday tickers
  • QOTD: We'll probably take the birthing classes, infant care, infant CPR, and breastfeeding. Honestly, I'd rather tke a class that I look back and say didn't really teach me that much than go into this completely blind :)
  • I am taking the refresher childbirth class, mostly because I do remember the pain management techniques they taught being useful in early labor, but I don't remember the techniques themselves, plus they give out some info about how to deal with the older sibling and the baby as well. I might take a breastfeeding class this time, I didn't with DD because they said they had one in the hospital, but I felt like all the people at the hospital who were supposed to help me learn weren't very much help at all. We'll see if I can fit the breastfeeding one in, if not I am sure it will come back to me.
  • I will definitely be taking some sort of a class about labor and delivery. I'll have to do more research to see if I need to take some sort of bf'ing class as well since I plan to do that.
  •  I am on team BLUE! hahaha my guess was wrong..  wytang

    and my EDD also changed to 5/17   it was 5/11 (ohh and I am 28 now)


    I plan on taking infant CPR class and breast feeding

  • Please update that we're on team pink! My due date is 5/13 and my guess was boy. So much for mother's intuition on that one. :)

     QOTD: This is our third, so we've pretty much got it down at this point. So, we won't be taking any classes.
