Pregnant after IF

V-day & First Baby Birthing Class, check x 2!

Yeaaaaahhhhh, I am so excited to reach the V-day milestone!!!!  Big cheers to my super little girl for making this far Drinks

Congrats to fellow friends, Lachey & Luv to get to mileston, too!!! 

We had our first Lamaze birthing class this past Saturday.  It is usually for 6 weeks, but we took one day class instead and it was very good.  The instructor went over pre/post birth process and showed 3 birthing videos....right before lunch, ugh!  Afternoon was hands-on session and we learned lamaze breathing techniques.  Also DH learned massage techniques and I was in heaven during session!!  Finally, it was a hospital tour.  I know now where I am going to deliver my baby and things are feeling so real now!!!!!

    My hospital actually ecommended to take this particular class b/w 3-5th month of pregancy, but I took it around 6th month.  I registered others in Dec & Jan.  I don't want to forget what I learned, but I just thought I would take most of them during 2nd tri when I have tons of energy!

  • Woo hoo!  Congrats, Candyreese.  And thanks for the shout out.  Can't believe I made it this far. 

    I'm glad your class went well.  I'm waiting for the RN to call me so that we can schedule our NICU tour.  More on the scary side than exciting, but I want to be prepared for the worst so that we aren't caught off guard should these little guys make an early appearance.  Still nice to get one more thing checked off my to do list.

  • Yay for V-day!!! I can't wait to reach this point in about two weeks. Speaking of birthing classes... this lady needs to stop slacking and do some heavy research into ones in the area and get to it. I think my worries about the pregnancy have kept me from doing much of what I need to up to this point. Glad to hear that everything went so well for you!

    The instructor pointed at the NICU during the tour and I thought about a lot of baby fighters in the room!  I think it's a great idea for you to have NICU tour just in case, but I hope your turkeys keep baking more!!!

    I am pushing myself to cross out tons of items from my checklist because time is flying by!!!!! 

    Does your hospital offer classes?  I just took mine through my hospital.  I bet your OB can help you with the info, too.  GL!!!
