Baby Class

On Wednesday we had our first birthing/baby class. We're taking the Bradley Method course-- because I'm going to attempt to give birth naturally. I'm not crazy or anything-- not a lover of pain, but childbirth is something I just want to experience.

I say that now, but I'm totally allowing myself the option of changing my mind when it comes down to it. I think thats fair.

Anyways, so as we're walking into the class Rambo says to me, "Can you just have the baby already? That way I don't have to go through these classes... it's going to be horrible!" But in his defense, he did pretty well for the first class. He didn't look any more uncomfortable than any of the other dads present, and he didn't make any faces. He even got a laugh when the teacher asked him "Why Bradley" and he answered "Because Lauren said so."

I don't know at what point we will watch a birthing video (I'm sure we will...) but we will see how he holds up during that. I'm almost certain it's going to be blog worthy.

In other pregnancy news, I have absolutely no idea how I am going to get 10 MORE weeks pregnant. I can tell the baby has grown significantly (it seems like just in the last few days) because I am peeing ALL the time. I was never one to get up in the middle of the night, but now I'm feeling my way in the dark, over two furry bodies, two times a night at least! When I whine about it to Rambo, he says "at least the baby's hydrated."

True. But that doesn't mean I have to like it.

Rambo has also made a request for a "healthy 10 pounder." At which point I remind him that the stork doesn't deliver this baby... I do. And so we've altered that request to a "healthy 7 pounder" which seems fair to me.

It's still crazy to think there's a little person in there. But I sure can't wait to meet him!
