Last weekend, Andrew and I attended the birth preparation class held at the hospital. It was very informative and I feel so much more prepared for the labor and delivery process. Of course, still really nervous but it's an excited/nervous. Andrew actually handled it better than I did! I thought some of the breathing exercises were silly and I would giggle during them. Much to my suprise..Andrew would remind me that I needed to get with it and take this serious. haha. But I'm well aware that I won't be giggling during the realy thing. Anyway, I would highly recommend any expecting moms and dads to take part in such a class!
Also, I just want to briefly mention a side effect of a large belly. Recently, as in the past week or so, I have been suffering from chronic food stains on my shirts. In the belly region of course. No matter WHAT I do...after a meal I look down and somehow some portion of my meal has landed directly on stomach. I've attributed this to not being able to lean over my plate when I eat. Most the time, I have to lean back while I eat to make room..for some reason it seems to help. So there's a greater distance now that my fork has to travel to reach my mouth. Hence, the food stain on all my attire. I guess I will just have to start wearing a bib.
