Default 1st childbirth class

Last night was our 1st night of Childbirth Class. It was pretty interesting, informative, and LONG. We were there from 7-9:30. But, the last 25 minutes were "relaxation" time where we all sat on the floor with our partners behind us and they massaged our backs, necks, forehead, jawline while we practiced relaxing breathing methods. It was pretty nice. Before that we watched a video of a baby being born, but it really wasn't too bad. I've got a magazine at home that has pictures more graphic than that video was. Although the placenta part was pretty gnarly. The class is once a week for 5 weeks, so we have 4 left. And we have the hospital tour tonight. I am just so happy to be doing "baby" stuff and gearing up for the big day.

Some other great news: Dh painted the nursery! Yea! And the crib and dresser have arrived and we just have to go pick them up and put them together. Things are starting to come together!

Sounds great!!!! We aren't doing child birth classes this time around. We got the room painted last weekend, all that's left is the trim work. Once that's done this weekend we will start setting everything up. I have everything just waiting to put it in the room. I really would like to clean the carpet first.

We went to an all day childbirth class the first time around. I'm also the oldest of a bunch of kids much younger than me (the next oldest is 16, so 8 years younger that me!) So I kinda get the idea!

Glad your dh got the nursery painted! All those things feel great once they are done!
