First off, you MUST pay good money to learn how to do supposedly the "most natural thing in the world." Well, sign me up for a class cause I don't have a clue!
Luckily I know two other couples in our 7 or 8 couple class, so what I am about to tell you is not a big deal. Even to a hormonal pregnant lady.
I originally planned to learn how to "support the stork" in his baby business during the August classes (no July class offered and we are due Sept 30). The Tehans happened to have enrolled in the June class, so at the last minute I change my mind and decide we should also attend the June class. Well, Bryan had fully committed to the August schedule and could not make it to the first June class........Who cares, I'll go alone! no biggie, right?
I am super prepared for class alone. I stop at sonic so I can smuggle some fries in my purse in case we have to stay longer than half an hour (good thing cause it lasted from 6-9 but the lady had snacks so we made it) and I have a new sonic drink that is now a full blown addiction.... go out and try the new Mango Cool Breeze!!!! (only if you like sprite, mango, pineapple, and other tropical goodness. mmmmmm mmmmmmm good!) I'm alone, but I have my snacks, so I'm good.
I am the ONLY pregnant lady without a baby daddy present! So we go around the room and introduce ourselves. I'm (mom's name) this is my first baby I'm due (due date) etc.... And this is my husband.... so and so (then baby daddy gets to say very few words merely to prove he is present and alert. One baby daddy tried to speak but was immediately ignored!) so we go around the room and it gets to me.
At this point, I'm thinking that I could really have fun with this. Here were the obvious options.... "I'm Suzanne, ummmm I don't know who my babby daddy is so I need all the stork support I can get!" OR (remember I am sitting next to L&L Tehan) "I'm Suzanne, like Lauren, I too think Lee is my baby daddy! But we're cool with that!"............ I chickened out and informed the class that my baby daddy had to work and he would join us next Monday night.
Now, Buddy does not know this (don't tell him or he'll skip out on class 2 of 4 and I'm pretty sure I would be shunned after 2 baby daddy absences), but we have "floor exercises for relaxation techniques" next week. We had to be informed of this so the cute preggos don't try to be too cute and wear dresses to class. Since there is no danger of buddy wearing a dress to class, I will keep this a secret so I can watch his face light up in class when it is time for our "floor exercises" YAY!
(We may also watch C sec and actual birth videos, so that will really top off his evening!)
Next Stork Support Update coming Monday, June 8.... hopefully with pictures. Also, get pumped (bad pun) about nursing class in July!!! (Bryan is not allowed to attend and he thinks the actual term is "boob-feeding" which is cute as can be so we won't tell him any different!)
