Buddy at child birth class... a success? Not sure


Baby Daddy attended Child Birth class #2. He was very well behaved (for a little while.) I packed him a hamburger to keep him quiet. As soon as the burger was gone, he got the giggles!

During our birth video (yes it was very graphic, and even the mommies didn't want to see this!) As we learn about the placenta..... Buddy yells out, "that looks like steak!" Lesson I learned from this is to bring more food for him next week so his mouth will be too occupied to yell out embarrassing observations! I totally dropped the ball on that one.

Floor exercises were interesting and he is not going to be the best labor and delivery support person, bless his heart, but he's got some time to work on these skills. We focused on how the baby daddy can use massage to relieve mommy's labor back pain...... Well, buddy decides to massage my back with a rice filled sock! Then he nearly pushes me out of my chair as he tries to "apply firm pressure to my lower back." Doesn't know his own strength I guess..... or I just look lots bigger now, so maybe he was trying to compensate for my size. He laughs hysterically because some lady has a (his words after he could stop laughing)"huge wedge" while the other couples are desperately trying to focus on relaxing. Here's to hoping my epidural arrives promptly upon hospital admission! If not, we're in BIG trouble!

I'm surprised we weren't kicked out. As we were leaving, I told the nurse / class leader lady, "See you next week!!!" She did not say, don't come back, so I think we're still in the class at this point. We'll see.

I decided that I deserved the very cute and somewhat expensive delivery gown in the "serra" print to make me feel better..... I will need this gownie to also have magical powers since my baby daddy will be snacking and giggling during labor.

Check out my gownie for the big day!
