My pregnancy classes are:
over! We took them a little early, but with May being crazy for music teachers, it worked out for us. We got some great ideas and I am less nervous, now that I know what to expect.
In the classes, I've learned how to:
manage my pain through breathing and focusing. I also have a great position to be in when my back is hurting. When I am lucky, Matthew rubs my back too.
What I've bought for you so far:
I bought a few newborn onesies, a playpen, a stroller, a car seat, a high chair, a swing, and some booties and mittens. (We have a lot more things to get...) I also bought two sleepers and a cute ducky outfit.
What other people have bought for you:
Lia bought two cute t-shirts for the wee one.
The strangest food craving I've had during this pregnancy is:
a billion mini-eggs. I don't think I have had anything too weird. I did want pickles and then an hour or two later I wanted icecream. I did not want pickles and icecream together, although Matthew likes to tell people otherwise.
The strangest piece of advice I've gotten since this pregnancy started is:
wash the floors! It actually isn't bad advice. It helps the baby get to the right position so that I don't have to go through back labor.
At my prenatal visit, I learned:
The baby isn't fat after all! I have also gained 21 pounds, and it is perfectly normal!
to get into my house and have everything painted and situated in time for the baby to come.
that the house won't be ready in time (or that I won't make it through the school year)
